Golden Syrup Cupcakes

For 12 cupcakes sized or 6 muffin sized you'll need

  • Cakes:
  • 75g unsalted butter, softened
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 2 level tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 150g self raising flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • Buttercream:
  • 250g Icing Sugar
  • 75g unsalted butter
  • 2 level tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 cupcakes sized or 6 muffin sized
  • 15-20 mins


Preheat oven to 180c (160c fan) or gas mark 4.

Place 12 cupcake cases into a bun tin. Put all of the cake ingredients into a bowl & beat until smooth. Divide the mixture between the 12 cases & bake for 15 mins until golden. Put on a cooling rack whilst you make the buttercream.

Put all of the buttercream ingredients into a bowl (making sure the butter is soft first) & beat until light & fluffy. Either pipe or spread onto the cakes as desired.


I made 6 muffin sized cakes instead & cooked them for 5 minutes longer.
