Cupcake & Brigadeiro de Capirinha!

05 Aug

Brigadeiro de caipirinha com cachaça e limões

More on ‘high altitude fun baking’… a good combo here: cupcake and brigadeiro de caipirinha, Brazil’s (in)famous drink! For the cupcake (Portuguese recipe below), it’s simple lemon cake batter, and for the frosting, lime chantilly, with a tiny bit of confectioners sugar, and a few drops of cachaça(!!). Add the straws for a more ‘mixed drink look’. Done! 😮

Super Fácil:

[Portuguese] Cupcake de Caipirinha: massa de limão com cachaça, recheio de ganache de limão com cachaça e cobertura de chantilly de limão, o finzinho dele é bem azedinho, e o mimozinho ma rodelinha de limão com canudinho.

Remember this one, from when we were back in Brazil? A huge success among expats and locals!

Since I already had a post on two of the most famous foods of Brazil, “feijoada” and “pão de queijo”, I was sent a great idea and recipe, for desert: a bit daring, interesting & intriguing, but for all the Brazilian Food lovers, should be a great suggestion: BRIGADEIRO DE CAIPIRINHA… Why not have two awesome suggestions on Sunday, all before lunch?

Remember “brigadeiro”? Those little chocolate candies that one may find at birthday parties? Well, this one resembles a famous Brazilian drink: “The Caipirinha”… a candy made with ingredients for a mixed drink… The main ingredient? A little bit of cachaça, Brazil’s famous “sugar cane aguardiente”… 😮 And, obviously: “enjoy responsibly”…. Enjoy at a friend’s house, after a great feijoada… Take a good nap afterwards… find yourself a comfy hammock and forget about getting behind the wheel! 😮 No “eating and driving”, okay? 😮

Here is the imag and recipe, in Portuguese, with comments in English:

Receita do Brigadeiro de Caipirinha

Brigadeiros de caipirinha

Ingredientes

  • 1 lata de leite condensado
  • 2 colheres de sopa de manteiga
  • 50 ml de cachaça / vodka
  • Açúcar cristal
  • Raspas de limão para decorar
  • Opcional: suco de um limão e ½ caixa de creme de leite

Modo de preparo

Leve ao fogo uma panela com o leite condensado, o creme de leite e a manteiga. Vá mexendo em fogo baixo até dar ponto e desgrudar da panela. Tire um pouco do fogo e adicione a cachaça/vodca, e o suco do limão. Volte a panela ao fogo e deixe dar o ponto novamente. Use uma assadeira untada (de manteiga) pra colocar a “massa”, e deixe reservado até esfriar.

Pra fazer as bolinhas: unte as mãos com manteiga, pegue um pouco da “massa” e vá boleando, fazendo movimentos circulares. Passe a bolinha no açúcar cristal, com raspas de limão, para decorar. (Obs: existe um açúcar especial, de confeiteiro, que parece um gelo triturado e também é uma boa opção).

One may add lemon/lime zest over the candy, making it look even more similar to the original drink… Humm!

[Portuguese] Há quem goste de colocar um pouquinho de raspas de limão na massa no lugar do suco. Deve deixar um azedinho bem gostoso!
