This recipe comes with an easy-to-use guide on how to make flavour variations from the same basic vanilla recipe, so it’s perfect if you’re looking for a simple cupcake recipe that’s versatile.
Whether your go-to is a classic chocolate cupcake topped with ganache and filled with sweet, whipped cream or a simple vanilla cupcake filled with caramel and whipped cream, you’ll love these lush sweet-cream-filled versions!
The ultimate hidden veggie cupcakes: honey and carrot cupcakes.
These easy-to-make carrot cupcakes come with a sweet honey pop and are topped with a healthy amount of cream cheese buttercream – the perfect hidden-veg treat!
A chocolate lover’s dream recipe: triple chocolate cupcakes.
Filled with store-bought chocolate mousse and topped with a luscious chocolate ganache, this chocolate cupcake is utter chocolate perfection! You will definitely need to make the ganache ahead of time, to allow it to set so you can pipe it hassle-free onto these chocolate-spiked fluffy cupcakes.
A slightly more technical recipe for those looking for a proper cupcake challenge: lemon meringue cupcakes.
Lemon-infused buttermilk cupcakes filled with tangy-sweet lemon curd and topped with a marvelling swirl of toasted meringue.
