Raspberry Cheesecake Cupcakes

Raspberry Cheesecake Cupcakes :: www.scarletscorchdroppers.com

  Miniature cheesecakes, bursting with raspberry freshness and finished with a hint of white chocolate. I'm sorry its been a little while since I've posted a new recipe - Andy came back from Hong Kong for a visit and we spent two weeks enjoying every last minute of sporadic sunshine. We've had a throughly British summer time, visiting Whitby, exploring the Isle of Wight. Drinking lots of cider, getting plump on cream teas, and debating the merits of Northern versus Southern fish and chips ...

Rocky Road Cupcakes

Rocky Road Cupcakes :: www.scarletscorchdroppers.com

  Incredibly moist fudgy chocolate cupcakes, topped with irresistibly creamy chocolate buttercream, and all your favourite rocky road toppings. Marshmallow, chocolate chips, biscuit; all the best bits of Rocky Road in a delicious cupcake!  In the summer holidays while I was in my early secondary school years, my friend Rooby used to cycle around to visit regularly. We would spend our days watching appalling television, and drinking endless diet cokes. A terrible display of teenage sloth. From ...

Cookie Butter Cupcakes

Cookie Butter Cupcakes :: www.scarletscorchdroppers.com

Spiced caramel cupcakes, packed with speculoos cookie butter. Topped  with a swirl of cookie butter buttercream, and delicious chocolate covered lotus cookies. These cupcakes will keep you coming back for more!  This jar of cookie butter has been sitting in my larder for the last couple of months, just waiting for a purpose. It was an impulse buy one day in Sainburys. I hadn't even planned to go anywhere near any baking supplies. In fact I was probably going in for something far more healthy, ...

{my last rolo} Rolo Cupcakes

rolo-cupcakes-www-scarletscorchdroppers-com

Rich chocolate cupcakes with a gooey caramel rolo centre. Topped with lashings of creamy chocolate buttercream, and finished off with one last rolo. Who would you give your last rolo to this Valentine's Day?  Less than a week until Valentine's Day. What are your thoughts on the day? This ones a true divider isn't it. Some people love the hearts and flowers romance, other people see it as a cringe inducing consumer holiday. Personally i'm a little on the fence. You won't find me out a restaurant ...

Christmas Cinnamon Sprinkles Cupcakes

Brown sugar and cinnamon cupcakes, filled with festive sprinkles, and topped with lashings of cinnamon cream cheese icing.  This will be, rather unbelievably, my last post from the road. In 5 days time we'll get on the eurostar in Paris, and be back in London for lunchtime. It will be over 100 days since we left Hong Kong to fly to Singapore, and in that time we've made it all the way to Berlin overland. I can't quite believe we're in Berlin, a part of our trip that seemed so incredibly far away ...

Almond Mince Pie Cupcakes

Simple cupcakes made with ground almonds and filled with mince meat. A quick and easy alternative take on a Christmas classic, and the perfect way to use up left over mince meat. Happy Saturday everyone! How is your weekend going? We said goodbye to Russia yesterday, and we've made it to the very beautiful Estonia. We arrived into Tallinn in the early hours of this morning. We travelled overnight on the bus from St. Petersburg, hitting the Estonia border at a very antisocial 1.30am. A lengthy 2 ...

After Eight Chocolate Cupcakes

Gooey, minty chocolate cupcakes, filled with chunks of dark chocolate, topped with a rich, silky ganache made from After Eight mints. A perfect christmas treat! Today's post comes to you from a very chilly, snowy Russia. We've hit a new temperature low, minus 28C.... I can officially confirm that means it is very, very, very cold indeed. I'm surprised I've got any fingers left to type with, even wrapped in gloves and wedged tightly into my pockets they were painfully cold today! We've reached ...

Triple Chocolate Cupcakes { for International Chocolate Week}

img_0606

I did have a blackberry and almond crumble slice lined up for you today. It was absolutly perfect for the last of the season's blackberries, or to make use of the ones you've stashed away in the freezer, but i'm very sorry to say i've gone and lost the recipe. Most of my recipes get scribbled down in a little blue notebook. It comes into the kitchen with me, and ingredients and amounts are noted down as I bake. If a recipe needs a rethink or a tweak, the alterations are written in, along with ...

Coffee Cupcakes

img_0141.jpg

As I write this I'm sat perched on a blue plastic chair in a small local cafe by the train station in the Thai railway town of Surat Thani. We left a very wet, windy and grey Koh Phi Phi this morning, and were loaded into a mini bus at the Krabi ferry pier. We're 6 hours in to our 24 hour trip to Bangkok, and 1 hour into our 6 hour wait for the sleeper train that will take us the rest of the way to the capital. We're re-adjusting to the rhytmns of life on the road. The pace is slow whether we ...
