Look at these strawberry's! Are'nt they gourgous? If only you could taste them.They are so sweet! Sweet strawberry's like these you never find in a store. I only have about 30 but how delicious they are. You just can taste the sun in them.
So I will bake you some fresh cakes and make you a nice cup of tea to go with it.
Don't you love these dainty small cupcakes. I have baked them in my new muffin tin and I know I will use that tin often since these small muffins give people the opportunity to taste different kind of muffins witout being stuffed after the first once.
I have decorated them with a bit of pink buttercreme and a small fondant flower and a little bit of my precious strawberry's.
Are'nt they pretty?? To pretty to eat??
No, please take one or no take two and enjoy!
Here is that fresh cup of tea for you. Mmmm, how lovely!
You think I would forget? I know you folks. You always want the recepie. I had prepared for that. Here we go. It is in grams but I am sure you can put a converter program on it.
This amount is for about 36 dainty small muffins or for about 14 bigger onces.
250 grams of plain flour
2 heaped soupspoons of real Dutch cocao powder
2,5 teaspoons of bakingpowder
1 ts of baking soda
1 ts vanilla extract or a sachet of vanilla sugar
130 grams of fine caster sugar
100 grams of melted butter
250 gram of sour cream or plain yoghurt
75 ml of strong coffee
100 grams of butter or shortening ( you need a butter that gets hard when cold)
200 grams of icing sugar
a drop of food color if desired
few drops of vanilla extract or another flavour.
Mix the melted butter with the sugar and the vanilla extract. Mix well. Add the egg. Then you add the sour cream. Mix the flour with the sifted cacao powder, the baking powder and the baking soda and stirr in the butter/sugar mixture. Ad the cold coffee and stirr again.
The small muffins you bake 10 minutes and the bigger ones 20 to 25 minutes on 180° C.
For the buttercream simply mix the softened butter with the sifted icing sugar and the food coloring and vanilla
Let the muffins cool and decorate with a bit of the buttercream and a piece of strawberry and a sugared flower. I used a flower cut from a remnamt of fondant.
