Miri Sugar shared her white chocolate cupcakes with us on our Facebook page. We love the addition of her tangy raspberry buttercream piped on top in a pretty iced rose design.

Ingredients

  • For the
  • white chocolate cupcakes:
  • 200g butter
  • 250g sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 250g sifted flour
  • 2tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2tsp vanilla extract
  • 200ml milk
  • 150g melted white chocolate,
  • For the
  • raspberry buttercream:
  • 150g butter
  • 300g icing sugar, sifted
  • 150g raspberries
  • 1tbsp white granulated sugar
  • You'll also need:
  • Piping bag (optional)
  • Star decorating tip like 2D Wilton, for icing (optional)

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°C/355°F/gas 4 and line a cupcake tin with 10 cases.

  • Beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy.

  • Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

  • Add the vanilla extract and melted white chocolate and beat until it is well combined.

  • Sift the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl.

  • Add the flour mixture and milk to the egg mixture in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Beat after each addition until everything is well incorporated.

  • Fill the cupcake cases 2/3 of the way up and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 mins.

  • Remove from oven, and wait 5 mins before placing on a wire rack to cool completely.

  • For the raspberry buttercream: Put the raspberries in a bowl with white granulated sugar, mix and leave to marinate for 30 mins.

  • Mash well with a fork and strain the raspberry juice into a pouring jug. Set aside.

  • In a large bowl, beat the butter for a few mins until creamy. Gradually add the icing sugar and mix until a smooth consistency. Add in the strained raspberry juice, plus 1tbsp of the raspberry pulp (optional) and mix well until incorporated and your buttercream is evenly pink in colour.

  • Pipe the buttercream icing on top of the cupcakes with a star decorating tip like 2D Wilton, or just spread the frosting on cupcakes.
