These delicate cupcakes contain vanilla syrup made with Nielsen-Massey vanilla extract, perfect for special occasions or just to treat yourself!

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4. Line 2 cupcake trays with cupcake cases.

  2. Using either an electric mixer or mixing bowl and whisk, beat the butter and golden caster sugar together until pale and fluffy, then whisk in the vanilla extract. Reduce the whisk speed and slowly add the eggs, along with a tablespoon of the flour to prevent it from curdling. Add in the rest of the flour.

  3. Using either a piping bag or ice-cream scoop, divide the batter between the cupcake cases and place in the oven for 20 minutes, or until lightly golden and firm to the touch.

  4. To make the syrup, place the sugar in a pan with the water. Simmer for a few minutes until dissolved, then take off the heat and set aside to cool. Once cool stir in the vanilla extract.

  5. Remove the cupcakes from the oven once cooked and cool on a wire rack. Then add some sugar syrup to the top of each one.

  6. Once completely cool, make the icing. Put the cream cheese, butter, vanilla and golden icing sugar in a mixing bowl and slowly mix together until light and fluffy. Place in a piping bag and ice accordingly.
