Ruthie s Cuptail Recipes: Amaretto Sours Cupcakes: (Amaretto White Cake with lemon curd filling, and maraschino

cherry frosting). Cake
y 5 egg whites y 1 cup milk (or buttermilk ± 1 c milk and 2 t white vinegar) y 2 1/4 teaspoons vanilla y 3 cups sifted cake flour y 2 cups sugar y 1 tablespoon baking powder y 1 teaspoon baking powder y 3/4 teaspoon salt y 2 teaspoons baking soda y 12 tablespoons unsalted butter or 12 tablespoons margarine y 3/4 cup boiling water 1/4 cup Amaretto Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Line cupcake pans (I think it makes about 18-24, but not sure). In a small bowl combine the milk and vinegar. Allow to sit for a minute, and then add the baking soda (this will make the buttermilk). In a medium bowl lightly combine the egg whites, a quarter cup milk, and the vanilla (and any other flavorings you are using). In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix them together on low to blend. Add the butter/margarine and remaining 3/4 cup milk. Mix on low speed until dry ingredients are moistened. Increase to medium speed and beat for 2 minutes to aerate. Scrape down the sides and add a small amount of the egg mixture, beating for 20 seconds to incorporate. Continue in the same method twice more until all the egg mixture has been incorporated. Add the boiling water. Scrape down the sides of the bowl AND scrape the bottom of the bowl to loosen anything stuck to it. Beat on low to incorporate then increase to high for 30 seconds. Pour in to the prepared pans. The batter should fill half way each. Watch for how long to bake (not sure at this point), but start with about 20-24 minutes. When they¶ve cooled, you may want to brush them with more amaretto if you can¶t taste it. Just a thought.
