Cranberry Cupcakes with Maple Cream-Cheese Frosting

Gourmet | November 1995

Can be made in 45 minutes or less.

Servings: Makes 6 cupcakes.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup dried cranberries
6 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
a pinch freshly grated nutmeg
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg, beaten lightly
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk

For Frosting:
1/4 cup (2 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons pure maple syrup or honey

Preparation: Preheat oven to 350°F. and line six 1/2-cup muffin tins with paper liners.
In a small heatproof bowl cover cranberries with boiling water and soak 5 minutes.

While cranberries are soaking, into a bowl sift together flour, cornstarch, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch salt. In another bowl with an electric mixer beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy and beat in egg, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Stir in flour mixture and milk alternately in several batches, beginning and ending with flour and stirring until smooth after each addition.

Drain cranberries and pat dry. Chop cranberries fine and stir into batter. Divide batter among muffin tins and bake in middle of oven until a tester comes out clean, about 20 minutes.


Making frosting while cupcakes are baking:
In a bowl beat together frosting ingredients until smooth and chill.

Turn cupcakes onto a rack and cool 10 minutes. Spread cupcakes with frosting.

What is CCCC#7

fiddlesticks Posted 16 Oct 2008 , 1:36am

lizzyanne1.. CCCC#7= Cake central cupcake club...Its the recipe listed top of this page. Every 2-3 weeks a person chosen by a number pick gets to pick a recipe for every/any one who wants to try it and post the results . And also tell what changes they might make to have it turn out better . This is the 7th choice. Its also a good way to get new recipes.

frstech Posted 16 Oct 2008 , 1:06pm

My recipe that bad, or is everyone busy right now?? I know I am, just starting that roll into that time of year!! icon_biggrin.gif

Dawn

GrandmaG Posted 16 Oct 2008 , 1:11pm

I think we're all pretty busy! I'll get to them within the next 2 weeks though. I wonder if they're not more of a muffin? I noticed there's not much liquid in the recipe.

frstech Posted 16 Oct 2008 , 1:15pm

Well the title says cupcake, but I agree with you that it looks more like a muffin recipe!! Oh well, I am sure my group will eat them up either way.

Dawn

GrandmaG Posted 16 Oct 2008 , 1:19pm

It sounds wonderful any way! It gives us a good excuse to eat them in the morning! Has fruit too! icon_biggrin.gif

Whoa icon_eek.gif I just had a Bill Cosby moment, "Dad is great, give us the chocolate cake!" icon_biggrin.gif

fiddlesticks Posted 16 Oct 2008 , 1:51pm

Dad is great, give us the chocolate cake!"
I loved that !!!No your recipe is NOT bad I have been so busy to, we still have plenty of time though !

zoomzone Posted 17 Oct 2008 , 12:59am

mmmm Dawn sounds so good!
I have been filing all the recipes for later use! It IS a busy time and I guess it will get busier until after the holidays!

Yeah, so many cake related things to do and handling the holidays beyond our caking!!

I was wondering if everyone would like to put the cupcake club on hold until January 5th at which time I would notify the next person and we could all start fresh then. I know it is increasingly hard during the holidays to try new things and thought maybe we could just go on a short hold. Please let me know what you all think.

Dawn

P.S. I will put a reminder on that date on my computer, so as I don't forget, if we decide to do this.

fiddlesticks Posted 17 Oct 2008 , 4:03pm

Hey Dawn ! That would be fine with me ! We all might miss a lot of good recipes if we try to fit to much in at one time ? I know from now till after The new yr Im super busy with family b/days and all the Holidays and xmas shopping and getting all my homemade gifts made! It seems never ending between now and then , though it is my fav time of yr! So what ever everyone wants to do is fine with me.

chassidyg Posted 17 Oct 2008 , 4:14pm

I think that's a great idea Dawn. I've been to busy to even do 1 week, it's always some kind of issue here the last couple of months, lol......but in January, it'll be to cold to want to leave the house, and I'll be wanting to bake a ton (keeps the house nice and toasty then as well!).

zoomzone Posted 17 Oct 2008 , 5:05pm

I too think thats a good idea- and in January we will be ready like Chass said!

GrandmaG Posted 17 Oct 2008 , 7:45pm

That's fine with me. We can still make suggestions on the cc thread if we have new recipes!

frstech Posted 17 Oct 2008 , 9:25pm

THAT SETTLES IT, I WILL START US AGAIN ON JANUARY 5TH!!

Melvira Posted 18 Oct 2008 , 3:18am

Oh sure, everyone have a fun time without me?? Cancelling the club and all. Waaahhhhhh!!! icon_cry.gif I'm going to go drown my sorrows in a huge bowl of whipped ganache. Please, no one try to save me! icon_twisted.gif

fiddlesticks Posted 18 Oct 2008 , 3:28am

Dont forget to add some malt flavoring to !LOL!!

Melvira Posted 18 Oct 2008 , 3:44am

I'm on that!
