Home Sweet Home Bakealong 60: Cinder Toffee Cupcakes

June 11, 2016

The best thing about these is how easy it is to make home-made Crunchie. Sugar and golden syrup + bicarb. I say easy, I failed the first time but not looking at the packet and using cream of tartar. Not pleasant. Anyway, these will be heading to our church’s street party in honour of HMQ’s 90th tomorrow.


As with all the HSH cupcake recipes the main body of the cake is easy and works well. I don’t think I’d ever make them another way now. There’s too much icing but you can freeze it. The cinder toffee is a case of guilding the lily but it’s an easy and quite impressive looking addition. You’ll have loads left over but you can drizzle chocolate over it and make your own crunchie bites.27500888032_8169c2e43e
