Jammie Dodger Cupcakes

My Jammie Dodger Blondies are one of the most popular recipes on my blog, so I really wanted to create another Jammie Dodger themed recipe for you all to enjoy! Enter my Jammie Dodger Cupcakes! They are a light vanilla sponge, filled with tasty raspberry jam, topped with a sweet vanilla buttercream and a Jammie Dodger biscuit. Jam and cake go so well together so this really is a delicious combination of flavours! Plus you get a biscuit with your cake which is always a good thing!

How to make Jammie Dodger Cupcakes…

To make the sponge I started by creaming together the butter and sugar, then I whisked in the eggs and vanilla extract.

Then I added the self raising flour and whisked until smooth. I divided the mixture between the cupcake cases, and baked them for 25 minutes until golden.

Once the cupcakes were fully cooled I used a cupcake corer to make a hole in the centre and I filled it with raspberry jam.

I mixed up a buttercream using butter, icing sugar and vanilla extract. I piped it onto the cupcakes, then added a Jammie Dodger biscuit.
