Amarula Cupcakes.. This is a winner for our South African winter, or any winter especially if you’re homesick!

Perfect cupcake desert or snack for a picnic, braai, or just a dinner with friends. Oh, and it can be doubled/tripled/whatever.  This recipe makes 12 cupcakes


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 115g butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup Amarula
  • 1/4 cup milk


Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
Set aside a 12-cup cupcake tray with cupcake liners.
In a large-ish bowl, cream the butter until smooth.
Add the sugar gradually and beat until fluffy and white.
Add the eggs and mix well.
Add the dry ingredients in two parts, with the milk and Amarula in between.
Now you can spoon the batter into the cupcake liners. They should be about three-quarters full.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the centre of the cupcake comes out clean.

Amarula Butter cream


  • 4 cups icing sugar
  • 125g butter
  • 1/4 cup Amarula
  • additional milk


Cream the butter with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy, about 2 to 3 minutes.
With the mixer on low speed, add the icing sugar and Amarula.
If the icing is not creamy enough, you can add some more milk until it is smooth and creamy

Spread on the cupcakes when completely cooled.
