As we ease ourselves into the cooler seasons why not indulge with bourbon chocolate cupcakes – a little excuse to keep warm. Learn how to make this simple recipe for the mature palate to enjoy.


  • 235ml Bourbon
  • 227g butter (unsalted)
  • 96g cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 256g all purpose flour
  • 7ml baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4ml salt
  • 400g sugar
  • 227g sour cream


    1. Preheat your oven to 180°C.
    2. Line a muffin tray with paper cups. Start creating the batter by bringing the Bourbon and butter to a simmer in a heavy large saucepan over medium heat.
    3. Take the measured out cocoa powder and add it to the mixture and whisk until the mixture is smooth.
    4. Lower down the temperature for the mixture to cool slightly.
    5. Combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking soda in a mixing bowl.
    6. Beat the eggs with the sour cream in a separate bowl.
    7. Add the bourbon-chocolate mixture and combine with the egg mixture.
    8. Once the above step is mixed well, add in the flour mixture and beat on a slow speed.
    9. Fold in the batter mixture in a figure eight motion using a spatula.
    10. Once all mixed, add evenly into the cupcake liners.
    11. Place into the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes. You can check when ready by poking a toothpick into the cupcake. If the toothpick comes out clean they are ready to take out of the oven.
    12. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before eating.
