Sunday Funday: Malteser Cupcakes

 
 
Hello Lovelies,
 
I have really been loving my Sunday Funday posts, this has got me back into baking and I forgot how much I enjoyed it. I am completely obsessed with cupcakes at the moment.
Today I baked Malteser cupcakes - which has some inside too Mmmmm!
 
 
 
 
Cupcake Ingredients:
150g Marg or Butter (I use Stork)
170g Caster Sugar
170g Self-Raising Flour
3 medium eggs

Vanilla Extract60g Maltesers (or as much as you like)

Buttercream Ingredients:

140g butter (again, I just used stork)
225g Icing Sugar 
150g chocolate (you can use anything you like)
Some Maltesers for decoration

Recipe:

1) Pre-heat oven to 200 / Gas 6. Line a muffin tin with your chosen cases (you will need about 10-12)

2) Mix together butter and sugar until sugar has all melted in

3) In a separate jug crack 3 eggs and lightly whisk

4) Gradually fold in eggs and flour (sifted) to the sugar and butter mixture & add in a teaspoon of vanilla extract and Maltesers
5) Spoon the mixture into cupcake cases evenly and bake for 10 - 15 mins, turning half way through.

6) Leave to cool and make your buttercream icing

7) Melt chocolate in a bowl and leave to cool slightly (don't let it set)

8) In another bowl cream butter and sieve in icing sugar until smooth and lump free, mix in your melted chocolate and you are good to go and pipe onto the cupcakes.


Enjoy!
