Prep Time; 1 hour
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 30 minutes
Servings: 20



Ingredients

Pecan Pie Filling

  • 3 cups raw pecans
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup real maple syrup


Bourbon Chocolate Cupcakes

  • 1 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup bourbon (see notes)
  • 1/2 cup strong black coffee or water
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup plain greek yogurt, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt


Butter Pecan Frosting

  • 2 sticks (16 tablespoons) salted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups powdered sugar


Instructions

  • To make the pecan pie filling. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. On the baking sheet, combine the pecans, 2 tablespoons bourbon, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and the cinnamon. Bake 8-10 minutes, until toasted. Sprinkle with sea salt. Roughly chop the pecans, reserving 22 whole pecans for topping.
  • In a large pot, whisk together the egg yolks, cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water until fully combined. Add 1/2 cup brown sugar, the maple syrup, and a pinch of salt. Set the pot over medium-high heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook, stirring continuously, until the mixture thickens, about 5-8 minutes. Remove from the heat. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a heat proof bowl. Stir in about 1 cup of the chopped pecans and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and chill in the fridge until set, about 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, make the cupcakes. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line 20-22 cupcake molds with paper liners.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer (or use a hand-held mixer) beat together the coconut oil, bourbon, coffee/water, eggs, yogurt, and sugar until combined. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until smooth and no lumps remain in the batter.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the prepared pan. Transfer to the oven and bake 18-22 minutes, until the tops are just set, and no longer wiggly in the center. Remove and let cool.
  • To make the frosting, melt together 4 tablespoons butter, the cream, and brown sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for one minute or until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and add to the bowl of a stand mixer. Place the bowl in the freezer (or fridge for longer) for 15-20 minutes or until cool to touch.
  • Grab the cooled butter mixture from the freezer and add the remaining 12 tablespoons of butter, 1 tablespoon vanilla, and the powdered sugar to the bowl. Beat together until well combined. Stir in 1/2-1 cup of the finely chopped toasted pecans.
  • Using a paring knife, cut a cone-shaped piece from the center of each cupcake. Fill the hole with the cooled pecan pie filling. Frost each cupcake and sprinkle with the remaining pecans. Top each with the reserved whole pecans.

Recipe Notes

For an Intense Bourbon Flavor: If you want a cupcake that really tastes like a good shot of bourbon, use 1 cup bourbon and omit the coffee. This is an especially delicious cupcake with strong hints of bourbon.

For a Mild Bourbon Flavor: For less bourbon, use 1/4 cup bourbon and 3/4 cup coffee/water.
