Jammie Dodger Cupcakes

I felt like experimenting a bit this weekend with my cupcake baking and after excitedly noticing that mini jammie dodgers were on offer at the local supermarket I decided that Jammie Dodger Cupcakes were on the menu this weekend!

I used my favourite, fail safe vanilla cupcake recipe from the Love Bakery book (honestly, it works fantastically well every time!) and then hollowed out the centre of each cake with an apple corer. I then filled the centre with smooth raspberry jam. The cupcakes were topped with vanilla butter cream that was swirled with raspberry jam, a sprinkling of shortbread and a mini jammie dodger.

I sent Karl off to work with the majority of the cakes - I am desperately trying to lose a bit of weight since my all in' holiday to Crete so don't need the temptation (apparently they got a big thumbs up though!).

I did keep one for myself which I tucked into as my reward for visiting the dentist this afternoon. I feel like I achieved something this afternoon (not just visiting the dentist..yuck!) but I actually drove on my own to get there! This is a huge thing for me (I'm terribly nervous!) and apart from a kamikaze child riding her bike out infront of me and a mum with a car full of kids nearly going into the back of the car it all went rather smoothly.

Hope you guys all had a fab weekend!


  1. What sweet cupcakes! Yum, they look supertasty. Well done for your drive, it does get better. I was a nervous driver to start with but it wears off. x

  2. Awe - they look lovely! Love the cute mini cookies too! And well done for the dentist visit and driving there too, reckon you deserve more than one cupcake for that ;0)

  3. How great - a cake and a biscuit at the same time. I love jammy dodgers so this is on my hit list.
