Cream Soda Cupcakes

Yummy...what an awesome combination!! Cream soda and cake...ahh, it takes me back to my childhood.
The Ingredients

  • 2 cups cake and pastry flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 1 1/2 tsp real vanilla
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup cream soda
  • Brown Butter Frosting

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line eighteen muffin cups with paper liners. Spray lightly with cooking spray (this actually helps the cupcake come away from the paper). Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on high for 30 seconds. Add both sugars and beat until well combined. On low speed, beat in eggs, one at a time, until combined. Beat in molasses and vanilla.

  3. Alternately add flour mixture, buttermilk, and cream soda to butter mixture. Beat on low speed after each addition until combined. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake about 18 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched.

  4. Remove from pans; cool. Frost with Brown Butter Frosting.
