Butterscotch cupcakes


When I started accepting orders for cakes and cupcakes, choco-chip cupcakes, red velvets and chocolate cupcakes were the absolute favorites. But there was one lady who made a special request and asked me if I made any butterscotch cupcakes. I had tasted a store bought butter scotch birthday cake before and knew that my usual baking supply store does sell butterscotch chips (same size as chocolate chips) and also the flavoring. I told her if she was ready to wait till my next market visit, she can have them. Below is the recipe I made and it was an absolute hit! The below recipe makes 12-13 medium sized or 8 large cupcakes.

  • 1 and 1/2 cup plain flour

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 2/3 cup (heaped) sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1/4th tsp salt

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 2 tsp butterscotch flavouring

For whipped cream:


  • 200 gm whipping cream

  • 2-3 tablespoons icing sugar

  • 2 tsp butterscotch flavouring

  • 1/4th cup butterscotch chips - to sprinkle on top
