Fudge Dream Cupcakes

These dreamy cupcakes are so light, fluffy and fudgy. If you like fudge you are going to love them.

I pipe on a little caramel buttercream and top them with mini fudge pieces for extra delight. I hope they make your day a better one.

Makes 12


110g butter

110g caster sugar

110g self raising flour

2 eggs

2 tablespoons milk

30g fudge pieces

1 teaspoon caramel syrup

1 teaspoon baking powder

To decorate

250g icing sugar

85g butter

50g fudge pieces to decorate

1 teaspoon caramel syrup

Few drops of iced water to mix


Pre heat oven to 180C / 160C

Line a 12 hole muffin tin with cake cases

Literally mix everything together (except the items to decorate) in the same large mixing bowl however you best like to do so. I like to use an electric whisk.

Transfer to your cake cases evenly and pop in the centre of your oven for approx 15 minutes.

Once the cakes have risen and are golden and springy remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.

Meanwhile, mix up your buttercream ingredients and spoon them into your piping bag with whatever nozzle you fancy.

Pipe the buttercream in a whirly pattern in the centre of each cake and top with a few mini fudge pieces.
