Tackling Breakfast Cupcakes

We had another Iron Cupcake: Milwaukee Challenge yesterday! This month the theme was breakfast and my entry was Breakfast in Bed.

Breakfast in Bed Cupcakes
When I first heard about the challenge, I thought "What is the best breakfast I ever had?" The answer was clear. Two years ago, I made Stuffed French Toast for Christmas morning and it was by far the tastest. So, I knew that was it. I just needed to figure out a way to incorporate it into a cupcake.
The first thing that came to my mind was a charolette. This is a molded dessert lined with sponge cake, ladyfingers or buttered bread. I figured that the bread would become the cup of the cupcake. But it wasn't just bread; it was French Toast. This traditionally is bread dipped in egg and milk but I wanted to kick it up a notch. So, I used the custard from a bread pudding recipe for this component. And the "stuffed" part is a cream cheese filling. I finished this dish with a fresh strawberry garnish.

I served these beauties up on a wicker tray lined with my Grandmother's apron. Coupled with "Bacon and Eggs" from Kid's Cookie Day (it's just for show) and a glass of OJ and you have Breakfast in Bed.
Oh, by the way...I won!!!




Yeah Me:-) And...I am going to be on TV again!!
TMJ was filming last night and if you are in the Milwaukee area, watch at 10p.m.!! I am a media whore:-)

Kat said...

Congrats again! So cute. And I bet it was delish. When you do the challenges...do you have to make two? One for display and one for them to taste? Or is it more about the visual rather than what it tastes like?

Lea Ann said...

If I wasn't a "Leggo my Eggo" mommy who cannot cook beautiful food like that, I'd cook a beautiful cupcake like that. Just like that. And eat it all myself. While the kids were at school. And wash the dish before they got home so they wouldn't know what they missed. And then, I'd dance around the house on a custard high.

Tabitha Blue/Fresh Mommy said...

Wow, that looks and sounds SO good!!!! Congrats on your win, it totally deserved it!!

Oh way cool! Congrats, Susie! I meant to ask you in the montage about the bacon and eggs ... because I knew I'd seen it before. Now I don't have to and can just go look it up myself :)
