Cupcakes with berry fruits

Recipe is from HERE (yes i’m molesting this site, i still have a long list of recipes i want to try from there XDD ) which is orginally  from Donna Hay magazine (recipe for “Berry cupcakes” but a bit modified). I also modified it due to lack of some ingredients at home ;p

INGREDIENTS:
–  125g of soft butter
– 3/4 cup of sugar (i used 250ml)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
– 2 eggs
– 1 and 1/4 cup of flour
– 1 teaspoon of baking powder
– 1/2 cup of milk

– berry fruits – Originally they are mostly blueberries (also with other berry fruits) but i’v had only strawberries XD

There is also fluffy cream top, but i didn’t make it XD

To make it you will need:
– 250ml of very cold 30% cream
– 80g of little meringues
– and some berry fruits
Whip the cream, mix with crushed meringues and fruits.

Okay, back to the cupcakes XD
put butter, sugar and vanilla extract in the bowl and mix them by blender (for about 15 minutes)

Add eggs (one by one) and mix it well

Sieve flour with baking powder, and add it by a spoon (not all at once) by turns with milk.

put to the cupcake forms (lol i didn’t have enough paper forms, so i had to do some in silicoon one XD ) more than 1/2 height
cut some strawberries (or other berry fruits) and put on cupcakes
bake in preheated oven 160C for 20 minutes and next in 170C for 10 minutes

I melted some white chocolate (but it’s my own taste XD )

-200g butter  (cut in squares) i used lurpak
-1 spoon of instant coffee i used nescafe sensatione creme
-170g of flour
-pinch of salt
-1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
-1/4 teaspoon of soda
-25g cocoa
-400g cane sugar (can be white sugar too)
-3 medium eggs
-75ml of butter milk (but i used natural yoghurt)

CREAM
-200g dark chocolate
-250ml of cream 30%
-2 spoons of cane sugar

DECORATION
-100g dark chocolate

CAKE:
break/cut chocolate and butter into squares, melt coffee in 125ml of cold water

melt all (but don’t heat too much). When ingredients will start melt get off from fire, and mix till they’ll fully melt

like that:

prepare dry ingredients. Sieve flour, baking powder, soda and cocoa in the bowl, add sugar and mix them well

Make egg part: mix eggs (by blender) but not too much – just to mix yolks and whites well. Add buttermilk (yoghurt) and mix

Add chocolate and eggs to the bowl with dry ingredients and mix them GENTLY

Smear 19-21cm form by butter. Pour our cake to the form, and put it to preheated oven (160C) and bake about 1h 25min
baked cake:

Wait till it will fully get cool, and cut it to get 3 flats (i also cutted off the top) Be careful, because cake is moist and delicate :)

PREPARING THE MOUSSE
break the chocolate into squares, put it in bowl. Get small pot and warm up well the cream and 2 spoons of sugar (don’t boil it)
pour it to the bowl with chocolate, and mix until it will melt. Leave it  for  a while till it will get cool and more thick (i put it into fridge)

Smear the mousse between flats and on top

DECORATION

melt 100g chocolate and smear it on the flat surface, wait until it solidify enough, to scrape off it by spatula (or other utensil)
I was too long on the compy, and my chocolate solidified too much, so i used hairdryer a little :D

put the decoration in the cake and ta-dah~
store the cake in closed box (no need to put it in the fridge)

coconut cookies

–RECIPE HERE/PRZEPIS STĄD–

proportions for about 14 big cookies. I multiplied all by 2 to make more, also added more shreds (about 500g instead of 400)

2 eggs
140g of powder sugar
200g of coconut shreds

whipping egg whites

added egg yolks and powdered sugar, and blend a little more

add coconut and mix

for baking i used biscuit sheet and baking paper, and made less than 5cm round cookies (don’t flat them too much, cause they’re flatting in the oven) If it’s too fluent, add more shreds (like in my case. I wanted fluffy cookies – not coconut pancakes XD ) bake in 170C for about 15minutes – till they will be gold on the top (don’t worry if the consistence will be too soft. It should stiffen in few minutes :) )

full view is a must.
