30 minutes





No Easter is complete without baking! Jessie Bakes Cakes' has created an easy Easter cupcake recipe with our Banoffee Pie Hot Chocolate and a surprise caramel egg core.

For the cupcake sponge:

180g unsalted butter

180g golden caster sugar

2 large eggs, at room temp

180g self-raising flour

2 tbsp milk

2 tbsp Whittard Banoffee Pie White Hot Chocolate

12 Mini Galaxy Caramel Eggs, place in the freezer for at least 2 hours before using

For the buttercream:

200g salted butter, soft at room temp

400g icing sugar

2 tbsp Whittard Banoffee Pie White Hot Chocolate

2 tbsp milk

For the decoration:

6 Mini Galaxy Caramel Eggs, cut in half

10g dark chocolate

To make the cupcake sponge

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C fan / 180°C conventional. Line a cupcake baking tray with 12 cases.
  2. Beat the butter and golden caster sugar together until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well combined.
  4. Sift in the flour and add the milk. Fold everything together until the mixture is smooth and combined.
  5. Add the Banoffee Pie Hot Chocolate and fold it into the mixture a couple of times being careful not to over-mix.
  6. Fill the base of each cupcake case with a spoonful of mixture. Unwrap the Mini Galaxy Caramel Eggs and place one in the middle of each case on top of the mixture. Top with another spoonful of the mixture so the cases are ¾ full and the eggs are completely concealed.
  7. Bake for 20-22 minutes until risen, golden and springy to the touch (if you lightly press the top of the cupcakes with your finger the sponge should spring back. If it leaves an indent, bake for another 2 minutes). Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.

To make the buttercream

  1. Beat the salted butter in a large bowl until soft, smooth and pale in colour.
  2. Sift in the icing sugar in two stages, mixing between each until smooth.
  3. Banoffee Pie Hot Chocolate and milk until the buttercream is creamy, smooth and combined.
  4. Spoon the buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a large, star nozzle. Starting from the outside, pipe tall swirls of buttercream on top of the cupcakes by holding the piping bag upright and moving in a circular motion inward and upwards.

To decorate

  1. Use a grater to grate the dark chocolate over the cupcakes.
  2. For the finishing touch, top with half a Mini Galaxy Caramel Egg.
