Hard cider and Fireball cupcakes are filled with flavor… and alcohol. Fireball and Angry Orchard are infused in this spiced cupcake recipe.
DISCLAIMER: You will have to eat a lot of Fireball cupcakes to feel the effects of the alcohol… and that is okay because these cupcakes are INCREDIBLE.
Let me start by saying that I am a seasonal person—seasonal eater, seasonal drinker, and seasonal runner (I do not run in the cold, sorry). My go-to drink in the fall is Angry Orchard hard cider sometimes with a shot of Fireball. When I saw this recipe for hard cider cinnamon cupcakes I just had to try it. They turned out lovely and that is not the Fireball talking.
The spiced cake batter is the epitome of fall. The hard cider brings out all the spices (think: nutmeg and cinnamon). Then there’s the caramel apple filling. I could have eaten those glazed apples by the spoonful. They are the perfect filling and topping for these Fireball cupcakes. Of course the dessert wouldn’t be complete without the buttercream frosting, which is spiked with the cinnamon whiskey.
Hard cider and Fireball cupcakes are every bit of deliciousness you need in a dessert. Spiced with fall flavors and kicked up a notch with some alcohol, once you take a bite there is no turning back.
