Prep
Cook
Serves 12people
Ingredients
Tres Leches Mix
2 1/2
cups cake flour
1
tsp baking powder
1
tsp baking soda
1
tsp fine salt
1
stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2
cups granulated sugar
3
large eggs
1
tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4
cups milk
Tres Leches Mix
1
12-ounce can evaporated milk
14 1/2
14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
3/4
cup heavy cream
Whipped Cream Mascarpone Frosting
1
tsp vanilla extract
3/4
cup confectioners' sugar
4
ozs mascarpone cheese
Directions
1.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cupcake tins with paper liners.
2.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
3.
Cream the butter and granulated sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy and light. Add the eggs, one at a time beating well between each addition. Then add the vanilla and mix until fluffy. Fold in the flour mixture, alternating with the milk. Do not over mix. Portion into the prepared cupcake tins. Bake for about 20 minutes.
4.
Once the cupcakes have cooled, about 30 minutes, you can inject the cake with about 2 ounces of the Tres Leches Mix. If you do not have an injector, then fork the cupcake gently on the top, and then spoon the tres leches over top so as to not break up the cake. Let sit in the fridge for at least an hour.
5.
Top each cupcake with some of the Whipped Cream Mascarpone Frosting.
6.
Tres Leches Mix: Combine the three milks in a blender until well combined, and then chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
7.
Whipped Cream Mascarpone Frosting: a metal bowl. Add the heavy cream, vanilla extract and confectioners' sugar. Start to beat the heavy cream until you see the liquid thicken, and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Mix in the mascarpone cheese and blend to combine.
