Custard Creams Cupcakes

Emily and I have been in the kitchen baking again (I honestly can't wait till Isabelle is old enough to bake with us too). This time we rustled up some cupcakes based on her favourite biscuits. Custard Creams. I have to admit, I wasn't sure if this was going to work, and did doubt myself a little. I also ended up making them about three times just to get the quantities of ingredients right, but I'm happy to say we finally got it balanced and they tasted amazing. 

As you can see below, Emily loved eating the cake mixture, just look at it all on her face. All children do this right? I'm sure Emily actually prefers the cake mix, to the actually baked cakes, Just like her daddy.

Ingredients (for the cakes)
150g butter
150g caster sugar
3 eggs
125g self-raising flour
65g custard powder

- Preheat your oven to 180°
- Cream together the butter and sugar until it is nice and fluffy.
- add the eggs, flour, and custard powder. Mix together, if the mixture looks a bit too thick, add a tablespoon of boiling water. 
- Divide the mixture into 12 cases.
- Bake for 17-20 minutes.

Ingredients (for the icing)
150g butter (unsalted works best)
300g icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence
25g custard powder

I use my standalone mixter to combine the ingredients to make my buttercream. I do find beating the butter for a little while before adding the icing sugar really helps.

These delicious cupcakes go perfectly with a cup of tea. Emily really enjoyed eating them, just as much as she did making them, and they turned out better than I could have ever expected. I'd love to hear if you recreate this recipe.
