Chocolate Teacake High-Hat Cupcake Recipe | Cupcake Jemma

These are kind of a cross between a regular high-hat cupcake, a Tunnocks Teacake and a Wagon Wheel! 3 winners rolled in to one! As with all seemingly fiddly recipes, it’s totally worth the hard work and effort.

90g digestive biscuit crumbs
2 tsp golden syrup

75g chocolate chips
175g plain flour
30g cocoa powder
185g caster sugar
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
Pinch of Salt

1 ½ lg eggs (2 small?)
120ml cold coffee
120ml buttermilk
105ml vegetable oil

Raspberry Jam (jarred or home-made)

3 lg egg whites
260g caster sugar
7 tbs Golden Syrup (or corn syrup)
¼ tsp cream of Tartar

    I NEVER write any comments, but now I just HAVE TO. I'm making these right now (just put the cakes in the oven) and I'm already blown away. I baked A LOT of Cupcakes and Muffins over the years but this batter is the best and tastiest one I've ever come across. I can't stop scraping the sides of the bowl. I don't know how this can become even better when everything is assembled. Oh my goodness.

    This has probably been asked already. How does caster sugar convert to plain granulated sugar in volume or weight?

  31. good vibes says:

    wow yum

  32. LizTheFlyingDutchman says:

    I just made these, and except for the fact that I forgot to put the chocolate chips in the batter, it's was a totally doable recipe with an amazing result! I'm in love! Does anybody have a purpose for the left of fluff? I have some left, and I don't want to throw it out, but there is no way i can just eat it like that even though that's my first reaction, but I can't eat every thing I bake or have left over. My skin has trouble staying clear as it is.. But what to do with the leftover fluff?

  33. Hugh mckeown says:

    My daughter was wondering if anyone could answer her question about the marshmallowy meringue icing thank you

  34. Arief Budhi Prasetyo says:

    Can I substitute veg oil with melted butter/margarine?
    If it's not, why/what would happen?
    I mean, butter will be tastier, right?
    Thx, Jemma.
