Ice Cream Cupcakes | Celia's Saucer

A recipe for ice cream cupcakes with sprinkles

Sometimes, you just have to make your own summer.

If you're short of an ice cream van, these little cupcakes are just the ticket. Admittedly not as cold as an actual Mr Whippy, they're still a real treat and a bit of a table talker. 

Plus, they're really ruddy easy to make.

Recipe from Good to Know

Ingredients
12 wafer cup cornets
125g (41/2 oz) unsalted butter, softened
125g (41/2 oz) caster sugar
1 vanilla pod, cut in half and seeds reserved
2 eggs
125 g (41/2 oz) self-raising flour
3 tbsp milk

To decorate
1 quantity buttercream Get the recipe
multi-coloured sugar strands
4 Flake bars, each cut into 3 lengths

Equipment
disposable piping bag
large star nozzle


Preheat the oven to 190/Gas Mark 5.

Stand the cornets in a 12-hole muffin tin − one in each muffin hole.

Whisk the butter, sugar and vanilla seeds together using an electric hand whisk or beat with a wooden spoon until pale and creamy. Gradually whisk in the eggs until just combined. Add the flour and milk and whisk again until combined and fluffy.

Divide between the cornets and bake in the oven for 20−25 minutes until golden and risen. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to go cold.

Put the buttercream into a piping bag with a large star nozzle. Pipe a large swirl, just like a Mr Whippy, on to the top of each cupcake.

Scatter over the sugar strands and finish each with a piece of Flake or cherries.
