Cupcakes with Daim Chocolate Topping

I am currently on the return leg of our Scandinavian road trip and travelling back to Oslo today…or I will be, but I did not want the blog to be neglected so here is a recipe from a couple of weeks ago. In my traditional fashion these were made for visiting friends to play the Game of Thrones Board Game, the picture is rubbish as they were already half eaten when I remembered to take a snap, they were also supposed to have frosting but I ran out of butter and no shops are open on a Sunday in Germany so here is my improvised recipe for Cupcakes with Daim Chocolate Topping:


  • 100g of Butter
  • 100g of Sugar
  • 1/2tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/4tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 100g of Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 100g of Milka Daim

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 180C (fan) and putting your cupcake cases into your tin
  2. Cream the sugar and butter together in a bowl until smooth
  3. Then add the baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and flour and mix until crumbly
  4. Add the eggs and whisk until smooth
  5. Pour the mixture equally into your cupcakes cases
  6. Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes
  7. Allow to cool
  8. Once cool, melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water
  9. When the chocolate has fully melted allow to cool a little before spooning equally on top of the cupcakes
  10. Put into the fridge for 15 minutes to set
  11. Then enjoy!

Note: This recipe makes 12 cupcakes

I was not sure about having a chocolate topping but I had to make do, however, these Cupcakes with Daim Chocolate Topping were absolutely delicious and I think I will try thing with some other chocolate varieties!
