MSC - Tres Leches Cupcakes
These were delicious! One of my favourite Martha Stewart cupcake recipes. I've never had any tres leches dessert, so came to these with an open mind.
The batter is one where the egg whites are beaten separately. This creates the light sponge cake that will absorb the milk mixture brushed onto it. The milk mixture combines evaporated, condensed and heavy cream. Not a recipe for dieters or the lactose intolerant.
After an hour of carefully brushing on the milks, I called it quits and let the cupcakes rest. I got half the mixture on. After letting the cupcakes sit in the fridge over night, I can see that I probably could have added more, though not all, of the milks.
The cupcakes are moist, but not soggy; tasty and not overly sweet. Just to my liking.
Many thanks to Lisa of Smiley's Sweet and Creations for choosing this recipe.
