"Hjemmebagt" - 73 recipes - 11 accomplished = 62 recipes to bake
Progress again on my target to bake my way through the baking book "Hjemmebagt". This time is was an recipe on elder flower muffins with a mascarpone cream topping.
These muffins are very, very easy to bake and the mascarpone cream is also very easy to make. And the entire combination of muffin and mascarpone cream taste great together with a pleasant flavour of elder flower.
However, the mascarpone cream is quiet soft for the decoration purpose and the amount of cream is too much for the amount of muffins, so I ended up throwing away 25% of the mascarpone cream.
Perhaps using sour cream 38% fat instead of the sour cream 18% fat would give more firmness to the decoration cream ? Perhaps a cooling time of 4-6 hours from making the mascarpone cream to the actual decoration time could also give a bigger firmness. However, I am NOT the type, who will wait 4-6 hours after baking the muffins before decorating AND eating them. This requires to much planning for a "simple" muffin recipe !!!!
