Christmas cupcakes with honey and spices






This recipe of Christmas cake with honey and spices comes from Germany many years ago, from Mrs.Thelma Stange Soto who in turn inherited it from her friend and her mother friend Ema Konrad.
(I thanks so much to Erika Klein that has done a wonderful job compiling these  vintage recipes)
Times ago  I mentioned that many of our pastry recipes come  from Germany around 1800 when many German families arrived in southern Chile.
This is the story of this recipe and  I am grateful because someone share this  recipe  after so long I can make and share.
It can be done in a loaf bread mold or small molds.
I think they are  absolutely delicious.










Ingredients
(12 cakes)


3 cups  all purpose flour
1 cup of honey
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of canola oil
or sunflower oil
2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of  ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 orange( the zest )

Glaze

1 white egg
5 or 6 tablespoons icing sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
holiday sprinkles

Method


In a saucepan place   honey and sugar.
Warm the mixture over low or low heat, stirring and go to prevent sticking.
Add cinnamon and ground cloves.
Stir until everything is together and remove from heat.
Add orange zest to the mixture of honey.
Stir and let stand for a while.
Aside in a bowl mix together the flour with the baking soda.
And then  add milk and honey mix, and finally the oil.
Beat with wooden spoon until all is combined.

It should be smooth and homogeneous.

 Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners and with a rubber spatula or large spoon filling the cups.

Preheat oven to 180 ° C and bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until they are firm and golden.
Remove and let cool.


For the glaze


In a bowl beat the egg white with icing sugar add the lemon juice, stir with wooden spoon until they have the consistency needed.
Decorate with some holiday sprinkles

Cakes de miel para Navidad









Esta deliciosa receta de cakes con miel y especias la tenía guardada del año pasado
Viene de muchos años atrás cuando los alemanes llegaron al sur y fueron dejando como herencia muchas recetas que se han pasado de generación en generación.
Siempre me pareció encantadora  pero no alcanzé  a hacerla el año pasado.
Pero este año dije, como sea la hago y aquí está.
Es una receta de la Sra.  Thelma Stange Soto, que la heredó de una mamá de su amiga Ema Konrad, que a su vez la heredó de su suegra.
Así eran las recetas, se pasaban de generación en generación.
De diferentes países, mi mamá hace una empanada española que es absolutamente de Asturias que a su vez viene de su mamá que la trajo de España.
Agradezco a Erika Klein que está haciendo esta recopilación de recetas alemanas en el sur.
Se conservó la receta tal cual. No cambié casi nada, quería hacerla igual que hace 100 años  por amor  a todos los que conservaron la receta.
El resultado fantástico, delicioso y la miel la de un color dorado precioso.
Se puede hacer en un molde alargado como de pan, o como yo la hice en forma de cupcakes.

Ingredientes
(12 cupcakes o 1 molde alargado)

3 tazas de harina sin polvos de hornear
1 taza de miel
1 taza de leche
1 /2 taza de azúcar
1/2 taza de aceite   de maravilla u otro
2 cucharaditas de bicarbonato
1 cucharadita canela molida
1/2 cucharadita clavo de olor molido
la ralladura de una naranja(la cáscara)

Glacé
1 clara de huevo
5 a 6 cucharadas de azúcar glass
1 cucharadita de jugo de limón
mostacillas de colores para espolvorear


Preparación

En una ollita colocar la miel y el azúcar a fuego suave (la miel debe estar blanda se puede calentar unos minutos en microondas)
Calentar la miel revolviendo siempre para que no se pegue la mezcla en la olla (mejor si es de teflón)
Agregar la canela en polvo y el clavo de olor, revolver y apagar el fuego. Agregar la ralladura de naranja y dejar reposar.
En otro bol mezclar la harina y el bicarbonato, entonces agregar la leche mezclando de a poco y a continuación agregar la mezcla de miel y especias.  Finalmente agregar el aceite revolver todo bien con una cuchara de palo hasta que tenga una consistencia suave y cremosa.
Preparar moldes de muffins con capsulas de papel (12) repartir la mezcla en estos moldes.

Precalentar el horno a 180°c
Hornear durante unos 40 a 45 minutos o hasta que estén firmes y dorados.

Retirar y dejar enfriar.

Glacé

En un bol pequeños batir la clara de huevo y agregar el azúcar en polvo, agregar el jugo de limón, batir un rato hasta que se tenga la consistencia deseada, si se quiere más espesa se puede agregar una cucharada más de azúcar.
Espolvorear con mostacillas de colores.
