Anyone else missing brunch?
Being pregnant, especially during a pandemic has me missing Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s at brunch. As soon as our favorite brunch spots open back up and baby girl has arrived, I cannot wait to indulge. Until then, I have a fun recipe to bring a refreshing, Springtime brunch to your home!
Mimosa Cupcakes with Orange Cream Buttercream Frosting
This recipe uses two delicious products from my friends at Amoretti. They are my go-to for Natural Artisan Flavors, Compounds, Extracts and more. They really changed the game and how easy it is flavor baked goods and even cocktails. Here I used the Mimosa Compound and Orange Cream Artisan Natural Flavor to truly embody the classic taste of a Mimosa!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 3 egg whites
- 2 ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ cup sour cream
- ½ cup milk
- 40 grams (or 7 tsp) Amoretti Mimosa Compound
- 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 ½ tbsp Amoretti Orange Cream Artisan Natural Flavor
- optional fresh orange wedges for garnish
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Add cupcake liners to cupcake/muffin tin, then set aside.
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder.
- Add butter, egg whites, sour cream, vanilla, milk and mimosa compound. Mix until well combined.
- Fill liners halfway full.
- Bake for 17-19 minutes.
- Allow to cool for 15 minutes.
- In a standmixer (using the paddle attachment), slightly cream the butter. Then add confectioners’ sugar ¼ cup at a time until well combined. Then add orange cream flavor until completely mixed.
- Frost the top of each cooled cupcake or use a piping bag. Top with a fresh orange wedge.
