Blondie Cupcakes with Russian Buttercream

Makes 12 Prep Time 20 minutes   Cook Time 20 minutes   Rated:


We love our Russian Buttercream recipe and we also love brown butter! Have a look at the video on how EASY it is to make brown butter, then start using it in EVERYTHING. You won't regret it, but in the meantime, try it in these delicious, moist cupcakes. Perfect for entertaining, make minis to go a long way because a mouthful is just enough! Have fun.
