Rum and raisins Cupcakes







These Rum and raisins Cupcakes were a nice and yumm surprise, really the rum is something specially and the raisins are soaked in rum, I adapted this recipe from  one of my favorites site goodtoknow.com  (from Victoria Thread) from England.




INGREDIENTS (10 cupcakes)




200 g caster sugar
150 g. butter
200 g. all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
40 g cornflour
3 medium eggs
30 ml milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
150 g. raisins
3 tablespoon dark rum

For the cream topping

 300 ml double cream
3 tbsp icing sugar

Method

The night before, chop up the raisins into chunks, place them in a bowl with the dark rum and leave to soak over night.

.Preheat your oven to 170°C/ and place 10 cases in a muffin tin.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, cornflour and cinnamon.
Beat the sugar and butter with the vanilla essence until light and fluffy (about 5 minutes).

Add 1 egg, 1 third of the sifted flour mix and a splash of milk and beat until just combined.
 Repeat until all the ingredients are combined.
 Fold in the rum-soaked raisins, keeping 30g of raisins and a bit of juice back to decorate.

Divide the batter between the cases and bake for 20-25 minutes depending on your oven.
Cool in the tins for 10 minutes before moving the cakes to a wire cooling rack.
To make the cream topping
    Add the cream and icing sugar to a large mixing bowl, then beat for 2 minutes with an electric whisk until smooth and firm enough to pipe. Don't whisk too long or the cream will be too thick to pipe and look lumpy.
Piping a swirl
Attach the nozzle to the piping bag and place in a tall glass, pulling the bag down around the glass. Fill the bag 2/3 full with the cream topping and twist at the top of the bag to close.

To pipe a swirl, apply pressure to the top of the bag and pipe a star shape in the middle of the cake. Release the pressure and pull up quickly.

Then, start at the outside edge of the cake and pipe around the star and build up into a swirl. When you reach the end of the swirl press down slightly, release the pressure and pull up quickly.
Add the chopped raisins and a bit of juice to the tops to decorate.

    Para el topping
    300 ml de crema o nata para batir
    3 cucharadas de azúcar glass
    Preparación
    La noche anterior remojar las pasas en ron.
    Al otro día precalentar el horno a 170 °c y preparar en un molde de muffins los moldes de papel para los cupcakes (10)
    Mezclar juntos la harina, polvos de hornear,maizena y canela.Aparte batir la mantequilla con la esencia de vainilla hasta que esté suave y cremosa.
    A esta mezcla agregar un huevo, un tercio de la mezcla de harina y un poco de leche, unir bien esta mezcla y continuar agregando los otros huevos y el resto de la harina.
    Luego agregar las pasa con ron (reservar unas pocas para adornar)y un poco de jugo de ron para decorar, repartir la mezcla en los moldes de papel y llevar a horno por 20 a 25 minutos hasta que esten ligramente dorados.
