Recipe (makes 10-14; it depends on how big the paper cases are)

Toffee sauce (without cream)

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cacao
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 dl golden syrup
  • 1 dl whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon potato flour

Mixture 

  • 75 gr butter
  • 0.75 dl caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 dl plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 ½ dl homemade toffee sauce
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar

Toffee Frosting 

  • 250 gr (2 cups) icing/confectioners’ sugar
  • 80 gr (5 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons homemade toffee sauce

For decoration

  • chocolate sugar strands

Toffee sauce: 

Pour the milk, caster sugar, syrup, salt and cacao into a saucepan.

Let it boil on medium heat for 5 minutes whilst you stir it all the time.

Add the potato flour and continue to stir 5 minutes more.

Remove the pan from the stove and stir in the vanilla sugar and butter.

Allow to cool so the consistency will be good.

Mixture: 

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C.

Place 10-14 paper cases on a baking sheet.

Stir the sugar and butter until fluffy in a bowl.

Add the egg and continue to whisk.

Pour the vanilla sugar, baking powder and flour into the bowl and whisk a bit.

Add the homemade toffee sauce and continue mixing for a couple of minutes more until the mixture is smooth.

Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until two-thirds full.

Bake them in the middle of the oven for 15-20 minutes.

Allow the muffins to cool!

Toffee Frosting: 

Beat the icing/confectioners’ sugar and butter in a bowl until the mixture comes together and is well mixed.

Add the toffee sauce to the butter mixture and beat until the frosting is light and fluffy, at least 5 minutes. The longer the frosting is beaten, the fluffier and lighter it becomes.

Toffee Cupcakes: 

Pipe the frosting on top of the cupcakes and decorate with chocolate sugar strands.

Here come the Toffee Cupcakes again! 😀

Happy Toffee Baking! 😀
