i'm wanting to make some "kid-friendly" cupcakes and was wanting to know if you can use snowcone syrup to flavor them or if anyone has ever tried this and it didnt turn out right. i know you can use jello to flavor them, but i am currently out and have a cake in the oven so a trip to town is not possible. i cant find anything in a google search about this. anyone have any idea?
Some of the best recipes I have were ALL accidental
I think it would be ok as long as you account for the extra liquid of the syrup
Cant wait to find out how they turned out
well, i had some raspberry syrup so i decided to go for it. i added about half a teaspoon of lemon extract to compensate for the extra sweetness of the syrup and the batter tasted pretty good. in the oven as i type, so i will have to see how they turn out. thinking about a raspberry/lemonade bc to go on them. see if i can find a recipe on here somewhere...
I'd be curious to know how this turns out also, I have several tiny bottles of funky flavored snow cone concentrate, If using them prior to making the syrup with sugar water, they might be good!
I have been getting those teeny bottles of Candy flavoring, and adding them to batters and BC.
The other day I mady Kiwi cupcakes with Watermelon BC...and they were so great!
You could really smell them as you walked into the house
great idea MissLizzy, will have to try that
I hope this works, it'll be a new baking frontier to conquer, let us know how they taste ; )
ok..so, the premade syrup was a flop. for some reason, they all ended up not rising and had air bubbles in the bottom of the cupcakes. and they were chewy. my guess is it was the other ingredients in the syrup that made them chewy. the concentrates should do better. but taste-wise, they were great! small tweak to concentrates and it will be a hit!
