Wow, i wasnt sure about cupcakes with the 3 Leches. I have been asked about these, thanks for the recipe!
Oh, by the way, do you leave the paper liner in the foil tin as well?
This is Martha Stewart's recipe. The only variation is the vanill and rum but exact same instructions and measures. I just did it two days ago and it's great. I also did a chocolate and dulce de leche variations and they were also great. I highly recommend this recipe.
has anyone ever tried adding Baileys Irish Cream to the milk mixture? I've been wondering about that. I'm going to try it.
i found this recipe months ago before i joined CC, and theyre my new FAVORITE cupcake. i made a few tweaks to the recipe, but i love how light and buttery these are. i sugest using coconut MILK (not water) instead of heavy cream. i also like to put some cinnamon or mexican chocolate instead of strawberries!
take out the paper liners. the cupcake will stick and the milk will dissolve it. not fun or yummy.
This is a good recipe...I tried it today and its def yummmm!
