Three Musketeers / Milky Way cupcakes
There are few flavours which reminds me childhood. One of them is Milky Way bar. And here's a problem, because in Europe Milky Way looks like US Three Muskeeters. Nice Wikipedia has it explained here.
And what's better, than a favourite bar? Cupcakes with it!
As it's my experimental recipe (it was well done experiment!), it's a recipe for 6 cupcakes. You know, if something went wrong...
2/3 cup flour
3 ounces Three Muskeeters bars, cut into pieces
1/3 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 ounces butter + 2 tablespoons
Mix 1 and 1/2 ounces butter with sugar. Then add egg. Set aside.
Melt bars with 2 tablespoons butter. Stir all the time, because it will be getting sticky. Now you can see, how much sugar is in our lovely bars. :) Before the mixture will start getting firm, gradually mix it with butter and egg. Now it's time to add flour, baking soda, baking powder and buttermilk. But don't add everything at one time! Divide it into portions. And better is to end with a flour, than with buttermilk. Mix it one more time and put batter into muffin cups which are waiting unpatiently.
Bake for about 20 minutes in 350 degrees F/180 degrees C.
So now it's time for frosting. The best part of these cupcakes!
1 1/2 ounces Three Muskeeters bars, cut
2/3 cup milk powder
4 tablespoons icing sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup cream (from 12 to about 30% fat)
Heat cream with butter. Add bars and stir until everything comes together.
Then add milk powder and icing sugar.
Mix until fluffy.
Decorate cupcakes with frosting and pieces of bars.
Aren't they cute?!
