Since I don't have to much time, with the holiday orders starting to flow in, I even have an order from Rosh Pina can you believe it. I am so honored that even in the most northern part of Israel they like my cupcakes!! I don't post as much as I like.
But I'll try to write an interesting post with a very nice cupcake recipe for the holiday's
honey cake cupcakes
- 1/4 cup softened butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup honey
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
200 gram butter room temp. Honey according how strong you like the taste to be, 1 tsp vanilla essence
175 gram confectioners sugar
10 ml milk at room temp.
To make the cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 170°C. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake papers.
In a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in honey, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix into the batter until just blended. Scoop the batter into the cups evenly.
Cupcakes are ready when the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 20 minutes.
To make the buttercream frosting
1. In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter until fluffy and white for about 3 min.
2. add confectioners sugar (spoon by spoon and scrape the sides of the mixer bowl often), milk, honey and vanilla essence and mix for about 5-7 minutes at medium speed.
3. When the cupcakes are totally cooled down you can start decorating your cupcakes with the butter cream.
You can top the honey cake cupcakes with some toasted walnuts.
