Recipe Post 2016 NO.5 -Honeycomb Cream cupcakes

Hiya everyone!

I hope you've had an awesome week and managed to check out last week's post on best baking books EVER!

This week, I'm back to baking what I always use bake-cupcakes. The last time I baked cupcakes was the start of December last year. And they were just  standard chocolate cupcakes. But this cupcake recipe is different from an  ordinary fairy cake.

In order to make these Honey Comb Cream Cupcakes, you'll need:

125g of unsalted butter,softened

50g of caster sugar

2 medium-sized eggs

75g of clear honey

125g of self-raising,sifted       

50g of rolled oats

1/2tsp of baking powder

1tbsp of milk

To decorate you'll need:
125g of unsalted butter,softened
300g of golden icing sugar
2tbsp of milk
1 Crunchie bar, crumbled

Equipment needed:

12-hole muffin tin

Muffin cases

Handheld/free-standing mixer

Wooden and metal spoon

Icing kit (nozzles,piping bag)

Method to making these honey cupcakes:

Firstly,pre-heat your oven to 190c/170cfan/374F,Gas Mark 5. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with muffin cases.

Using a handheld or free-standing mixer,whisk the butter and caster sugar in a bowl or beat with a wooden spoon until pale and creamy.

Gradually,whisk in the eggs and honey until combined.

Switch the mixer to a metal spoon and fold in the flour,oats, baking powder and milk until well mixed. Divide the mixture equally into the muffin cases.


Bake in oven for 20 minutes, checking the cupcakes every ten minutes, until golden and risen. Cool in the tin for five minutes before transferring onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
To decorate this cupcakes,place the butter into a bowl and whisk until fluffy. Gradually, add half
the icing sugar and whisk,then add the milk and the remaining icing sugar and whisk until light and fluffy.

Insert a star nozzle into a piping bag,fill the bag with the buttercream icing and pipe a swirl on the top of each cake. Decorate each cupcake with broken pieces of a Crunchie Bar. 

And that's how you make Honeycomb Cream cupcakes! I hope you've enjoyed this week's recipe. If you do manage to make these cupcakes, please send me a picture to"" or comment below to let me know how you got on-I'd really appreciate it!
