How would you feel if you knew that your favorite foods could be combined into a perfect storm of deliciousness? I mean, I’m still waiting for someone to develop some sort of dark chocolate/pasta/cheese dish. Nigella, I’m looking at you.Needless to say, I was pretty damn excited when I found this recipe for Beer Cheese Cupcakes with Bacon Cheddar Frosting. Ridiculous? Yes. Possibly fantastic? YES! My girls Darcie and Jill were kind enough to drink a lot of beer and eat all the extra cheese with me as we challenged the belief that bacon doesn’t play well with baked goods.
The results? Goodish. It was all a bit sweet for me and I was only able to eat one cupcake, instead of my usual five, so I’d suggest reducing the sugar in both the batter and the frosting if you’re going to give these a go. But totally worth making, particularly if you want to steal the show at the next potluck you attend.
P.S. Do you know any recipes that incorporate cheese in an awesome/weird way that I need to know about?
