The first muffins appeared in Ancient Rome. Then raisins, nuts and sometimes pomegranates were added to the barley puree. In the 16th century, sugar from the American colonies began to import to Europe, which radically changed the whole confectionery industry. It was at this time in Europe have become popular cupcakes - sweet buns with fruit. The recipe for making cupcakes in each region may differ. So in our country a classic cake is considered a product with raisins, in Switzerland, candied fruits and nuts are added to cupcakes, in the USA there are many nuts and fruits in cupcakes, and cakes are impregnated with brandy or liqueur. In the Bahamas, raisins, nuts and fruits are pre-soaked in rum for 2-3 months, and after baking, the cupcakes are poured with rum.
As already mentioned, todayThere are many different recipes for making cupcakes, so we suggest you prepare a classic lemon cake with raisins, which is traditionally popular in our country. In order for cupcakes to turn out delicious, you need to follow several golden rules. For the test of future cupcakes, you should not regret such delicacies as raisins, candied fruits, nuts and other ingredients that make baking even more delicious. In this case, the dough itself should be kneaded quickly, so that the structure of the foam is preserved. Usually, mixing from top to bottom is used for this. As decorations of the top of the cake, you can use glaze and / or nuts, but you do not need to add anything else, because the excess "edible" decorations distract from the taste of the cake itself.
To prepare a traditional lemon cake, we need the following ingredients:
- 3 cups of flour;
- 2 cups of sugar;
- 5 pieces. Eggs (4 proteins and 5 yolks);
- 300 g of butter;
- ½ cup of walnuts (nuts must be pre-shredded);
- ½ teaspoon of soda;
- 1 PC. Lemon (peel);
In addition to the test for the cupcake, we also need to make the glaze. For this we need:
- 200-220 g. Of sugar (or better than powdered sugar);
- 1 protein (just 1 protein will remain from the preparation of the test);
- Juice of 1 lemon.
When all of the above is done, carefully andQuickly mix the resulting dough, which should look like a thick cream. Here is our dough and is ready, it remains to put the dough into cooked forms or to make cupcakes by hand, if there are no molds. In the form do not forget to put the oiled paper and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. When the future cupcakes have got the form, preheat the oven to 1800С - 2000С and put it on the upper tier of the mold. To prepare cupcakes of standard sizes, one hour is often enough.
When the muffins appear appetizing goldenCrust, then you can check the cupcakes for readiness. And in the first half hour baking forms with cupcakes is best not to move. If you thought that the cupcakes are already ready, pierce them, and you will know exactly if the cupcake is ready. To check this way, you need all the cupcakes, because already on the same sheet there may be already prepared and still damp cupcakes. If you find a slightly damp cake, but already with a golden crust, cover it with a piece of thick paper. This will allow you to bake a cake and keep an appetizing crust. When the cupcakes are baked, they need to be removed from the oven and put to cool, without taking out the muffins from the molds.
