These are, by far, the most decadent white chocolate cupcakes I’ve ever had. They’re deliciously moist, light and fluffy. The icing is to die for. The overall deliciousness probably has something to do with the fact that both the cake and the icing have melted white chocolate in them. They’re a total crowd-pleaser, aaaand they’re pretty straight forward to make as well. Fire away!


For the cupcakes:

1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1/3 cup butter
¾ cup sugar
2 large eggs
115 g white chocolate
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup + 1 tbsp milk

For the Icing:

230 g cream cheese
2 tsp vanilla essence
56 g white chocolate
6tsp milk
4 – 6 cups icing sugar


Preheat oven to 180°C.

Mix the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one by one and mix well.

Add the melted chocolate and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients. Bake for 20 – 22 minutes.

To make the icing:

Mix the cream cheese and butter together. Add chocolate, vanilla and milk. Finally, add icing sugar until it reaches the desired consistency. Fill a piping bag with the icing and ice liberally.

Optional: To finish them off, try grating some chocolate over them or topping them with chocolate shavings. Yum!
