How Do I Bake With Weed?
I wish it was as simple as grinding up your favorite strain of cannabis and sprinkling it in – but it’s not.
We have to take a few steps first, so that you can get the very best out of your weed and enjoy all of the benefits.
If you don’t decarb your weed, you’re doing yourself an injustice.
Decarboxylating basically means heating your weed – but the act of doing so converts and activates cannabinoids to elicit a high.
Failing to decarb means you’ll have a weak edible, and that would just suck!
The Decarboxylation Process
The next step is making your delicious and oh-so-versatile cannabutter. Mmm.. it’s so tasty and works in just about everything! I LOVE cannabutter!
Here’s how you make it, and please don’t skip this step because you’ll need it to make Snickerdoodle Cannabis Cupcakes, and so many other yummy weed edible recipes.
How To Make Cannabutter
Servings: 1 Cup
- 1/4 to 1/2 Ounce Cannabis
- 1 cup Butter
Decarboxylate your weed by spreading your cannabis evenly on an oven tray And coat with aluminum foil.
Place in the oven on 240F/115C for 25 till 45 minutes, and then let it cool.
Grind your dry cannabis or chop it till fine.
Place the cannabis in a strong mason jar, add butter and (1 tsp of sunflower lecithin)(optional)
Place your closed jar in cold water and let it come to a boil, Boil for 2 to 3 hours.
Strain your butter through a cheesecloth.
Now you can use the Cannabis Butter (Cannabutter)

Mixer or electric beater
mixing bowls, measuring cups, and measuring spoons
muffin tin/tray – silicone
- 1 2/3 cup flour all purpose
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup cannabutter
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
- 3 tsp ground cinnamon
Cinnamon Swirl Frosting
- 1 cup cannabutter
- 4 cups confectioners sugar
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 3 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the cannabutter in the microwave. Whisk in 1 cup of sugar. The mixture will be gritty. Stir in egg, sour cream, milk, and vanilla extract until combined. Slowly mix in dry ingredients until no lumps remain. Note: The batter will be thick.
In a small bowl, mix the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon together. Set aside.
Spoon 2 tbsp of your batter into the cups, then 1 tsp of the cinnamon sugar mixture you saved in the small bowl, then layer again with 2 tbsp approx of the batter so that each cup is approximately 3/4 full. Top each cupcake with 1 more teaspoon of the cinnamon-sugar.
Bake the cupcakes for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
ALWAYS: Allow to cool completely before frosting.
With a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle or whisk attachment, beat cannabutter on high speed until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Add confectioners’ sugar, cream, and vanilla extract. Beat 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon into the frosting. Use the rest to sprinkl on top or simply make some more cinnamon sugar mix and sprinkle it al over!
Pipe onto cupcakes using a piping bag, or a ziplock sandwich bag with a small hole cut in the bottom corner. Enjoy!
