Answer #5

Sweet Potato Cupcakes with Toasted Marshmallow Frosting. :D

For the cupcakes: 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 tsp. baking powder ½ tsp. baking soda ¼ tsp. salt 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 16 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened 1½ cups sugar 3 large eggs 17 oz. sweet potato puree ½ tsp. vanilla extract

For the frosting: 8 large egg whites 2 cups sugar ½ tsp. cream of tartar 2 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions: Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line two cupcake pans with paper liners. In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; stir together with a fork and set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl after each addition. Mix in the sweet potatoes and vanilla extract, beating just until combined. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the dry ingredients, mixing just until incorporated.

Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cupcake liners. Bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the frosting, combine the egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar in the top of a double boiler. (Note: I just set my clean, dry mixer bowl over simmering water, to avoid dirtying two bowls.) Heat the mixture, whisking frequently, until it reaches 160° F with an instant-read thermometer. Transfer the mixture to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Whisk starting at low speed and gradually increasing to medium-high speed until stiff, glossy peaks form. Mix in the vanilla until combined. Frost cooled cupcakes as desired. Brown with a kitchen torch and garnish with a sprinkle of brown sugar, if desired.

Answer #19

I make something from scratch, well sort of :P It is 2 layers then the top is covered by a third batch of whip cream. Its easier then it looks

Things you need:

  1. a pack of lady fingers(enough for a 2 layer cake)
  2. 2 -4 cartons of unwhipped whipping cream(for cakes)
  3. sugar(as nec)
  4. baileys irish cream liquor
  5. table spoon of instant coffee
  6. milk in a bowl(like for cereal)
  7. fresh cranberries in a bag
  8. a mixer
  9. a tablespoon
  10. a pirex (glass rectangular one)
  11. a round deep bowl( for the whip cream mixture)& a smaller bowl for cereal(for cake mixture)
  12. Some boiled water as needed(for cranberries)
  13. Lots of room in the frig! :P

To make the whip cream: In a bowl pour cartons of whip cream & sugar as desired til it becomes fluffy & put in the frig to stay all puffy.

To make the Cranberry Sauce (It’s pretty easy when it is fresh & in a bag.)

  1. wash them well
  2. in a medium size pot boil some water & sugar with the cranberries according to the directions on the bag(you cant go wrong, & its amazing) Now allow to cool as directed.
  3. make sure it isnt turning into one big glob so stir it accordingly.

While that is cooling down work on the cake part. :P

To make the cake:

  1. open pack of lady fingers as necessary.
  2. in the small bowl pour some milk, 1 table spoon of instant coffee, and some baileys irish coffee liquor(as desired to your liking, dont need it if someone is a recovering alcoholic, just FYI for extra flavor) Mix well & taste that it is yummy! :P
  3. very lightly tap the lady fingers one by one into the mixture barely having it dunk. Now place each lady finger close to one another as if in a long line. (Should be about 2 lines with 1 or 2 on the side depending on how big your pirex is.)
  4. now smear half of the cranberry sauce over the cookies so it covers all. (leaving the same amount for the second layer!)
  5. Separate the whip cream into 3 parts, 1 part goes over the cranberry sauce. (you should have 2 more equal parts of whip cream left for 2 more layers)
  6. now repeat step 3, 4 & 5 (leaving just the whip cream left to top off the cake!)

Your done…just let it sit in the fridge for 24 hours or simply over night. Your guests will be begging you for the recipe bcz it is simply mmm, mmm, finger l!cking good!

*To design top of the cake only if desired…you can cut up fresh strawberries into halves or simply place fresh raspberries or blueberries and simply line them up like 3 inches apart if you dont like that beautiful white top of the cake. Some like a design on the top. Personally I leave it as is…has enough cranberry sauce in between layers & will yummy either way!

Please let me know what you thought of this! good luck.

Answer #20
