Mint Aero Cupcakes

You’re probably thinking “holy shit is this chick still posting rubbish book reviews?” and the answer to that is yes, I am because I love a rubbish book review BUT I’m gonna give ya a wee break and post this absolutely ~amazing~ cupcake recipe instead. Enjoy!

Okie dokie.. these buns went down a friggin’ treat in my house (and my Granny’s house) and I used >>this<< recipe right here. I manage to make 15 (pretty large) cupcakes from this so you can sweeten up a small army with them if you fancy it.

CUPCAKES

You’ll need:

  • 150g of unsalted butter or stork
  • 150g of light brown sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 125g of self-raising flour
  • 25g of cocoa powder
  • 1tsp of peppermint essence
  • 1tsp of vanilla extract
  • 100g of chocolate chips

*side note: because I’m an idiot, I accidentally used regular salted butter for the cupcake mix (oops) and when I say I used ‘vanilla extract’ and ‘peppermint essence’ I really used Madagascar vanilla and American peppermint cuz that’s all I could find. My cupcakes turned out fab so just don’t sweat the small stuff x*

Method:

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C
  • Mix together the stork (or butter in my case lolz) and light brown sugar until they are all light and fluffy
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder, eggs, peppermint and vanilla extract and mix again until it forms a cake mix
  • Fold in the chocolate chips (gently!!!)
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a knife comes out clean

ICING

You’ll need:

  • 150g of butter
  • 300g of icing sugar
  • 1tsp of peppermint essence
  • green food colouring

Method:

  • Mix the butter until it is smooth and slowly add the icing sugar
  • Add the peppermint essence and mix again until fully combined
  • Add your desired amount of food colouring and fold together with a spoon
  • Pipe onto your cupcakes
