A​s with anything Harry Potter inspired, these were magical with a melt in the middle surprise!

2y ago

With butterscotch and cream soda as a base, these are different and enchanting and absolutely sure to satisfy any sweet tooth!

W​hat you'll need

430g all-purpose flour

130g brown sugar

130g white sugar

1/2 tsp salt

3 tsp baking powder

375ml of cream soda

125ml vegetable oil

125g unsalted butter, softened

2 tbsp Greek yogurt

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 large eggs

B​utterscotch Sauce

T​his is a simple 1:1:1 and this volume will easily fill a jar so if you need less than this, you can scale it down as you like!

250g brown sugar (I used dark for a richer taste but light would also work)

250ml extra thick double cream

250g unsalted butter

M​ake the cakes!

1​. Preheat your oven to 180C and prepare your cupcake tin with your chosen cupcake cases

2​. Sift the flour, then thoroughly mix in the brown and white sugar, baking powder and salt.

3​. Mix the butter in till the mixture has a sandy texture

4​. Separately, whisk together the eggs, cream soda, oil, Greek yoghurt and vanilla extract then gradually add this to the dry ingredients and whisk until fully incorporated - the mixture is very wet!

5​. Pour the mixture into the cupcake cases until they are about 3/4 full and then bake for 25 minutes (if you poke them with a skewer, it should come out dry and clean, if not, they need a bit longer but keep an eye on them!)

L​et them cool before decorating

B​utterscotch sauce

Put the butter, sugar and cream in a pan on a medium heat and keep stirring. When the sugar has dissolved, its ready! Transfer it to a jar and let it cool before using


W​hen the cupcakes have cooled, core the middles out. I used an apple corer but if you have patience, im sure you could do this with a knife or spoon - just dont go all the way to the bottom! Fill the void with your butterscotch sauce, right to the top!

T​hese are pretty sweet so I stuck with a simple vanilla buttercream icing, piped tall, and drizzled some butterscotch over the top!

L​et me know what you think of this recipe and give it a go - i'd love to see how you get on!
