Bad girl cupcakes

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vanilla cupcakes with caramel butter frosting and shaving of orange milk chocolate...

 

Is it wrong?

So the basic sponge is as per usual.

150g margarine or butter

150g caster sugar

1 vanilla pod

 

CREAM – I’m using a fab KitchenAid

 

Add 2 eggs

Sift 150g of self raising flour

 

MIX – start slowly and work gradually faster.

 

Spoon or pipe into cupcake cases.

 

BAKE – they should be golden brown.

 

CARAMEL

 

125g of caster sugar – caramelize in a hot pan. I just add the sugar and stirr – I don’t use water – you may wish to watch this video as it is the same process but without the chocolate

 

80g of gently warmed cream

 

Once the sugar is caramelized gently add the warmed cream.

 

STIR – Leave to cool but not harden!

BUTTERFROSTING

 

One block of unsalted butter

300g of icing sugar

3 – 4 table spoons of cream

 

MIX – I use my KitchenAid – tip – I cover in a damp cloth to stop the plumes of icing sugar.
