Mountain Dew Cupcakes By cupcake girl on December 5th, 2007 . Filed under: Recipes .

I originally came up with this recipe during the summer. But, I just made them again for my husband to take to work. They have become a favorite of my husband, who is a major Dew junkie. Any Dew or citrus lover will think they rock!

Mountain Dew Cupcakes

1 cup butter (2 sticks) 2 cups sugar 4 large eggs 3/4 cup Mountain Dew 1/4 cup of lemon and lime juice (juice from 1 lemon and 1 lime) zest from 1 lemon and 2 limes (separate into 2 piles, one for buttercream) 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon extract 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Beat butter on medium for 30 seconds. 2. Add sugar and lemon, lime zest. Beat on medium-high until light and fluffy. 3. Add eggs one at a time, Scrape sides of bowl in between additions 4. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Add to mixer bowl. Turn on low for 5 seconds. 5. Add the Mountain Dew, lemon/lime juice, and lemon extract . Mix to combine. 5. Scoop into cupcake papers about two-thirds full. 6. Bake for 18-20 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean.

Mountain Dew Buttercream

1 cup butter (2 sticks) 4-5 cups powdered sugar 2 tablespoons Mountain Dew Juices from half of 1 lemon and half of 1 lime. Lemon and lime zest (rest of zest from cupcake recipe. Or zest from half of 1 lemon and 1 whole lime) 1 teaspoon lemon extract neon green food coloring (yellow and blue if you dont have green)

1. Sift powdered sugar into a bowl or onto parchment 2. Beat butter at medium-high speed until creamy 3. Add half of the sugar, turn mixer on low for 5 seconds. 4. Add the Mountain Dew, zest, and lemon extract . Beat until combined. 5. Add food coloring to the desired color. 6. Gradually add remaining sugar until you get to the consistency and sweetness you like.
