3. Cupcakes Tiramisu, the Dough Preparation

My cupcake bases, called sponge, are mostly baked in paper moulds.

This makes my cupcake a perfect finger food.

I prefer to take the sheets and place the paper moulds into them.

Without paper moulds it is also possible, then you use silicone moulds or muffin sheets directly.

You should grease both well without using paper.

For cupcakes there are many colourful paper moulds or silicone moulds. © Thomas Sixt Foodfotograf

The cupcake dough needs high temperatures.

That’s why I preheat the oven so that the dough rises nicely.

The cakes get a light brown caramel crust on the outside and are beautifully juicy and fluffy baked on the inside.

The optimal baking temperature for my cupcakes is 180° C hot air, the baking time about 22 minutes.

I take my time for the sponge mixture and always whip the eggs frothy with sugar so that an airy volume gets into the dough.

Tip from Chef Thomas Sixt

The flour must be sifted fresh and then stirred into the dough. That way the cupcakes are better…

After baking, I let my cupcake bases cool in the muffin trays for 5-10 minutes and then remove them from the mould.

4. The Topping for Cupcake Tiramisu

I always prepare the topping which is also called frosting fresh. I apply the topping just before serving so that it stays in shape.

I prepare the cream for my cupcake topping or freezing with hardened coconut fat, icing sugar, cream cheese and caramelized blueberries.

The topping is applied elegantly and piled high on the cupcake. © Thomas Sixt Foodfotograf

5. Decoration of the Cupcakes

For the decoration of the cupcake I like to use cocoa powder or some coffee powder.

I apply the final decoration to the topping of the cupcakes just before serving.

This closes the circle to the Tiramisu, which I present to you elsewhere here on the Foodblog.
