My sister wanted cupcakes done with a brown sugar frosting. I came up with this recipe that is a slight alteration to your typical SMBC I LOVED it and so did everyone else. I personally think it tastes like chocolate chip cookie dough without choc. chips although I am gonna try it with a choc. chip cupcake recipe and see how the combination is.
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 4 oz egg whites (approx. 4 large egg whites)
- 1 1/2 cups butter
- 1-2 tsp vanilla
Whisk brown sugar and egg whites together in stainless steel bowl. Set on a hot bath on your stove. Continue whisking until it is no longer grainy to touch about 145 degrees. Remove from heat and put on your mixer with whisk for approx 10-15 mins. till it reaches a meringue like consistency. Switch your whisk with your paddle or beaters and add in your butter a little at time then add in your vanilla. Mixture may look ‘curdled’ a few mins into mixing but keep going till you get a smooth silky texture.
