Chocolate Salted Caramel Cupcakes

It’s still cold outside, so why not keep warm, bake and eat cake! We love these indulgent Chocolate Salted Caramel Cupcakes.

Chocolate Cupcakes

  • 125 g Butter, (room temperature)
  • 150 g Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 125 g Dark Chocolate, (melted and cooled)
  • 190 g Plain Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 125 ml Milk

Salted Caramel Frosting

  • 250 g Unsalted Butter, (room temperature)
  • 115g Golden Syrup
  • 75g Brown Sugar
  • 250 g Icing Sugar (sifted)
  • Chocolate Sauce (topping)
  • Preheat oven to 180ºC. Line a 12-hole muffin tray with paper cases.
  • Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugar, scraping down the sides of the bowl occasionally, until pale and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the cooled chocolate.
  • Sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Use a large metal spoon or spatula to fold half the flour through the chocolate mixture. Fold in the milk and then the remaining flour mixture until just combined.
  • Spoon the mixture into the paper cases, dividing evenly. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of a cupcake comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes in the tin, then transfer to a rack to cool completely (this will take about 30 minutes).
  • Meanwhile, to make the salted caramel frosting, use an electric mixer to beat the butter, golden syrup, and brown sugar until pale and creamy. Add the icing sugar and beat until smooth and very pale and creamy. Spoon the frosting into a large piping bag fitted with a large 1.5 cm star nozzle or 1.7 cm plain nozzle and pipe swirls of frosting onto each cooled cupcake. Sprinkle each cupcake with chocolate sauce.
