Toffee cup cakes

Hey there!

Yesterday I promised to put the recipe of the cup cakes so here it goes!
I made the icing the previous day because it needed to be in the fridge overnight.

12 small cup cakes
For the icing:
  • 2dl brown sugar
  • 2dl cream
Measure the ingredients in a saucepan and heat the mixture until it starts to boil. Leave it to cool down and put it in the fridge overnight.

For the dough:
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 3 dl flour
  • 50 gr melted butter
  • 1 dl sugar
  • 1 dl milk
Foam the eggs and the sugar. Combine the dry ingredients ( flour and baking powder ) and melt the butter. Add the milk and the melted butter in the egg-sugar foam. In the end sieve the flour into the mixture. 
Put the cup cakes in the oven for about 15 minutes on 200 degrees. Leave them to cool down.

Take the icing from the fridge and whip it till it has this creamy texture.

When the cup cakes have cooled down apply the icing on top and voilà! For the decoration you can use nonpareils :)
I would have added some peanuts to the dough to balance the taste a bit...oh well, next time! :)
