Blue Moon Bacon Cheddar Savory Cupcakes Recipe


Cupcakes do not need to be sweet. Some, like these Blue Moon Bacon Cheddar Cupcakes, fall into the savory category. These consist of eggs, flour, baking soda, sour cream, vanilla extract, Blue Moon beer (which should bake out while in the oven, but makes these for adults-only nonetheless), butter, cheese and brown sugar. The frosting is a mixture of cream cheese, butter, cheddar cheese and powdered sugar. Bake, frost and top with bacon bits before serving as an appetizer!
