Thankfully I'm taking off for Australia this weekend to see my lovely family, so I'll at least get a bit of a break!
I recently made these tiramisu cupcakes, and since the Daring Bakers made a delicious tiramisu, I thought I'd share a spin on it. I'll try and revisit the challenge when I have more time, which will be soon, after March 13th when I finish my bike ride.
If you want to see real Tiramisu then check out what the other Daring Bakers got up to.
Tiramisu Cupcakes-makes 1 dozen cupcakes, or 3 dozen minis
1/2 tsp vanilla
150g self raising flour, sifted
Preheat the oven to 350f
Cream the butter and sugar together, beat in the eggs, one at a time, then the vanilla. Stir in 1/2 the flour, then the milk, then the rest of the flour, just until combined.
Scoop into cupcake wrappers and bake for 18-20 mins until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle. Cool.
50g brown sugar
Heat sugar in water until dissolved. Add kahlua and drizzle on cupcakes.
250g Marscapone cheese
1/4 cup (40g) icing sugar
1 tablespoon madeira/sherry
3/4 cup (180ml) heavy cream, whipped to medium peaks
Whisk together the cheese, sugar and madeira, then fold into the cream. Pipe onto cupcakes and shave chocolate onto them to finish
