WINTER WHITE cupcakes




Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line muffin pan with liners
Makes 12 cupcakes

CUPCAKES

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
3/4cup sugar
1/4cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 egg whites
1/2 tsp vanilla
2/3cup buttermilk
1/2cup white chocolate (chips or chopped)

1. In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
2. In a bowl, using electric mixer, beat together sugar and butter until well combined. Add egg whits, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Alternately beat in flour mixture and buttermilk, making three additions of flour mixture and two of buttermilk, beating until smooth. Stir in white chocolate chips.
3. Scoop batter into prepared pan. bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until tops of cupcakes spring back when lightly touched. Let cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely on rack. Top cooled cupcakes with frosting.


FROSTING

3 oz white chocolate (chips or chopped)
1/4cup unsalted butter
4 oz cream cheese at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


1. Melt white chocolate (I used the microwave, many recipes recommend using a double boiler), and transfer to large bowl.
2. Add butter, cream cheese and vanilla to the white chocolate and beat with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth and blended.
3. Add the powdered sugar, mixing until it is incorporated and the frosting is smooth.
4. Frost cupcakes.


WHITE CHOCOLATE CURLS

6 to 8 oz block of white chocolate

1. At room temperature, hold chocolate in one hand and use a swivel vegetable peeler to scrape curls from the block of chocolate. Scrape peeler away from you until you have 2 cups of curls. Freeze curls for 30 minutes to firm the curls for easier handling.
2. Spoon the curls on top of the cupcakes or turn cupcakes over and dip into curls.

ENJOY!!
