  • 1 ½ c self rising flour
  • 2 tbs milk

Frosting ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 to 3 c powdered sugar
  • 3 to 4 tbs maple syrup


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a 12 capacity muffin tin or line the holes with paper cases.
  2. Beat the butter on a high speed until pale and fluffy.
  3. Add the sugars and continue beating on a high speed until fluffy.

  5. Add 2 of the 4 tablespoons of maple syrup to the mixture (you can also drizzle some onto the cupcakes once they are baked).
  6. Slowly add the flour, alternating with the milk, ending with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined ensuring you do not over mix.
  7. Spoon the mixture into prepared muffin tin.
  8. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Brush with the some extra maple syrup if you wish and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  9. To make the frosting, cream the butter until pale.
  10. Add in the powdered sugar and maple syrup gradually. Add powdered sugar until the frosting reaches your desired consistency.
  11. Pipe the frosting onto the fully cooled cupcakes and decorate as desired.
