Brazo de Mercedes Cupcakes
10 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 can (14 oz) condensed milk
10 egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
3/4 cup sugar
PREPARE THE MERINGUE:
Beat the egg whites using an electric mixer.
Add cream of tartar until soft peaks form.
Gradually add the sugar. Continue mixing until texture is semi-firm.
Line a muffin pan with sturdy cups or baking cups that can stand on their own. If you use a regular liner, the meringue will shrink. (Please see amazon's 25 pack paper liners on the right.)
Pipe the meringue using a star tip. Make sure to leave a hole in the center for the filling later.
Bake at 350 deg F. for 15-18 minutes or until top of meringue turns light to medium brown. (Oven temp varies. Check your product before the set time.)
Remove from oven. Set Aside.
PREPARE THE FILLING (WHILE THE MERINGUE IS STILL IN THE OVEN):
In a sauce pan, combine condensed milk, egg yolks and vanilla.
Simmer over low heat while stirring constantly until mixture becomes thick.
Remove from heat. Set aside. Let it cool.
PREPARING THE CUPCAKES:
After baking, cool for a bit then pipe the filling into the center of the meringue cupcakes.
Lastly, dust the cupcakes with powdered sugar.
*** Yields 18 cupcakes
