French Toast Cupcakes


Um. Hello.
These are really good. 
A word to the wise though, eat them while they're fresh. After a day or two-->not so good. But good when they are newbies. 

I randomly had the idea to make these a few weeks ago, so I brainstormed for a while, and then decided to make them on Sunday morning.  I was pretty pleased with how they turned out. 
I used real butter, which really makes a giant difference.
Promise. 
Prom-Prom.

French Toast Cupcakes

3/4 c unsalted butter, room temperature
1 c sugar
1/2 c unsweetened applesauce
3 egg yolks
1 3/4 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 Tbs maple syrup
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c milk

Egg Wash
1  egg
2 Tbs milk
1 tsp cinnamon

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Combine the butter and sugar on low speed until light and fluffy, scraping the sides as needed. 
2. Add the applesauce and the egg yolks and continue to mix.
3. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. 
4. In another bowl, whisk the maple syrup, vanilla and milk. 
5. Add the flour and milk mixtures alternatively to the butter mixture, starting and ending with the flour. Increase the speed and continue to mix until fully combined. 
6. Put cupcake papers in a pan and fill 3/4 with batter. 
7. Cook at 375 for 10-12 minutes(mini cupcakes) or 15-17 minutes(regular cupcakes) or until a toothpick comes out clean. 
8. While they are cooking, whisk the extra egg, 2 Tbs of milk, and 1 tsp cinnamon for the egg wash. Once the cupcakes are done, quickly pull out of the oven, and brush with the egg mixture. Place back in the oven on broil for 1-2 minutes, or until the mixture is fully cooked. 

Maple Frosting

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
2 3/4 c confectioners' sugar
2 tsp milk
3/4 tsp maple extract

1. Mix the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, scraping the sides as needed. 
2. Reduce speed on mixer, and add the milk and maple extract. Raise the speed to high and mix until fluffy. 
3. Coat cupcakes with frosting, then sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!!

This sounds amazing! I can't wait to try it out - maybe even for breakfast tomorrow morning! Thanks for pioneering the way.

Those cupcakes sound so delicious. They look fabulous. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your cupcakes up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/06/sweets-for-saturday-21.html

So I am making these cupcakes as we speak and it doesnt say what to do with the eggs. The only thing it says is to use the remaining egg to brush the cupcakes. So I am at a loss with everthing already mixed together.

THanks for pointing that out! Sorry about that, I'm fixing it right now!

Awesome! I'm so glad!

What's the quantity of 2 sticks of butter?

 
At October 29, 2011 at 12:28 AM , Blogger Erika said...

One stick is 4 oz, 8 Tbs, and 1/2 cup, so two would be 8 oz, 16 Tbs, or 1 cup. Hope that helps!

When I made them the paper didn't stick. Did anyone else have this problem? They taste great, but don't look good to use at my party. Did I do something wrong?

@jamie-do you mean the paper did stick? I'm confused at what was wrong?
