What You Need:
1 1/4 cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 stick of melted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup cooled coffee
1 tsp vanilla
For the Frosting: Adapted from here
1 cup heavy cream
8 ounces mascarpone cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
Unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting
Let’s Get Baking
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon.
Whisk 1 stick of melted butter, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, sour cream, 2 eggs, vanilla, and cold coffee in a separate bowl. Whisk until smooth.
Then whisk in the flour mixture in thirds until completely combined.
For the Frosting:
With an electric mixer, whisk heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Keep an eye on it, you do not want to over mix.
In another bowl mix together marscapone and confectioner’s sugar until smooth. Then gently fold the whipped cream into the marscapone until completely incorporated.
? Character Cupcake
I’ll admit that I generally wanted to make Tiramisu cupcakes and this had been a request of my roommate’s. The only characters I could think of would be Lorelai Gilmore because of the coffee(and a lot of GG re-run watching) or Lady and the Tramp because they eat spaghetti. So leave a comment down below of a suggestion you think would fit this cupcake.
I make new cupcakes hopefully every Monday. It is the end of the semester, so I apologize now if I am a bit late on post for the next two weeks. I hope that if you make these, that you enjoy them!
