Big Black Dog: Raspberry Lime Cupcakes in a Cloche!

September 10, 2009

Raspberry Lime Cupcakes in a Cloche!









We are moving into fall so quickly this year and I thought I would give summer a salute with some Raspberry Lime Cupcakes! What's more summer then deliciously cool key limes and freshly picked raspberries still warm from a late summer's sun.

I followed this recipe exactly as written which is not common for me. But it's been a hectic week and frankly I did not feel like experimenting very much and sometimes it's nice to just follow directions. Except of course I had to add sprinkles of sugar, lime zest and a fresh raspberry topper!

Key Lime Cupcakes
Recipe adapted from Bon Appetit

1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon finely grated lime peel
1/4 teaspoon neon-green food coloring
3/4 cup buttermilk

FROSTING
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon finely grated lime peel
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping: Coarse Sugar Sprinkles, Fresh Raspberry and Lime Zest

CUPCAKES:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line standard muffin pan with 12 paper liners. Whisk both flours in medium bowl. Beat butter in large bowl until smooth. Add sugar; beat to blend. Beat in eggs 1 at a time, then next 3 ingredients (batter may look curdled). Beat in flour mixture in 3 additions alternately with buttermilk in 2 additions. Spoon scant 1/3 cup batter into each liner.
Bake cupcakes until tester inserted into center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool.

FROSTING:
Beat all ingredients in medium bowl until smooth. Spread over cupcakes.

We are having the basement done, so I can't get to my stuff! So the butternut was there waiting to be made into soup!
Anything in a pinch..

Chari,

I found the cake plate at a little flea market in a village not far from my house. It was close to closing time and the vendor offered it to me for $8 and it included the heavy glass dome too. And there is not one chip any where...it's in perfect condition.

I really did not need another dome or cake plate but how could I pass up such a deal!
