San Valentine's cupcakes










This is dedicated to all  of you I love......

Really I never made before some for Valentin days, but this year someone asked me a Valentine recipe for a Site where I share  some  recipes, Comunidad Gourmet cuchareando so here is the recipe.
Is adapted from Martha Stewart recipes.




Ingredients (12 cupcakes)

2 cups all-purpose flour


1  1/2  teaspoon baking powder


 1/2 teaspoon salt

120 grs unsalted butter, cut into pieces


250 grs unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped


1 1/2 cups sugar


3 large eggs, room temperature


1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


Butter cream frosting


3 cups confectioners' sugar


1 cup butter


1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1 to 2 tablespoons whipping cream

In a standing mixer fitted with a whisk, mix together sugar and butter. Mix on low speed until well blended and then increase speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes.
Add vanilla and cream and continue to beat on medium speed for 1 minute more, adding more cream if needed for spreading consistency.


You can use marhmallows cream too.


Method


1.Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners.
2.Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Place butter and chocolate in a heatproof mixer bowl set over a pot of simmering water, stirring until chocolate melts.


3.Attach bowl to mixer, add sugar, and whisk on medium-high speed until smooth, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, then vanilla. Reduce speed to low, and add flour mixture.

4.Divide batter among muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full.  Bake until set but still soft, about 20 minutes. Let cool in tins and pan on wire racks.


•Frost cupcakes with buttercream.

Cupcakes para San Valentín









La verdad es que nunca hago nada para San Valentín. Pero este año de una Comunidad Gourmet en que comparto recetas me pidieron algo para San valentín. El sitio se llama Comunidad Gourmet cuchareando les dejo el link para que visiten esta Comunidad Gourmet que tiene interesantes recetas.
Esta receta está adaptada del sitio de recetas de Martha Stewart.


Ingredientes
 (12 cupcakes)

2 tazas de harina normal
1 1/2 cucharadita de polvos de hornear
1/2 cucharadita de sal
120 grs, mantequilla sin sal  en trozos
250 grs. de chocolate de repostería para derretir
(Costa o Ambrosoli)
1 1/2 taza de azúcar
3 huevos a temperatura normal
1 cucharadita de extracto de vainilla

Crema para cubrir

3 tazas de azúcar impalpable o azúcar flor
1 taza de mantequilla
1 cucharadita extracto de vainilla
1 a dos cucharadas de crema para batir

Preparación

Mezclar con la batidora a velocidad media la mantequilla con el azúcar, batir por unos 3 min utos.
Agregar la vainilla y la crema. Batir nuevamente hasta tener la consistencia deseada.

Otro método es usar una crema de Marhsmallows que viene lista en el Líder y en el Jumbo. (que fue la que usé) solo le puse un poco a cada uno y le agregué unas gotas de colorante especial del que se usa para las galletas.
Los corazones de chocolate fue muy simple, derretí el chocolate a baño maría (el mismo de la receta) y lo puse en una cubeteras en forma de corazón (tambien venden moldes) .Se espera que se solidifiquen y se sacan con cuidado.

Preparación cupcakes

1.Precalentar el horno a 180° c, preparar una bandeja para muffins de 12 y colocarle capsulas de papel.
En un bol unir la harina, sal  y polvos de hornear.
Aparte  en un bol metálico u olla colocar el chocolate en trozos y la mantequilla y derretir a baño maría.
Cuando tenga una consistencia cremosa revolver un poco con una cuchara de palo.
Colocar la mezcla de chocolate y mantequilla en un bol, agregar el azúcar y la vainilla.
Agregar los huevos de a uno.Unir bien. Finalmente agregar la mezcla de harina. Batir por unos tres minutos. Cuando la mezcla esté cremosa y espesa. Repartir en las capsulas de papel.
Llevar a horno por unos 20 minutos hasta que esten firmes pero suaves.
dejar enfriar la bandeja de muffins antes de proceder a decorar según el método que se elija.
