Vanilla Fudge Cupcakes

Vanilla Fudge Cupcakes

I've temporarily (or so I hope) lost my blogging mojo. I took a week off at half term as I was also on annual leave from my day job and quite frankly needed a rest...and I'm currently struggling to get back into it. I've done loads of cooking over the past few weeks but haven't felt the urge to set up my camera and blog any of the recipes - although I wish I had taken some photo's of the Spinach and Sweet Potato soup I made on Monday! I'll just have to make that again I guess.

I thought I'd break myself back in gently with some cupcakes I made a while ago but never got around to publishing. Everyone loves a light and fluffy cupcake with a smooth and creamy butter icing don't they? These yummy Fudge Cupcakes make the perfect after school treat or bake sale offering (Red Nose Day is not too far off!) and are super simple to make. Enjoy!

Vanilla Fudge Cupcakes


  1. The recipe can be easily doubled to feed a crowd.
  2. The un-iced cupcakes can frozen for up to 3 months in an airtight container.
  3. If you don't have any fudge use mini smarties or chocolate chips instead.
  4. Use salted butter in the icing  - I find it gives it a much better taste.

  1. These are absolutely stunning Beth. I seriously need to up my photography game I know, but I'd be over the moon if I'd taken anything as good as these. They sound rather yummy too ;)
