Lets celebrate my first blog post with these Raspberry Champagne Cupcakes.
I am going to be honest with you. Although I have been baking for many years I have never made cake from scratch; shocking, I know. It’s so simple to make cupcakes from scratch. There is no reason to ever use boxed cake mix again.

These cupcakes are perfectly moist, filled with raspberry filling, and topped with buttery raspberry frosting. What an elegant treat.
Using the whisk attachment on your mixer, whisk the butter and sugar for about three minutes
Add the eggs and whisk until nice and fluffy
Add half of the dry ingredients, with your mixer set at its lowest speed whisk for one minute
Add the milk in at this point followed by the other half of the dry ingredients. Whisk for three minutes
Add the champagne and whisk for five minutes, until completely smooth
Fill each cupcake liner with 1/4 cup of the batter
Place the cupcakes into your preheated oven for approx. 18-25 minutes. You will know when the cupcakes are done by inserting a toothpick into the cupcake and pulling it out, if the toothpick is clean then they are done.
Let the cupcakes cool outside of the oven for just a few minutes and then go ahead and place them on a cooling rack where they will remain to completely cool; for at least an hour
Add the jam to a piping bag with a #230 tip
Insert tip into each cupcake, moving the tip in a circular motion to make room for the jam
Pipe a quarter sized amount into each cupcake
