I have been on a huge champagne kick lately. I don’t know what it is but whenever I want a glass of wine recently, I feel myself grabbing a bottle of champagne instead.
I’ve always loved champagne but now there’s just something about it that I can’t get enough of. That happens often to me, there are times when I eat or drink something and then for weeks all I want is that thing.
Does that happen to you?
Anyway, since I’m on such a champagne kick it felt just natural to try and create a champagne cupcake when partnering with Bob’s Red Mill again for some delicious spring baking.
I love working with Bob’s Red Mill and their line of flours because their all-purpose white flour is unbleached and organic. It’s not enriched with any additives and produces supremely delicious light, and airy baked goods. Especially cupcakes.
Side Note: I seriously cannot wait for spring. Springtime here in Michigan is just gorgeous. And, of course, there is the warmer (!!!) weather and more sunny days that come along with that.
Springtime also calls for brunches out on covered (or uncovered) patios while sipping mimosas. Then brunch with mimosas makes me think of Easter and Mother’s Day. What better way to celebrate either of those holidays than with a rosé champagne cupcake?
And these beautiful rosé champagne cupcakes were born.
I not only added champagne to the cupcake batter but also the buttercream frosting so there is that full champagne flavor flowing throughout this cupcake.
I actually made these cupcakes while my mom was in town visiting and we celebrated an early Mother’s Day together since I probably won’t see her again until after. So it was nice to celebrate with these cupcakes while also sipping on the leftover champagne.
