Halloween Cupcakes

Here's an easy peasy cupcake recipe for the kids to make, they'll need just a little help from you with melting the butter and popping them in and out of the oven. They're super quick and yummy! We made some caterpillars in dirt on the holidays and I thought if you add grubs instead of sweet caterpillars they would be awesome for halloween...

Halloween Cupcakes

2 Cups Self Raising Flour

3/4 cup caster sugar

3/4 cup milk

2 eggs, beaten

125gms butter, melted, cooled

1 teaspoon vanilla essence


40 grams butter, softened

2 cups icing sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa

2 tablespoons warm water approx

Milo for decorate

sour worm lollies to decorate

Line a patty pan tray with paper liners

Stir the flour and sugar together into a bowl

Add vanilla to milk

Add milk, eggs and butter to flour mixture and stir until smooth

Spoon into patty pan liners (about half full)

Bake at 180 degrees for 12-15 minutes

Cool on a wire rack before decorating (or eat while warm!)

Makes about 12 cupcakes

For Icing

Mix the softened butter with the icing sugar and cocoa and add water a little at a time as needed to make a soft spreadable consistency. Ice the top of the cakes and dip the cake into the Milo to create the 'dirt' add sour worms to each cupcake. Enjoy!

Happy Halloween!

ps.. If there's a few allergies in your could use Gluten free flour, replace sugar with Stevia, replace butter with nuttelex and milk with soy, almond or coconut milk. You can also use wholemeal flour rather than white flour. You can also add yummy things like cocoa to make chocolate cupcakes, raspberries, chocolate chips, colouring etc.
