The Shamrock shake is only available for a limited time at McDonald's restaurants and it's arguably one of the most delicious milkshakes ever to be created. By far the best thing on the menu at McDonald's this month. (Just my humble opinion of course.)
Turns out I wasn't the first to come up with the idea for a Shamrock Shake cupcake. BrownEyedBaker.com has a great recipe on her website that I used as inspiration for my very own Shamrock shake cupcake.
¾ cup + 2 tablespoons cake flour
½ cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
¾ cup + 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1¼ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature, cut into ½-inch cubes
½ cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon mint extract
6 drops green food coloring
Combine cake flour, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in bowl of standing mixer. Add butter and beat with flat beater until coarse crumbs form.
Bake 25 minutes at 350. (For jumbo size cupcakes.)
