These are made with a quick easy light batter. I whipped up some egg whites with salt and baking soda then added the egg yolks and sugar. I thought these were going to taste really eggie, but ended up being fine. I then folded in a stick of melted butter then a cup of flour. That's it.
Look at all that yummy liquid at the bottom. :)
Once they came out of the oven, I poked holes in them and brushed on a mixture of evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream. Yum. Once these sat for awhile, they were topped with a sweetened whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon. I think one of the secrets to these are the need to bake these in the Reynold's cupcake wrappers because of all the liquid that is added after they are baked. Also, I had extra of the milk mixture. The recipe says to keep brushing on until all the liquid is used but I felt like it was getting to be too much. I think they turned out perfectly. Definitely a keeper recipe!
I love you, and I LOVE your cupcakes...almost just as much...if I could TRY one! These look amazing, but i'm not surprised. Love you!ReplyDelete
It's so nice to hear such a positive review of the cupcakes! Yours look wonderful! They were just a bit to wet for me, I didn't like the texture. I'd wanted to try tres leches for a while though so glad to cross it off the list :)ReplyDelete
Look delicious! I liked them much better the second day.ReplyDelete

I can see why they said to use foil liners, your's look great!ReplyDelete

Your cupcakes look really yummy! I used all the liquid even though I was thinking to myself this looks like way too much. I should have gone with my gut feeling.ReplyDelete
