Toblerone Cupcakes 2

Recipe (makes 6 big muffins)

Mixture

  • 50 g Toblerone, chopped into smaller pieces
  • 2 1/4 dl plain flour
  • 0.75 dl milk
  • 70 g unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 0.75 dl granulated sugar
  • 1 egg

Frosting

  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 25 g grated Toblerone

Decoration

  • 25 g Toblerone

Muffins: 

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C.

Place the paper cases on a baking sheet.

Stir the sugar and butter until fluffy in a bowl.

Add the egg and continue to whisk.

Pour the vanilla sugar, baking powder and flour into the bowl and whisk a bit.

Add the milk and continue mixing for a couple of minutes more until the mixture is smooth.

Pour the chopped Toblerone pieces into the mixture and stir until everything is just incorporated.

Pour the mixture into the paper cases with help of a tablespoon.

Bake in the middle of the oven for about 20 minutes.

Allow to cool before you put the frosting on.

Frosting and Cupcakes:

Beat the icing/confectioners’ sugar and butter in a freestanding electric mixer with a paddle attachment (or use a handheld electric whisk) on medium-slow speed until the mixture comes together and is well mixed. Turn the mixer down to slow speed.

Combine the milk and vanilla extract in a separate bowl, then add to the butter mixture a little at a time. Once all the milk has been incorporated, turn the mixer up to high speed. Beat until the frosting is light and fluffy, at least 5 minutes. The longer the frosting is beaten, the fluffier and lighter it becomes. Finally, pour the grated Toblerone into the frosting and stir until everything is just incorporated.

Pipe the frosting on top of the cupcakes and decorate with Toblerone!

Mix and kneed it all together until you get a smooth and firm dough. Save a bit of the plain flour.

Let the dough rest and rise under a tea towel for about one hour.

Put the rest of the flour on the surface of the table.

Kneed the dough for a bit and cut out 15-20 pieces of the dough (depending on the size you want to have).

Roll the pieces into balls and flatten them out a bit.

Place them on the parchment paper onto a baking sheet.

Bake in the middle of the oven for about 25 minutes on 200 degrees C.

Take them out from the oven and brush the buns with cold water.
