Top these unique cupcakes with Horchata Frosting ***NOTE: In the list of ingredients, I had to list the Horchata as "rice milk" since recipezaar does not recognize horchata as a valid ingredient.
- beat together the sugar and the butter until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
- sift flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon together.
- mix the horchata and vanilla together.
- add the flour mixture and horchata mixture to the butter/sugar in 3 parts alternating between flour and horchata and beating well after each addition.
- in a clean mixer bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
- fold egg whites into cake batter until incorporated.
- scoop batter into the prepared cupcake pans.
- bake in the 350 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
