This month's motto is "cupboard raid". I am trying to create recipes by using foodstuff and gadgets that I already have in my cupboards (& fridge).
I got a big bag of Läckerli for my birthday. Läckerlis are a type of soft cookie typical for my hometown Basel. Läckerlis contain candied citrus fruit, nuts and Kirsch schnapps.
I used them for cupcakes today. They turned out delicious!
Soak 150g Läckerli in 180ml milk and set aside. Preheat the oven to 180 C.
Whisk 2 eggs & 1/2 cup sugar until fluffy. Add 80ml melted butter or oil (rape seed is my favourite) & whisk until thoroughly combined. Stir in the Läckerli/milk mix.
In a separate bowl mix 1 cup flower, a pinch of salt, 1 tablespoon cocoa, 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda. Add these dry ingredients to your Läckerli mix & stir it in gently.
Fill your cupcake moulds & bake for 15 - 20 minutes (use toothpick test).
I decorated them with melted chocolate and a little piece of Läckerli.
