Fudge Cupcakes with Honey Frosting

Fudge CupcakesThese Fudge Cupcakes with Honey Frosting are week 12 of my New Year’s Resolution for 2013 to cook at least one new thing every week, for the year.

I love cupcakes and make them a lot. They are quick to do and if I’ve wanted a bit of variety I’ve simply added chocolate chips or raisins. Well I thought it was time to get a bit more adventurous with my cupcake baking and try something new. Hence these little beauties were born, although they’re not so little as I am quite greedy when it comes to cake so I’ve made these in large muffin cases.

How To Make Fudge Cupcakes with Honey Frosting

Ingredients
(Makes 12 large cupcakes)

  • 250 g butter (150 g for the cakes and 100 g for the frosting)
  • 150 g sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 225 g self-raising flour
  • 100 g mini fudge pieces (75 g for the cakes and 25 g for decorating the frosting)
  • 200 g icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of clear honey
  • Optional – 2 tabs honeycomb pieces for decoration

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven 180 C.
  2. Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat the eggs and gradually beat into the butter and sugar with a spoon or two of the flour to prevent curdling.
  4. Fold in the rest of the flour to form a smooth thick batter. It needs to be thicker than a normal sponge mix otherwise the fudge pieces will sink.
  5. Fold in 75 g of the fudge pieces and spoon the mixture evenly into 12 large muffin cases.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until risen and golden brown.
  7. When your cakes are cooked and cooled make the Honey Frosting by combining 100 g of butter with 200 g of icing sugar and 1 tablespoon of clear honey. If the mix is too dry then add the second spoon of honey.
  8. Pipe or spread onto the cakes and sprinkle with the remaining 25 g of fudge pieces and the honeycomb pieces if using.
