Cava Cupcakes!

It is not easy to do all the filming for CavaTV and taking care of a eight months old baby, that is for sure. So please excuse the not very logical cupcake clip of this week. And seriously I do not know what to do with my shaky hands. I just have to work something out since I can't rely on Andréas being at home to help me. Well well! Skärmavbild 2015-03-19 kl. 13.04.55

This week it is cava cupcakes on the menu, and I am so very happy with how they turned out! Cupcake Jemma was my inspiration but it is actually Leila Lindholm  who is the person behind the recipe I have used today. If you can read Swedish I recommend that you just click Leila's name here above fore the original recipe. For you who don't I have translated it here below. The only change I have done is that I have replaced the lemon juice  with Vilarnau's demo-sec cava.

bild-3Cava Cupcakes (about 48 small) 3 egg's 2,5 dl sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar 100 gr butter 1 dl milk 3,5 dl flower 2 teaspoons bakingsoda a pinch of salt 0,5 dl semi-sweet cava

Cream cheese frosting 60 gr soft butter 5 dl icing sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar 1 tablespoon lemonjuice 100 gr cream cheese food coloring (optional)

Put the oven on 175 C. Then mix sugar, melted butter and vanilla sugar. When it is fluffy, ad the milk and then the flower and baking soda. When all is mixed, ad the cava and mix gently. Fill the cups alit more then half and then bake in in the oven for about 15 minutes. 

Mix the ingredients for the frosting and don't forget to ad the icing sugar through a sieve (spelling??) so you don't get lumps in the frosting. Then go crazy with the frosting and decorate away!

Compete for the sweet!

For all you people living in Sweden and who loves desserts and sweet stuff, I have a recommendation!

As some of you might already know there is a new sweet sparkling wine at our monopoly. It is 100% muscat and has a wonderful fruity character and goes great with most kinds of desserts. You can even make a sorbet on it! Keep an eye out here on the blog for the receipt.

In the meen time you can go up on Mia's website and compete. The happy winner will receive a masterclass with Sweden's "Årets konditor", Cecilia Andersson (Sweden's best confectioner 2012).

If you just want to try Mia moscato you will find it at your local Monopoly. A real bargain for 49 SEK!
