I was recently invited to go to Italy courtesy of the beautiful Zonin Family, owners of the very best wineries in Italy!  How do I know!  I tried the wines – and they were truly beautiful!  My favourite being the Zonin Prosecco which is available in Australia now – from your local bottlo.  And I urge you to try it – it is sweet, but not too sweet.  Light, refreshing, bubbly and the perfect drink for the hot weather in Australia.

But you know what, I like to experiment.  I had seen recipes in the past for champagne cakes, and yes, they were nice.  But I find champagne very dry.  The sweetness in the Zonin Prosecco makes these cupcakes just amazing.  It gives them a nice lightness, a nice sweetness, and makes for a cupcake that is decadent and delicious – perfect for a dinner party!

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10-inch round cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until very light and fluffy. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together, and then blend into creamed mixture alternately with champagne.
  3. In a large clean bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into batter to lighten it, then fold in remaining egg whites. Pour into prepared pan.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
