Recipe (makes 10 cupcakes) 


  • 70 gr butter 
  • 0.75 dl caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 dl plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 0.75 dl whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
  • 104 gr Rolo (for the mixture 14 pieces & decoration 6 pieces)

Vanilla Frosting

  • 500 gr (4 cups) icing/confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 150-160 gr (10 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C (325 degrees F) Gas 3. Place 10 paper cases onto 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.  Add the milk and continue mixing for a couple more minutes until the mixture is smooth. Cut the Rolo pieces into smaller pieces and add them into the mixture.  Continue to whisk until everything is just incorporated.

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

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

Leave the muffins to cool slightly in the pan before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Beat the icing/confectioners’ sugar and butter in a freestanding electric mixer with a paddle attachment (or use a handheld electric whisk) on medium-slow speed until the mixture comes together and is well mixed. Turn the mixer down to slow speed.

Combine the milk and vanilla extract in a separate bowl, then add to the butter mixture a little at a time. Once all the milk has been incorporated, turn the mixer up to high speed. Beat until the frosting is light and fluffy, at least 5 minutes. The longer the frosting is beaten, the fluffier and lighter it becomes.

Pipe the frosting on top of the cupcakes and decorate with cut Rolo pieces.
