ROSE WATER CUPCAKES
- Preheat the Air Fryer to 325 degrees and place 8 cupcake liners in a cupcake pan
- In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, combine the butter and sugar and beat together on high until light and fluffy (approximately 5 minutes.)
- Add in the egg white, rose water, vanilla extract, and yogurt and mix on high for another 2 minutes.
- Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt and begin to mix on low.
- With the mixer on low, slowly pour in the milk and mix until just combined. Be careful to not overmix the batter.
- Fill each cupcake liner approximately ¾ full with the cupcake batter and bake for 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool for 10 minutes. Gently remove each cupcake from the pan and place them on a cooling rack to fully cool.
- Combine the diced peaches, peach juice/nectar/or water, sugar, and salt in a medium pot and cook over medium heat until the peaches are soft.
- Combine the cornstarch and 2 tbsp of water in a small bowl.
- Once the peaches are soft, stir in the cornstarch mixture and continue to cook for approximately 3-5 minutes over medium heat while continually stirring.
- Remove the peach filling from the heat once it thickens and mix in the lemon juice. Stir to combine.
- Pour the peach filling into a shallow bowl or dish and cover the surface directly with plastic wrap. Allow to fully cool in the refrigerator for 3 hours or overnight.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and shortening together on high for 5 minutes until light and fluffy.
- Add in the icing sugar and salt and mix on low until combined.
- Using the leftover peach filling, puree it in a blender or food processor.
- Add in ⅛ cup of peach puree and mix on low until combined.
- Add in two drops of orange food color and 4 drops of pink food color if desired.
- Turn the mixer to high and allow to beat for 5 minutes until light and fluffy.
