This valentine why not try making some cute heart shaped cupcakes for your loved ones? In my home we love white chocolate. There is something so lush, dreamy, creamy and smooth about white chocolate. Its pearly white appearance just seems to seduce and then the flavour of cream in white chocolate is fantabulous. I have tried making white chocolate cakes for sometime now and have failed many a time. This time also i decided to try out an experiment. I must tell you all this recipe of mine happened by chance and is not taken off any site on the internet. I actually did not expect it to turn out but what pleasantly surprised! I try to make as many “eggless” cakes and desserts possible to please my vegetarian followers. So for all of you who want to bake something nice for Valentine´s day… maybe you should try this?
INGREDIENTS FOR 6 CUPCAKES
5 heaped tablespoons of self raising flour or cake flour
1 tablespoon of sugar
100 ml of whipping cream
1 tablespoon of hot milk
120 grams of white chocolate
3/4 teaspoon on baking powder
a pinch of salt
Heat the oven to 180 degrees.
Chop 20 grams of the white chocolate into small bits. Melt the remaining 100 grams of white chocolate over a double boiler with the cream till well melted. Remove off the heat and let it cool a bit. Add the salt,sugar and the flour and mix well. Add the hot milk. Lastly add the baking powder. Mix till all is well mixed. The batter will be slightly thick. Put 1-2 tablespoons of batter in a silicon cupcake mould. Add a little bit of the chopped white chocolate and top with some more batter. Fill all the cupcake moulds this way. Put in the oven to bake for about 10-15 minutes or till done. Cool and unmould.
Which white chocolate did i use?
NITU DIDI TIP:
I did not use any flavouring for these cupcakes but you can put a few drops of essence of your choice such as : vanilla, butterscotch, orange, lemon, almond, etc etc. You can also add some ground cinnamon or cardamom to give it a different taste. You can also add some pure spanish saffron strands and rose essence to create a desi flavour!
