Cupcakes made with Sam Adams Boston Ale (from the Sam Adams Blog)
Makes 24 cupcakes. Originally made with Boston Lager, but I made the decision to use the Boston Ale. I do not regret my decision
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1.5 cups of white sugar
  • 3 large eggs (at room temperature)
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2.5 cups of all-purpose flour (sifted)
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • ⅓ cup Samuel Adams Boston Ale
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line 2 cupcake tins with cupcake liners.
  3. In an electric mixer, beat together the sugar and butter until fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs and egg yolks and beat until smooth and fluffy.
  5. In a large bowl, sift the flour and add the baking powder and salt.
  6. In a small bowl, mix the milk and Boston Ale.
  7. Add ⅓ of the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, and mix well. Then add ½ of the milk/beer to the butter mixture and beat. Continue alternating adding the dry ingredients and milk/beer until it is entirely incorporated.
  8. Scoop batter into the cupcake liners, and fill ⅔ of the way.
  9. Bake 16-18 minutes (top rack of oven, bottom may take longer), or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes clean.
