These White Chocolate Cupcakes make a cute and yummy base for the creative types or are just as sweet in their own right…
To make 12 of these you will need…
- 100g butter, softened
- ¾ cup caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1⅓ cups plain flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ cup milk, warmed slightly
- 100g white chocolate, melted
To make one batch of white chocolate fudge icing you will need…
- 70g butter
- 250g white chocolate
- ½ cup pouring cream
Preheat oven to 160°C. Place the butter and sugar into a bowl and with an electric mixer beat until light and creamy.
Gradually add the eggs one at a time and beat well. Sift over flour and baking powder and beat until combined. Fold through the milk and chocolate.
Spoon the mixture into twelve 1/2 cup capacity muffin tins lined with paper patty cases. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
To make the fudge icing, simply place the butter, chocolate and cream together in a heat proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until melted and smooth.
Remove from the heat and set aside to cool. Once cooled, beat with electric beaters until thick and fluffy.
Spread each cupcake generously with the white chocolate fudge icing and try not to eat them all at once. Some ideas for decorating the top – fresh berries and icing sugar, chocolate shavings, chocolate coated coffee beans… How would you decorate yours?
