Cream brulée cupcakes





A long time ago  I didn't cupcakes and I dont know why. In any case when I found this recipe I loved.:))
They were soft, fluffy and very light, I recommend anyway.
With a cup of tea or coffe are perfect!

6 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg 
4 yolks
60 grams butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
pinch of salt

sugar for topping

Line cupcake pan with liners. set aside.
In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
In other bowl cream together butter and sugar with and alectric mixer until light and fluffy.
Add eggs one ar a time, mixing until incorporated, add vanilla.
Add flour mixture and buttermilk (or greek yogurt) begining and ending with flour, mixing until just combined after each addition.Scrape down sides and bottom of the bowl making sure there are no streaks of flour.

Divide batter evenly among liners, filling each about three quarters full.
Bake until tops spring back when touched, about 20 minutes, then take cupcakes out of the pan and cool the rest of the way on a wire rack.

Pastry cream

In a medium sized bowl dissolve the cornstarch in 1/2 cup of milk and set aside.
Combine the rest of the milk with sugar in a small sauce pan over medium high and bring to a boil.
Whisk egg and yolks into the milk/cornstarch mixture until smooth.
Temper the eggs by pouring 1/3 of the boiling milk into the egg mixture in a steadt stream with one hand, while gently stirring with the other hand. When mixed together add the milk/eggs back to the saucepan with the rest of milk.
Boil one minute stirring constantly until mixture is thick, bubbly and able to coat the back of a wooden spoon.

Remove from heat and whisk in butter and vanilla.
Transfer to a cold container and chill completely before using in the cupcakes.

To assemble
Using a paring knifeto make a cone shaped hole in the center of each cupcake.
Use a spoon to fill and frost each cupcake with pastry cream.
When are ready sprinkle the sugar generously over every inch of the pastry cream (A little more sugar than you think is neede to create that crispy layer) Use a kitchen torch to caramelze the sugar until golden brown and melted.

Note : The pastry cream can be made in advance and refrigerate up until are ready to use.




Happy Mother's Day to all of you !

  30. Great flavor to have in a cupcake! I can see why these would convert you. BTW, I made your ricotta kuchen with (about a cup) of blueberries for Mother's Day. It was a success (all gone!) though I think I should have increased the cooking time a bit more with the (actually frozen) berries. Happy belated Mother's Day!

      Im sooo happy you made eicotta Kuchen and with blueberries sound amazing and delicious!
      Yes to the next maybe you have to let a little more at oven, happens with frozen berries!
      Thanks !:)
