Marshmallow cupcakes

Who doesn't love marshmallows? Please come forward!!! When I saw marshmallow cupcakes, I just had to give this recipe a try!

This recipe calls for small pieces of marshmallows, which is difficult to find in a halal version where I live, so I simply bought the big pieces and cut them into smaller pieces, as needed :)

  • Makes: 12
  • Prep time: 25 minutes
  • Baking time: 20 minutes
What you will need:

For the cupcakes

50g marshmallow, cut into small pieces
125g butter, softened
100g caster sugar
2 eggs
150g self-raising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract

For the topping

75g marshmallows, plus extra small pieces to decorate
300ml double cream

How to make:

1) Place all the ingredients for the cupcakes, except the marshmallows, into a bowl, and use an electric whisk to beat for around a minute, until the mixture is light and creamy 

2) Stir in the marshmallow pieces and divide into a cupcake tin, lined with paper cake cases

3) Bake on 180 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes, or until risen and just firm to the touch. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool

4) To make the topping, place a third of the marshmallows with half of the double cream into a small saucepan, and heat very gently until the marshmallows melt. Place into a bowl and leave to cool

5) Whip the remaining cream in a bowl until just holding its shape. Stir in the marshmallow cream and remaining marshmallow pieces, then pile on to the cakes.

6) Decorate with extra chopped marshmallow pieces and serve :) (I also added a dusting of icing sugar)

Topping cream should be thicker..
