Mountain Dew Cupcakes


Today I felt like baking, I am not really a big sweets baker. I don't have the patience to frost and decorate. But today was different. I have been eyeing this recipe for a few months now. Just for the sheer fact that it has my favorite soda in them. So we gave them a whirl. They have a lite Mtn Dew flavor, and a nice citrus flavor.

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups Mountain Dew
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
