Pistachio and raspberries cupcakes

Thanks to this recipe and picture I won a cooking contest, the prize ….a  Staub cocotte  !  Time to share it with you…

You’ll need :

110g room temperature butter, 225g sugar, 1 egg, 2 egg whites, 170g flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt, 60ml milk, 1 cup diced raspberries, 1 tbsp pistachio paste.

Preheat oven to 350°F / 180˚C. In a bowl mix together the dry ingredients : flour, baking powder, salt. In another bowl, cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and egg whites  and the pistachio paste until just blended. Add half of the dry ingredients then the milk and the raspberries. Mix until just blended. Add the rest of the dry. Pour the dough in muffin cups. Cook for 20 minutes. Let cool.

I put some blue marshmallow fondant on the cupcakes and write “eat me” with black chocolate. The flower is also made with marshmallow fondant.

Perfect for a children tea party theme !
