Banoffee Cupcakes

Step 1

In a large bowl whip the egg whites until starting to foam. Then slowly drizzle in 2 tablespoons of sugar and continue to mix on medium speed until stiff peaks form, then set aside.

In another bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder, then set aside.

Step 5

Gently fold in the dry ingredients until almost completely combined then fold in the egg whites, again until just combined.

Mix all together

Step 6

Bake for 13-16 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with only moist crumbs no wet batter, or if you gently press the top of the cupcake it bounces back immediately.


Step 7

Once the cupcakes have completely cooled use a knife to cut a hole out of the center, you want it to be fairly deep but not all the way to the bottom. You basically just want the top part left to cover the ducle de leche filling.


Step 8

Place dulce de leche in a piping bag with no tip or a medium round tip to easily fill the holes of the cupcakes, then place the "lid" piece of the cupcake back on top.

Add Dulce De Leche

Step 9

Swirl the frosting on top or use a knife to gently spread it. Drizzle dulce de leche on top of the frosting then sprinkle with chocolate pieces.
