Hefeweizen (Wheat Beer) Cupcakes

I’m in puppy love with my Hefeweizen cupcakes.  Maybe it’s because I’ve been on a quest to find the Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake and the past 15 or so cupcake recipes I’ve made have been some variety of vanilla, or maybe these Hefeweizen cupcakes really are just that good.  If you are a beer fan (I’m talking about the kind of person who drinks beer for the taste, not chugs for the buzz), and you like wheat beer, you will truly appreciate this cupcake.  With beer in both the cupcake and the glaze, these cupcakes have a noticeable beer flavor.  The cupcakes also contain a touch of lemon as though you squeezed some into your bottle.

Beer cupcakes are typically heavy and manly.  The beer cupcakes I’ve created in the past are no exception.  I’ve done a beer cheese cupcake with bacon cheddar frosting (trust me on this one – it is a fan favorite), chocolate stout cupcakes, and Trappist cupcakes with a Trappist-style cheese.  Unlike those, these Hefeweizen cupcakes are beer cupcakes for the summer.  They are moist, fresh-tasting, and just the snack to tide you over while you’re waiting for your burgers to finish on the grill.

    Mmmmmm, these sound AWESOME! I’m a big fan of Shiner Hefeweizen, so the next time I get my hands on some, I’m making these puppies!

    It’s crazy that you just posted this; I met a woman yesterday who started “The Cupcake Brewery” in Raleigh, NC! She was telling me all about her cupcakes made with beer, and I was really intrigued. Excited to try your recipe and tell her about it :)

    I feel so betrayed. First time CupcakeProject has steered me wrong. Made two batches, thinking that maybe I made the first ona wrong… Consistency was weird. Dense and kind of pasty. Chocolate Stout cupcakes were way more successful and num.

    Victoria – :( Sorry it didn’t work out for you. Loved them when I made them.

    Hmmm, I wonder what this would taste like with a berry wheat… I foresee some experimentation in my future! Thank you for the idea!
