Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

Icing

Quantity Ingredient
50g white chocolate
100ml whipping cream
10g caster sugar

Base

Quantity Ingredient
2 eggs, separated
60g caster sugar
1 tablespoon rose water
60g butter
55g plain flour
pinch salt
250ml milk, at room temperature
100g blueberries

Equipment

Quantity Ingredient
silicone muffin cases, greased with butter

Method

  1. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave or in a bain-marie. At the same time, heat half of the cream in a saucepan. Pour this cream, a third at a time, onto the melted chocolate, mixing well after each pouring. Then incorporate the rest of the cream. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 150°C.
  3. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar and rose water until the mixture whitens. Melt the butter and stir it into the mixture. Fold in the flour and salt, then beat for a few more minutes. Pour in the milk little by little, whisking constantly.
  4. Beat the egg whites until stiff and, using a whisk, gently incorporate them into the batter. Sprinkle blueberries inside the muffin tins. These will move into the middle of the cakes by themselves as they bake. Pour the batter on top and bake in the oven for 27 minutes. Before turning the cakes out, leave to set in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  5. Take the icing out of the fridge and whip for about 10 minutes, incorporating the sugar little by little. Decorate the cupcakes with the whipped icing to serve.

Chef ’s tip

  • Make the icing first as it should rest in the fridge for a few hours.

    Add a few blueberries on top of the whipped icing to finish.
