Mini cupcakes de Navidad

Por fin pude hacer otra receta de navidad, se ha pasado tan rápido el tiempo y pasan tantas cosas,ya saben como es esta época.
Bueno hice estos cupcakes y quedaron deliciosos
Me gustó que son pequeñitos y quedan muy buenos.
 Esta receta está adaptada de una de BBC/Food
Se pueden hacer con dias de anticipación porque se conservan muy bien.


250 grs. de harina con polvos de hornear
150 grs. de azúcar rubia
150 ml de aceite de girasol o vegetal
75 ml de leche
1 huevo
1 taza de mincemeat (es una preparación inglesa para pies o cupcakes) yo hice la receta de David lebovitz, super buena:)

Glacé o Icing
1 taza de azúcar glass
2 cucharaditas de leche
1/2 cucharadita jugo de limon
2 cucharaditas de jarabe de maiz(corn syrup)

En un bol pequeño mezclar el azucar con la leche hasta que esté cremoso y suave.Agregar el corn syrup y mezclar hasta que esté suave y brillante.


Precalentar el horno a 190°c.
Y preparar 24 mini cápsulas y colocar sobre los moldes de mini muffins.
Mezclar la harina y azúcar,hacer un hueco en el centro.
Mezclar el aceite,leche y huevo y agregar al centro donde está la harina y el azucar.

Agregar el mincemeat y los cranberries.
Mezclar suavemente.
Repartir la mezcla en los muffins y cocinar por unos 20 minutos o hasta que esten dorados.
Dejar enfriar en un rack.

Cuando estén listos pintar con el glass  y dejar enfriar:)
Yo los adorné con hojas de menta y mini mm rojos pero pueden ocupar otros dulces.
