Riesling Cupcakes with Pear Mascarpone Frosting (Gluten-Free Cupcakes)
The flavor of this cupcake is hard to place. It's different and unexpected. Once I tell you that it's a Riesling cupcake, it all makes sense. You notice the familiar floral notes and mild sweetness that met you that last time that you sipped a glass of Riesling wine. The Riesling cupcake is finished with a pear mascarpone frosting and heavily dusted with finely chopped walnuts, creating a wine and cheese plate experience.
I've made cupcakes containing wine before - mulled wine cupcakes, wine and cheese cupcakes, malva pudding cupcakes made from a dessert wine, and charoset cupcakes that contain a sweet Kosher for Passover wine. But, I've never before achieved a cupcake that tasted just like a glass of wine.
There's a trick.
