Cupcake filling, the recipes
While the cupcakes cool we can prepare some stuffing.
- Filled with chocolate: whip the mascarpone together with two egg yolks, four tablespoons of sugar and three tablespoons of Nutella, in the electric blender. With a syringe without a needle, take the mixture and inject them into the cold cupcakes.
- Stuffed with strawberry: in a pan, over low heat, stir continuously the diced strawberries. When softened, add three tablespoons of sugar and two tablespoons of corn starch. Then continue mixing until they thicken. With the syringe, take the mixture and inject them into the cold cupcakes.
- Filled with white chocolate: this filling must be done raw. Fill the cups with the dough halfway up, place a square of white chocolate in the center, cover with more mixture and put in the oven.
- Filled with white chocolate and coconut: finely chop 100 grams of white chocolate. Heat 25 cl of cream together with a tablespoon of butter, a tablespoon of sugar then bring everything to a boil. Stir until the mixture is smooth, remove from heat and add the chopped chocolate and the finely chopped coconut. Leave everything to rest for 5 minutes, then mix to obtain a smooth and homogeneous cream. With the syringe, take the mixture and inject them into the cold cupcakes.
