Trio of Cupcakes


 
Daniel's Dish:
Entertaining at Home
with a Four-Star Chef

(Filipacchi Publishing)


For the Chocolate-Coffee Cupcakes with
Mocha Ganache and Mascarpone Cream

(makes 30 cupcakes)

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
powder (preferably Dutch process)
1/4 cup instant coffee powder
1 1/2 cups cake flour [such as Swans Down;
do NOT use self-rising flour]
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted
butter, at room temperature
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
3 cups heavy cream
1/3 cup coffee beans, crushed
8 ounces milk chocolate, finely chopped
2 cups mascarpone cheese
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted

To Make the Chocolate-Coffee Cupcakes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 30 standard muffin cups
with paper liners.
Combine the milk, cocoa, coffee and 1/4 cup water in a small sauce-
pan and bring to a boil, constantly whisking, until the cocoa and coffee
have dissolved. Let cool and pour into a liquid measure.

Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. In the bowl of a mixer,
cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla on medium speed until light and
fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients alternately with
the milk mixture in three batches, ending with the liquid. Fill each
muffin cup halfway with the batter. Bake 18 to 20 minutes until a
toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove the
cupcakes from the pan and let cool completely on a wire rack.

To Make the Mocha Ganache and Mascarpone Cream

Combine 1 cup of the heavy cream and coffee beans in a small sauce-
pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from the heat, cover,
and let infuse for 10 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a
clean saucepan and bring back to a boil. Put the chocolate in a medium
bowl and pour the hot cream over it, stirring slowly, until the ganache
is smooth. Spoon enough ganache over each cupcake to fill the liners
to the rim.
Using a whisk or in the bowl of a mixer fitted with a whisk attach-
ment, whip the remaining 2 cups of heavy cream to stiff peaks. Add
the mascarpone and confectioners’ sugar and whisk until smooth.
Spoon the mascarpone cream into a pastry bag fitted with a medium
round tip and pipe the cream on top of the ganache in a circle.

 

For the Lemon Cupcakes with
Mixed Berries and Ricotta Cream

(makes about 18 cupcakes)

1 1/2 cups cake flour [such as Swans Down;
do NOT use self-rising flour]
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter,
at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Finely grated zest of 2 lemons
3 large eggs, at room temperature
3/4 cup milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
1 cup mixed berries, such as strawberries,
raspberries, and blueberries

To Make the Lemon Cupcakes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 18 standard muffin cups with
paper liners.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In the bowl of a mixer,
cream the butter, sugar, vanilla and lemon zest on medium speed until
light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each
addition. On low speed, add the dry ingredients alternately with the
milk in three batches, ending with the liquid. Fill each muffin cup
three-quarters full with the batter. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes until
a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove the
cupcakes from the pan and let cool completely on a wire rack.

 

For the Mixed-Nut Cupcakes with
Grand Marnier Cream

(makes 24 cupcakes)

1 1/2 cups cake flour [such as Swans Down;
do NOT use self-rising flour]
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup whole almonds, blanched
1/4 cup hazelnuts, peeled
1/4 cup pistachios, shelled
1/4 cup macadamia nuts
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter,
at room temperature, 2 sticks of the
butter cut into small pieces
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 large eggs, at room temperature
3/4 cup milk
3 large egg whites
1/4 cup Grand Marnier or
other orange-flavored liqueur
Finely grated zest of 1/2 large orange

To Make the Mixed-Nut Cupcakes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 24 standard muffin cups with
paper liners.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Put 1 cup of the sugar,
the almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios and macadamia nuts into a food pro-
cessor and pulse until they are finely ground. [Be careful not to over-
process, or you will have nut butter.]
In the bowl of a mixer, cream 1 stick of the butter, the sugar-nut mixture,
and vanilla on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a
time, mixing well after each addition. On low speed, add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk in three batches, ending with the liquid. Fill each
muffin cup three-quarters full with the batter. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes
until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove the cupcakes from the pan and let cool completely on a wire rack.

To Make the Grand Marnier Cream

Put the egg whites into a clean mixer bowl. Whisking constantly,
gradually add the remaining 3/4 cup sugar. Place the bowl over a pot
of barely simmering water, making certain that the bottom of the bowl
does not touch the water. Stir until the mixture is hot. Fit the mixer
with the whisk attachment and whip the meringue until it holds tall,
stiff, glossy peaks. Switch to a paddle attachment. Gradually add the
cut-up butter to the meringue and beat until light and fluffy. Add the
liqueur and orange zest and beat to incorporate. Spoon the cream
 into a pastry bag fitted with a medium star tip and pipe the cream
on top of each cupcake.
