Hope you all are having a great weekend. Weekend for me is all about organizing myself for the next week and outdoor activities. In between all this, my kids planned a play date and by the evening I will be playing host to 7 young boys. With little time left on hand, I get on my mission to fix something yummy and tasty making sure that treats are prepared to everyone’s liking. After brainstorming I came up with these easy- to- fix cupcakes that would match up to the energy level of these young energetic boys.
Soft & moist cupcakes packed with butterscotch flavor and topped off with homemade whipped cream topping. Sounds delicious right?? And yes they are bursting with flavor. No one can resist these cupcakes as they are so yummy, and so good- a total delish!! This recipe is adapted from cindysrecipesandwritings.
I started off this recipe by preparing sugar syrup – boiled 1/3 cup sugar with 1 cup of water. It reduces down to 3/4 cup and later added 1/4 cup of additional warm water to the boiled 3/4 cup of sugar syrup and that is what I need for this recipe – 1 cup of warm sugar syrup.
Rest of the recipe is pretty simple – sift flour with dry ingredients and then mix wet ingredients. Whisk them up and drop in some flour-coated butterscotch chips/morsels. Coating butterscotch chips will prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the cupcakes.. but some will still sink. Bake them @350 degree F for 20-25 minutes. Cooking time may vary depending on oven temperatures. Follow this link for tips on how to make perfect cupcakes.
If you have no Butterscotch chips/morsels on hand then they can be substituted with chocolate chips. Wow! such yummy ingredients, even writing about them is making me drool.
These treats were prepared for a bunch of young kids, so I decided to top them off with some whipped cream topping. But as per one’s taste, you can enjoy them as is or take it to the next level and use some homemade whipped cream topping. Not only does it sounds so delicious, it tastes amazing. I prepared two batches of these cupcakes and it was a heavenly treat for my hungry and sweaty boys gang. Teamed it with some flavored strawberry water and they just LOVED IT!!
