Vanilla cupcakes and rose buds (and aHappy Birthday to me)












I'm not much to celebrate my birthday, especially after my twins, (Gerardo and Esperanza) arrived (20 years ago) and have a few days apart, they were born on June 13.

But  always I liked to prepare something, a cake or dessert or as this time some cupcakes.

I had this idea long ago about cupcakes and decorate with dried rose buds, but it was not until this past summer I can made  some dried roses buttons.
 I also found a very good recipe.

I brought these cupcakes to share with you  to celebrate the gift of life.
If you have can be made with buttons of fresh roses, beautiful!

I love roses:)

Note:
If you want dry some rose buds I find a nice site here
Now I know is the same method I use:)






Ingredients
(8 cupcakes)

100 grams all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
80 grams blanched  ground almonds 
120 grams butter
2 eggs
125 grams sugar
110 ml  greek yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

frosting
200 grams cream cheese
 1 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoon powdered sugar
dried or fresh roses and petals for garnish

Method

Remove all foods from fridge earlier in order to be room temperature.
Prepare a baking sheet for muffins and fill the muffins tray  with paper baskets.Start the oven to heat at 180°c (350 F)

Melt the butter over low heat and allow to cool.
With a wire whisk eggs, sugar, yogurt and vanilla.
In other bowl put the flour, salt, almonds and baking powder.
Finally add the egg mixture to the flour mixtures and stir slowly with a wooden spoon and stir only to mix the ingredients.

Fill the cupcakes cases almost to the top.
Bake about 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the dough comes out dry. Remove from the oven, leave for a few minutes in the mold and remove and leave cool completely.

Frosting

Whipp the heavy cream. In another bowl mixt the sugar and cream cheese and stir well.
Add the whipped cream and whisk a couple of times with a home blender until mixture becomes thick.
Decorate with pink rose buds or fresh little roses.

Cupcakes de vainilla












No celebro demasiado para mi Cumpleaños, sobre todo que los mellizos estan de cumpleaños tan cerca (13 de Junio) asi que hago algo pequeño como una torta, un postre o como estos cupcakes.

Tenía esta idea hace mucho tiempo de adornar con botones de rosas secas (pueden ser frescas pero en esta fecha es dificil encontrar) Y este año para el verano fui guardando y secando botones de rosas, los guardé para hacer algo.
Y me tincó hacer estos cupcakes.
quedaron muy buenos.


Ingredientes

(8 cupcakes)

100 gramos harina sin polvos
1 cucharadita polvos de hornear
1 pizca de sal
80 gramos de almendras peladas y molidas
120 gramos de mantequilla
2 huevos
125 gramos de azúcar
110 ml yogurt griego o natural
1 cucharadita de vainilla

Decoración

200 gramos de queso crema
1 taza de crema para batir
3 cucharadas de azúcar en polvo
botones de rosas frescos o secos (o pepitas de granadas)

Preparación

Retirar antes todo lo del refrigerador para que esté a temperatura ambiente.
