Salted Caramel & Tablet Cupcakes

You probably guessed by now but salted caramel is one of my favourite things in the world to eat. I could literally eat it out of the jar, however it's not the healthiest thing! These Cupcakes have a vanilla buttercream and drizzled in salted caramel with pieces of Scottish tablet.

Ingredients
  

Scottish tablet

  • 200 ml Condensed milk
  • 75 ml Milk
  • 225 g Light brown sugar
  • 60 g Butter

Cupcakes

  • 125 ml Vegetable oil
  • 250 ml Milk
  • 400 g Self-raising flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Salt

Buttercream

  • 500 g Icing sugar
  • 250 g Butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100 g Salted caramel

Instructions
 

Scottish tablet

  • Place all the ingredients in a pan and bring to the boil
  • Continue to boil the mixture constantly stirring to stop it catching on the bottom.
  • When the sugar reaches soft ball temperature of 115°C remove from the heat and continue to whisk.
  • Once the texture turns matte, pour in to a lined tin and leave on the side to cool, before placing in the fridge.

Cupcakes

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C / 160°C fan/ gas 4 and fill a 12 muffin tray with cases.
  • In a bowl, beat the eggs for a couple of minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the milk and the vegetable oil, beat until just combined then add the caster sugar and whisk until you have a smooth batter.
  • Fold in the sieved self-raising flour and salt. You don't want to over mix the mixture as this can lead to a muffin with a tough texture.
  • Split the mixture between the 12 cupcake cases, but don't fill above ¾ of the case.
  • Place in the oven to bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the middle of each cake comes out clean. Then place on a wired cooling rack.

Buttercream

  • In a bowl, mix together the butter and icing sugar. Once combined together add in the vanilla extract and mix it through.
  • Place the buttercream into a piping bag, and pipe around the top of the fully cooled muffins.
  • Then pour over the salted caramel sauce and place bits of broken tablet on top.
