I haven't made this one yet but it looks so good! I'm not sure how many these make, I guessed.

This is a fabulous recipe, and surprisingly uncomplicated! Took me about 45 minutes start to finish. The only problems: the recipe makes too much frosting (I think I'll halve it next time), not enough espresso syrup for my coffee-drenched tastes. Also, this recipe makes 2 dozen cupcakes, NOT the 12 servings listed above. Thanks for sharing on zaar!

Directions

  1. In large mixing bowl at high speed, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until foamy. Add half of the sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating constantly until sugar is dissolved and whites are glossy and stand in soft peaks. Rub just a bit of meringue between thumb and forefinger to feel if sugar has dissolved.
  2. In small mixing bowl at high speed, beat egg yolks until thick and lemon-colored, about 3 to 5 minutes. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, water, vanilla and salt (if desired) until blended.
  3. With a sifter or sprinkle flour with a sieve over whites. Add beaten yolk mixture. Gently, but thoroughly, fold yolk mixture and flour into whites.
  4. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 min or until done.
  5. Espresso Syrup.
  6. In a small, heavy saucepan over high heat, combine the water, the remaining 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar and the espresso or coffee powder. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool.
  7. Use a fork to poke a few holes into cupcakes so that they will absorb liquid. Pour approximately ½-1 teaspoon of syrup onto each cupcake.
  8. Frosting.
  9. In a medium bowl using an electric mixer set on medium speed, beat together the mascarpone cheese, confectioner’s sugar and marsala until well blended. Add the cream and beat until fluffy, about 1 minute. Frost cupcakes with mascarpone/whipped cream mixture. Dust tops with cocoa powder (I used unsweetened) and then sprinkle with dark chocolate shavings.
