Before beginning my internship at Stonewall Kitchen I was familiar with the products having used them growing up in the area.
Interested to see what the latest and greatest products were before beginning my internship, I went to the best source I could think of; social media. Much to my surprise, the first thing I found was new Chocolate Jams in three different flavors – Strawberry, Raspberry, and Banana – absolutely taking over their Facebook page. As a lover of food, like most of the employees here, you can imagine my excitement. Even more than I love food, I love to bake, and also happen to be guilty of watching most of the cupcake shows currently on TV. So, unsurprisingly, I got the idea to bake cupcakes filled with one of these new, sure to be delicious, chocolate fruited jams. Hoping that it would demonstrate I had indeed done my research, I even made a point to bring up the jams and the cupcake idea during my interview.
I’ve never baked with any kind of gluten free mix before and do not have a gluten intolerance, but I decieded to go with the Gluten Free Vanilla Cupcake Mix. Here it goes… Hopefully they taste as good as I’m expecting!
|Halfway through making the batter! At this point, I had put in the butter and mixed it with some of the cupcake mix, then added the milk and egg before adding the rest of the mix to all be blended together.|
|Here’s the finished mix and the cupcake tins filling up |
|I had a feeling this method wouldn’t work, but I couldn’t resist trying it… On a few of the cupcakes we filled the tray part way, put in some Chocolate Strawberry Jam, and then topped it off with a little more batter to try to bake the filling into the cupcake. |
|Ready to go into the oven|
|And, fresh out of the oven! |
|Cutting out the center, so far they look great to me. And licking the spoon after I finished filling them was a delicious decision. |
|After letting the cupcakes cool for a while and filling them with jam, I was finally able to frost them. The mix that came with the cupcakes was sweet and sugary!|
|Finally, here is a close up of the successfully cored cupcake. As you may have guessed it was a little messy to eat, but still sweet and tasty all the same!|
