This is a refreshing cup cake to each as it provides a burst on honey to satisfy your sweet tooth. When decorated with swirled icing these cupcakes look delightful and delicious, as they resemble bee hives.

  • 1/2 cup self raising flour
  • 1/4 tsp bi-carb soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 large eff
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk
Honey Icing:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tblsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups icing sugar

Preheat the oven to 180'C fan forced. Line cupcake tray with patty pans and spray with canola oil.

For cupcakes, beat the butter, sugar, honey, egg, and vanilla in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Add and mix in both flours, baking soda, salt, and milk. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, filling each one 3/4 full. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer the cupcakes to a wired rack to cool.

For icing, beat the butter, honey and vanilla in a small bowl until light and fluffy. Add the icing sugar, beating until combined. Spoon the frosting into a zip lock bag and snip the corner. Pipe a spiral 'bee hive' on top of each cupcake. Serve with tea or coffee.
