Around these parts, we are mostly about healthy but delicious recipes. And that is fine. But sometimes, you need a little splurge. These Angry Orchard cupcakes are the perfect splurge, ideal for fall and just sweet enough to satisfy your cravings.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 12 ounces Angry Orchard hard cider
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
    For frosting:
    • 2 sticks butter, softened
    • 2 cups powdered sugar
    • 1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
    • Splash of milk or cream

    Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin tin with paper liners.
    2. Combine butter and sugar in a mixer until light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
    3. Pour in the cider and mix slowly until incorporated.
    4. In a small bowl, combine nutmeg, cinnamon, flour and baking powder. Pour the mixture, in two batches, into the butter mixture. Mix well until fully combined.
    5. Divide the batter into the muffin tins, filling them ¾ to the top. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until cooked through. Allow to cool fully before icing.
    6. To prepare icing, combine butter and powdered sugar in a mixer and beat until well mixed.
    7. Add in cinnamon and stir until combined. Add in a splash of cream to thin if necessary.
    8. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a star tip and pipe onto cupcakes. Garnish with bottle cap, if you want.

    Being a fan of the Angry Orchard Hard Cider, I was very excited to see Kim’s latest recipe for the cupcakes! I made them this weekend and they were a big hit. They have a nice apple cinnamon flavor and are by far the moistest cupcakes I have ever had! A big hit with my family!

    In the late summer and fall of 2018 a tsunami of publicity for the movie Crazy Rich Asians hit America. In August there was a write-up in the New York Post, New Yorker and the Weekend Financial Times (a big, bold headline on the front page – very unusual).

    Looking at AI

    January 02, 2019

    We’re entering a brand new year so I believe it’s time to tackle a subject I’ve been avoiding: Artificial Intelligence. Why have I been skirting around AI for so long? Full disclosure: No matter how much I read about it – I still don’t really grasp it.

    BODYWEAR

    We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

    Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

     

    MODAL TEES

    Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

    Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
