Happy Cinco De Mayo

Since my last post was for one bowl ( er two bowl) cupcakes for two a vanilla and a chocolate version I thought why not a Margarita version for today. I will be making these today so I don't have a picture right now but here is the recipe

(these are my original margarita cupcakes found here)

One Bowl Margarita Cupcakes for Two
serves 2
1 egg white
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tsp lime juice/extract
zest of 1 lime
1/4 cup flour
1/4 heaping teaspoon of baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon milk
½ tablespoon tequila

glaze - 1 tbsp tequila

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin pan with 2 liners.
In a bowl, add egg white and sugar and whisk until combined. Add in juice/extract, zest and melted butter and stir until mixed. Add flour, baking powder and salt and stir until smooth. Stir in milk and tequila. Divide batter equally between the 2 cupcake liners.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes, or until cake is set. Cool in pan for 5 min and brush on the 1 tbsp tequila evenly between the cupcakes. 1 tbsp might be to much so pour it in a shot glass and top it off with more. Do a shot of tequila. Why not? Its Cinco de mayo!! Take cupcakes out of pan and et cool completely on a wire rack, then frost as desired.

For frosting for two cupcakes my guess would be
1/4 cup butter - softened
2/3-3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 tablespoon tequila
zest of one lime
pinch of coarse salt like kosher salt
mix butter til light and fluffy - add in powdered sugar til you get stiff consistency, add the juice and tequila til you reach desired consistency and add salt and zest
