To make this easy muffin recipe, I’ve added everything you’ll need below:
For the waffles, you will need:
° 250 grams of cake flour.
° 1½ teaspoons of baking powder.
° 1 teaspoon of salt.
° 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg.
100 grams of sugar.
30 grams of soft butter at room temperature.
2 large egg yolks.
115 grams of fresh cream.
Rapeseed oil, for frying.
+For the glass, I used:
° 350 grams of sifted powdered sugar.
° 1 1/2 teaspoons of corn syrup.
° 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
° 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.
° 1/3 cup of hot water.
* How to make the cakes:
Step 1: I sifted the cake flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg into a mixing bowl.
Step 2: Gathered the butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment and beat until sandy.
Step 3: I then mixed in the egg yolks until they were light and thick.
Step Four: In three batches, I added the dry ingredients to the mixer bowl, alternating with the sour cream and ending with the flour.
Step 5: When the dough became dirty, I chilled it for an hour after wrapping it in plastic wrap.
Step six: Next, I rolled out the dough to about 1/2 inch thick on a fresh sheet.
Step Seven: To make as many cupcakes as possible, I used a doughnut cutter or two different cookies, dipping the cutters in flour as needed to keep them from sticking.
Note: You should be able to get about 12 donuts and holes with this recipe.
Step Eight: In a heavy-bottomed pot equipped with a frying thermometer, I added 2 inches of canola oil.
Step 9: I fried the cakes in groups, being careful not to overcook the pot, it took 2 minutes on each side.
Step 10: I removed it from the oil and poured it into a paper bag to absorb the remaining grease.
Here’s the method for the glaze:
Step 1: In a mixing bowl, whisk all ingredients together until smooth.
Step 2: Using a pastry brush, I coated each donut with glaze.
Step 3: To catch the excess glaze, I placed a rack on a tray and let it dry for 20 minutes.
Note: The cakes are best eaten the same day they are made, but can be stored at room temperature for a few days in an airtight bag.
I hope you enjoy these cakes!!!
