Not too Tricky

140g light muscovado sugar

100g self-raising flour

50g cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

3 eggs

125ml Mr Hugh’s Oil (Buy Now)

(We recommend using an oil from our Sweet Range; Vanilla, Orange, Lemon or Hazelnut Infused Oil)

3 tbsp milk

50g milk chocolate chips

30g pack mini marshmallows


For the icing:

250g butter, softened

1 teaspoon, vanilla extract

600g icing sugar

2 tablespoons milk


Pre-heat the oven to 180C (160C fan or gas mark 4).

Put the sugar, flour, cocoa and baking powder into a large bowl and mix.

Whisk together the eggs, your preferred Mr Hugh’s Oil and milk in a seperate bowl and then stir into the dry ingredients until well combined. Now stir in the milk chocolate chips.

Place the cupcake cases into a 12-hole tin.

Divide the mixture evenly between the cases and bake for 20 mins until risen and cooked through.

Leave to cool for 5 mins then remove from the tin onto a baking tray to cool completely.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and vanilla. Blend in the sugar, a quarter at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the milk, and continue mixing until light and fluffy.

Carefully spoon the icing into a piping bag and swirl around the edge of the cupcakes to create a nest. Then pop a few mini eggs in the middle of the icing to fill the nest and serve.
