I made cupcakes instead of a large cake, bake for about 20 to 30 minutes.
Strawberry and Orange Frosting
180 g butter
2 cup sugar (add more sugar for a firmer frosting)
a few strips of orange peel
250 g mascapone or cream cheese
small handful of frozen strawberries
pink food colouring (optional)
Whizz the suger and orange peel in the Thermomix, on speed 9 for about 30 - 40 sec. Add remaining ingredients and mix on speed 4 for 1 to 2 minutes. Place in fridge for 1 - 2 h before piping.
This recipe looked interesting, so the instead of making one of the usual cupcake batters last week, I whipped up a batch of orange cupcakes. It's definitely a recipe I'd make again. Non-fuss, super easy, and the cake was light and moist, with just the slightest hint of orange.
