Coca-Cola Cupcakes!


What you need:

For the Cupcakes

  • 12 ounces Coca-Cola┬«
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • Vanilla frosting, or whatever flavor your family loves!

For the Topping

  • 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • maraschino cherries, optional

For the Cupcakes

  1. Preheat the oven to 350┬░F. Line 24 standard muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. In the bowl combine the Coca-Cola®, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla.
  3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add in sour cream, mix until fully mixed.
  4. In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the cocoa, sugar, flour, and baking soda.
  5. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until well combined. The batter will be thin, so don’t worry!
  6. Pour into your cupcake tin, I filled mine about 3/4 of the way
  7. Bake 20-25 minutes. Remove pan to wire rack. Cool completely before removing from muffin tins.

**Once cooled, pipe your favorite icing! Life Hack: Use a sandwich bag, put it in a cup, fill it about 3/4 of the way with icing. Pull it out, cut one of the corners of your bag and viola! Your own piping bag.

For the Topping

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm the heavy cream hot, just not boiling.
  2. Place chocolate in a heat-safe bowl. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and allow it to sit for about 5 minutes. Whisk the cream and chocolate until smooth. Whisk in the honey and vanilla. Allow to cool for about 5-10 minutes. Do not let the glaze sit for too long or it will harden up before you spoon it over the frosting.
  3. Spoon the glaze on the tops of the frosted cupcakes, allowing it to drip down the sides a little bit.
  4. Top it with a maraschino cherry!
