Rum and Coke Cupcakes

I am still proving to my H that cupcakes are just as good if not better than brownies, and so I decided to do a more grownup version of cupcakes – and these were perfect. He always appreciates a good rum and coke (not to mention so do I), and I happened to actually have some coke in the house for once. This grown up version of a cupcake is also perfect for my friends birthday that was on the weekend – Happy 25th!

I found the recipe for Rum and Coke Cupcakes on I Heart Cuppycakes site and couldn’t wait to try them. I followed her recipe (well I halved everything, but otherwise didn’t make any changes), and the turned out great!

I loved these, H loved these, my friend loved these and H’s coworkers loved these. Even his boss couldn’t wait to get his hands on one. One of his coworkers told me “oooooh, they are just like a rum and coke! I knew they tasted familiar” after a couple of bites, so they were bang on.

Thanks for the great recipe Clara.
