Jammy Dodger cupcakes drizzled with sticky strawberry sauce

If you follow me on Instagram then you'll know that I'm a bit of a baking enthusiast that likes to tease you all with my cupcake creations on a weekly basis, apologies. I'm forever getting people ask me for the recipe each time I post a picture wether it be sticky toffee fudge, raspberry margarita or mint aero flavour! So, today I thought that I'd  better share the recipe for what seems to be my most popular batch of cupcakes ever, and that's my Jammy Dodger cupcakes drizzled with sticky strawberry sauce. 

So get your aprons at the ready, dig out your mixing bowl, and.... on your MARKS, GET SET, GOOO! Happy baking, 

The ingredients you'll need: 

•2 large eggs
•115g caster sugar 
•115g self-raising flour 
•115g margarine or butter 
•1/2 teaspoon baking powder

•175g icing sugar, sifted 
•115g butter or margarine

•Strawberry sauce
•12 Mini Jammy Dodgers 


1.) To make cakes, place all of the cupcake ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk them all together until combined. You could use a wooden spoon if you don't have a whisk but this will take longer, and requires more effort! 

2.) Place even amounts of mixture into 6 cupcake cases. There might be a bit of mixture left depending on how big your cupcake cases are! 

3.) Bake on the second shelf from the top of a preheated oven 190 c/170 c fan/gas 5 for around 20/25 minutes. They may take longer than that though so just bake until they're ready. You can tell when they're fully baked by using a cocktail stick/something similar to poke into the middle of the cupcake, if there's mixture on the cocktail stick then they need longer in the oven and if it comes out clean then they're ready! Cool on a wire tray. 

1.) Whisk 115g worth of butter with a whisk for 5-10 minutes so it's extra fluffy and then sift 175g worth of icing sugar into the same bowl. 

2.) Combine the icing sugar and butter together and whisk for a further 5 minutes. 

3.) To pipe the buttercream onto the cupcakes you'll need to use a piping bag. You can pipe the buttercream on however you want so just choose the nozzle you like best- I used a Wilton 2D for these particular cupcakes. To finish drizzle each cupcake with a generous amount of strawberry sauce and then top with two Jammy Dodgers, as easy as that! 

What do you think to these Jammy Dodger cupcakes? For some reason they remind me of my primary school days, odd. Oh, and as always if you decide that you'd like to give these sweet treats a go then be sure to send me a picture/tag me, I'd love to see!
