New Monday, new week and finally new blog entry and new recipe: Monday Munchies is back!
Quite a while back I shared the recipe of a Cottage Cheese Tiramisu that me and my mum found at our usual cooking magazine Cocina Fácil (Easy Cooking) that we modified a bit, and that everyone in the family totally adores!
So it was only natural that I wanted to turn that recipe into cupcakes!
Piwi's Tiramisu Cupcakes
I opted for a basic vegan vanilla recipe for the base cupcake, since it'd be the most similar to the lady fingers taste.
- 1 cup soy milk
- Pinch tumeric powder
- 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 TBS constarch
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup sunflower oil
- 3/4 cup granulated/brown sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
Pre-heat oven at 350ºF/180ºC. Line tin with papers. Beat tumeric powder with milk, cook stirring often in medium-low heat till the milk starts simmering, about 2 to 3 minutes, when milk has yellow hue, remove from heat and let cool for about 5 minutes.
Add vinegar to milk and whisk to curdle. Beat oil, sugar, extract and milk till foamy. Sift in flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix until no large lump remains. Fill liners about 2/3. Bake 20 to 22 minutes.
Let the cupcakes cool for about 5 minutes in the tin, and then move them to a cooling rack to let them cool completely. Meanwhile make the chicory coffe and the cottage cheese cream.
Cottage Cheese Cream
- 500 grams goat's cottage cheese
- 100 grams icing sugar
- 4 egg whites
- pinch of salt and drops lemon juice
Mix the goat's cheese with half the sugar till creamy. Beat egg whites on high speed with the salt and lemon juice, when soft peaks start forming add the rest of the icing sugar. Beat well, fold in with the cheese cream. Refrigerate till needed.
To assemble, make a hole in the cupcakes with an apple corer, soak the cupcakes with the chicory coffee (don't be shy!) and fill in with the cheese cream. Top with the cake topper and then pipe a dollop of cream. Sprinkle with Nesquik! Enjoy!
These were very much liked by my nephews and my co-workers, but on my first try, I was a bit sparse with the coffe soaking, so I'll be more indulgent next time!
