Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

For the Cupcakes-
150g unsalted butter
125g self raising flour
60g golden caster sugar
65g brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
2-3 tablespoons milk
For the Icing-
200 g cream cheese, softened.
60 g butter, softened
1 cup icing sugar
1 teas vanilla
(or your favorite icing)


Put butter in a saucepan, heat and stir until it starts burning (caramelised parts will become brown). Cool slightly, then sieve and let solidify (but not harden).

Preheat the oven to 180*C, prepare 12 hole muffin tin.

Beat eggs with sugar and vanilla, until fluffy. Add butter (medium speed), and then alternately add flour (with baking powder) and milk. Do not over beat.

Pour into tins and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

For icing - Beat all ingredients together until smooth. Spread on top of each cupcake; decorate as you wish.
