These sweet cakes taste just like the real thing! A fun variation of a plain cupcake. These taste great topped with whipped cream or a buttercream frosting.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

  • Beat butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until the butter is light and smooth, 2 to 3 minutes; beat in sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy, at least 5 more minutes.

  • Beat in egg yolks one at a time, mixing until each yolk is just combined before adding the next; mix in sour cream and vanilla and almond extracts.

  • Sift flour in a separate bowl with baking powder and salt.

  • Stir flour mixture into the liquid ingredients in thirds, alternating with Irish cream liqueur, until the batter is smooth.

  • Pour batter into the lined muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cupcakes are golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes.
