Strawberry Castella Cupcake Recipe

Strawberry Castella Cupcake is on the menu in Cooking Tree, and we are going to teach you how to make this delicious recipe from scratch!

1. Fold the parchment paper into a square of about 13.5 cm and cut with scissors in four places.

2. Place the paper in the center of a muffin tin and press down firmly with the back of a cup (this is useful if you don't have muffin cups).

3. Place the bowl with the eggs over a saucepan of simmering water and add the sugar, honey, and vanilla extract.

4. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly so that the eggs don't cook, to a temperature of about 40 degrees.

5. Remove the bowl and place the bowl with the butter and milk in a saucepan over medium heat.

6. Whip the egg mixture on high speed to dense, fine peaks. 7. Beat on low speed to clear the air pockets, about 2 minutes.

8. Sift in the flour and raspberry powder (or strawberry powder) and stir to combine. I bought dried raspberries from a baking supply store and crushed them down to use~.

9. Drop a small amount of the batter into a bowl with the melted butter and milk and stir to combine. If you mix the butter and milk right into the dough, you'll lose a lot of air bubbles and the sheets will come out low. This is why it's called sacrificial dough because you're sacrificing a little bit of the dough.

10. Add the sacrificial dough to the main dough and mix with a spatula about 30 times. You don't want to overmix the batter or it will be overworked.

11. Squeeze the batter into the muffin tin and tap to remove any large air bubbles (preheat to 185 degrees).

12. Bake in a 165-degree oven for about 20 minutes, then remove from the molds and let cool. 13. cut out the center of the cupcakes.

14. whip the whipping cream with sugar to about 50% peaks, add the chilled cream cheese, and whip. 15. Fold in the chopped fresh strawberries (if using strawberry puree, fold in roughly).

16. Squeeze a little cream into the indentation in the center of the cupcake and add the chopped strawberries. 17. Scoop the cream with a spoon (6.5 cm) and place it on top of the cake and decorate it with strawberries.
