These cupcakes are the perfect way to celebrate an upcoming birthday or other occasion. The cake is lightly flavored with vanilla and orange or a fragrant and flavorful dessert. The frosting for these delicate little cakes is made of mascarpone for a slightly tart addition. A touch of vanilla and powdered sugar add a little sweetness to the cheese, making for a perfecct balance between the frosting and the cake.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 150 grams brown sugar
  • 150 grams butter (melted)
  • 1/2 orange
  • 200 grams flour
  • 150 grams mascarpone
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Whisk the eggs with the sugar until the mixture whitens.
  3. Add the melted butter, the juice and the zest of half an orange. Mix well.
  4. Add the flour gradually in increments.
  5. Fill in the cupcake cups with the batter until 2/3 full.
  6. Bake for approximately 25 minutes.
  7. Once the cupcakes are cooled, prepare the icing: mix the mascarpone with the powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Put this mixture into a piping bag and decorate as you wish! You can even add a half slice of crystallised orange on top if you like.

These cupcakes are so good, but the frosting is outstanding. I cooked these in a mini cupcake pan so it only took about half the baking time.
