Mojito Cupcakes!

Mojito cupcakes! 

Excuse the measurements - I work in an old fashioned way - from my mums recipes! Therefore they stick in my head like they were originally written in the 1970's! 

  •  4oz slightly salted butter 

  • 4oz plain flour 

  • 4oz caster sugar 

  • 2tsp baking powder 

  • 2 large free range/ organic eggs 

  • zest of one lime 

  1. Heat the oven to 180 degrees. 

  2. Bung the whole lot into a mixer & mix for about 3-4 minutes (none of this creaming nonsense for me!) 

  3. Line 12-16 muffin/cupcake tins with cupcake/muffin cases. 

  4. Put 2 mini ice cream scoops of mix into each case. 

  5. Pop them in the oven & bake for 15-18 minutes. 

  6. Take out of the oven, once baked & place on to a wire rack to cool. 


  • 500grammes of slightly salted butter 

  • 1lb of icing sugar 

  • 1 table spoon (or 2 ... to taste) Tequila 

  • 4 shredded & diced mint leaves 

  • 1 table spoon lime juice 

  1. Put it all into the mixer & beat for a good 5 minutes until it's lovely & whippy & soft! 

  2. When the cakes are cool, pipe the buttercream frosting onto the cupcakes. 

  3. Finish with a wedge of lime, roll in granulated sugar & pop in a straw!
