Total time40min
Serves12

Ingredients

  • 8oz margarine or softened butter
  • 4oz golden caster sugar (white works fine too)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4oz self raising flour
  • 8oz icing sugar
  • 200g white chocolate, melted
  • Can of caramel
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Cupcakes

  1. Beat together 4oz of the margarine/butter and the caster sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the eggs (one at a time) and the vanilla, beating in between each addition. Add a little of the flour if the mixture starts to split.
  3. Add the rest of the flour and fold it in.
  4. Place the mixture a tablespoon at a time in muffin cases that line a muffin tray.
  5. Place into a preheated oven (180 fan, gas 6 etc) for 25-20 mins. Keep checking them and take them out when they are golden brown and spongy.
  6. Once cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  7. Using a knife or corer, take a core out of the middle of the cupcake and fill with some of the caramel.
  8. Apply the buttercream however you see fit and decorate.

Buttercream

  1. Beat the rest of the butter until light and fluffy.
  2. Slowly add in the icing sugar and whisk until fluffy and creamy.
  3. Melt the white chocolate and let cool so as not to melt the butter. Once somewhat cool, add most to the buttercream and fold in. Leave some out to decorate.

Decoration

  1. Drizzle the rest of the white chocolate over the finished cupcakes.
  2. Melt some of the caramel in the microwave for 10 seconds and drizzle over.
