Browned Butter Cupcakes

I paired these with the Chocolate Buttercream listed below for a BBQ this weekend.
They were a hit!
I would say they are a more flavorful take on your average white cake cupcake, not too different but just enough.

1C butter
2.5 C flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2C sugar
4 eggs, room temp
1C milk, warmed in microwave on high for 20 sec
1 tsp vanilla

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter over medium heat in a pan with tall(ish) sides. Stir constantly until the foaming subsides and dark brown flecks start to appear. Continue cooking on medium heat until butter is brown and smells nutty.
  3. Remove butter from heat and allow to cool for ~10 minutes.
  4. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in bowl and set aside.
  5. In mixing bowl beat sugar & eggs until thickened.
  6. Add milk, butter, and vanilla to mixing bowl until combined.
  7. Add flour mixture a little bit at a time until well mixed.
  8. Fill cupcake liners about 2/3 full.
  9. Bake for ~20 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Enjoy!
