Butterscotch Cupcakes with Butterscotch Buttercream Frosting

One of my husbands favorite flavors is butterscotch, so I wanted to incorporate that into a cupcake.  I can only go so long before it’s time to make cupcakes.  You’ve just gotta love a cupcake, they make me smile.  Looking at my cupcakes, you might say they are a little top-heavy.  Hey, you only live once.

                       
Butterscotch Cupcakes:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1½ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup butterscotch chips, melted

Preheat oven to 350°.  Line a 12 cupcake pan with paper liners.  With electric mixer in large bowl, cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each.  In separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add flour mixture alternately with milk and vanilla to creamed mixture, beating until smooth and light. Microwave butterscotch chips at 50% power until just barely melted.  Mix into cake batter.  Scoop batter into muffin cups distributing evenly.  Bake for 22-25 minutes or until center is set.  Cool in pan about 10 minutes, remove and finish cooling on rack.  Cool completely before frosting.

Butterscotch Buttercream Frosting:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup butterscotch chips, melted and cooled slightly
3½ cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3-4 Tbl milk

Whip all ingredients together with electric mixer to frosting consistency.  Frost cupcakes and garnish with chopped pecans and butterscotch chips.
