INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Preheat a fan-forced oven to 160C (320F) or 180C (356F) for a conventional oven. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake liners.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the flour, baking powder, brown sugar and salt. Turn mixer on low speed and allow it to mix for a couple minutes to help everything combine well (alternatively you may do this by sifting the ingredients together). Add the softened butter and let it mix until it resembles a fine sand like texture.
  • Next, add creaming soda, eggs, yogurt, oil and vanilla extract in a large jug and whisk well.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients in a slow and steady stream until no dry ingredients are visible. Scrape down the bowl and mix for another 20 seconds.
  • Fill each cupcake liner 3/4 of the way (using an ice cream scoop to transfer the batter into the cupcake liners makes this a quick and easy process otherwise you can use two tablespoons).
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow them to cool completely on a wire cooling rack before frosting.
  • Core the centre of each cupcake and fill with butterscotch sauce.
  • Add butterscotch sauce to buttercream frosting and mix until well combined. Fit the end of a piping bag with a Wilton 6B top and frost in a swirl. Drizzle with salted caramel or butterscotch. Fit the end of a piping bag with a Wilton 1M tip and frost a swirl on top of that. If your sauce is warm, you may need to wait for it to cool before piping the second swirl of frosting.

Enjoy your butterbeer cupcakes!
