Last weekend mi girlfriend and I decided to make our first cupcakes. Before somebody asks me wheter I cook, the answer is no. My participation was as a cook assistant and the person who googled the cupcake recipes.
We made two batches, the first ones were made using cocosettes as base (cocosette is a coconut savored cookie here in Venezuela) following the recipe sugguested by a friend of mime, Viviana Trujillo, blogger at bocaditosgourmet.com.ve. In particular, we follow the recipe 1 la receta 1 of her project 52 (52 cupcake recipes). We had to modify that recipe because instead of 12 we tried making 6 cupcakes, so We had to reduce que cuantities by half. The resulta is shown on the first picture. As you can see, the cupcake has a buttercream on the top made with cocosette as well, a little sweet for our taste but delicius.
The cupcake itself was not so fluffy but we could eat it without difficulty and it real tasted like coconut and cocosette. verdad puede apreciarse.
The other stuff my girlfriend wanted to do were some chocolate cupcakes. I did a research on internet but no recipe convince us. So Lourdes decided to use the same recipe for the cocosette cupcake, except the coconut based ingredients. We also used a little of baking soda as baking powder . As you can see, the cupcakes grew up so much, but dispaite this fact they also tasted delicius and were more fluffy than the cocosette cupcakes. we learned, as wel said by Viviana, we must not fill the tray more than 2/3.
We earned the experience and we want to make more cupcakes!
