#44 Mustard Cupcakes

Not sure what I was thinking when I decided on this flavor..... Don't get me wrong I cant live without the yellow stuff but now I understand why some flavors just were not meant to be put in a cupcake! Along with mustard I promise never to make cuppys with anchovies. mushrooms, tater tots, or anything extremely gross sounding. I'll keep the mustard for my chicken, fries, and yes carrots and cucumbers (raw of course) :)

Mustard Cupcakes
If you're a mustard fan I think you'll like the actual batter the best....

The Goods
1 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons of cake flour sifted
3/4 cup agave nectar syrup (or honey)
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup sour cream room temp
2 eggs room temp
1 teaspoon vanilla

The How To
Preheat oven to 350degrees. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, in a large bowl.

In the bowl of a stand mixer combine eggs and sour cream on medium-low speed.

Opps a little fuzzy there!
Add the vanilla, mustard and agave syrup and mix on low speed until combined.

MMMMM Mustard!!!

The agave syrup gave it a pretty shine :)
With the mixer on low add the flour mixture and mix until just combined.

Fill liners about 3/4 full and bake for 15-18mins.

They look like lemon or even corn muffins... Would that be an awesome April fools for next year??

While the cupcakes are cooling poke holes in the top of the cuppy's and add more agave nectar. Then let cool compelety before frosting.

I realized after doing a couple of these it goes much quicker if you just shove the tip of the agave syrup into the cupcake.

Mustard Buttercream
This ended up being so gross I only did one cupcake with the frosting. I even tried it out twice. If you've got a better alternative PLEASE share!!

The Goods
3 sticks of butter room temp
1 cup of agave nectar or honey)
5 tablespoons flour
3 teaspoons vanilla
2-3 teaspoons mustard
Dash of salt

The How To
Beat the butter on medium-high speed for 2mins. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until combined. And if you think it's edible enough then frost those cuppys and top them off with some pretzel pieces.

On a more exciting note I had a review done on a set of my wraps and toppers on the spectacular blog Little boys are made of frogs and snails and puppy dog tails  There is also a giveaway too. So swing by and check it out. You have until April 18th to enter! If you haven't been by my store then shame on you because you've been missing out!!!

  1. Do you taste the mustard in this cupcake? I am curious if it even tastes like it?
