Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prep cupcake pan with liners.
  2. Mix together mochiko flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and kosher salt. Set aside.
  3. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 5 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in eggs, one at a time, mixing after each egg.
  5. Mix in sour cream, evaporated milk, food coloring and vanilla, mix well.
  6. Gradually mix in the flour mixture on low speed, just until blended.
  7. Use an ice cream scoop and fill the cupcake lined wells evenly, about 2/3 full.
  8. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Do a toothpick test and if it comes out clean, it is done.
  9. Remove from the oven onto a wire rack and cool for about 5 minutes, then remove the cupcakes from the muffin tin and let cool completely.
  10. DULCE DE LECHE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING:
  11. Cream the butter, slowly add half of the powdered sugar, add vanilla extract and half of the heavy cream/milk, mix till well blended.
  12. Add half of the Dulce de Leche and blend well, then add the remainder and blend well.
  13. Add salt, continue with the remaining 2 cups of powdered sugar and mix until you have reached the desired consistency.
  14. Depending on the consistency of the frosting you might used a little more or less of the sugar.
  15. Mix on medium speed for about 4 to 5 minutes. Keep a close watch and do not over mix as it can turn grainy from over mixing.
  16. Make sure that the cupcakes are completely cooled, before frosting or piping.
