Oriental Flair - Ramadan Cupcakes

In the spirit of Ramadan, I will make this a short post - this is not my recipe, I borrowed it from somewhere on the net, and now that I am posting it I can't for the life of me find it again and give credit where it's due (so if this is your recipe I am sorry)...but enough of that, here's the recipe and it's gooooood :)

Tea Rose Cupcakes

90 g butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup self raising flour (or plain flour plus 1 1/2 tsp baking powder + 1 1/4 tsp salt)
2 tbs milk
2 eggs
6-8 tsp jam of your choice (I used mixed berry, go for rose jam if you want to be extra authentic)

125 g softened butter
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
1 1/2 tbs rose water (I added more to taste)
Few drops of red food colour (results in pink icing)


  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees and line tin with cupcake cases.
  2. Beat butter, flour, sugar, vanilla and milk in a food processor until it resembles bread crumbs. 
  3. Add the eggs and beat until pale on a medium to high speed.
  4. Put a spoonful of the mixture in each of the cases ensuring the bases are covered.
  5. Add ½ a teaspoon of jam to each.
  6. Top the cupcakes with the remainder of the mixture.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and cooked.
  8. To make the butter cream beat the butter until pale. 
  9. Add the icing sugar and rose water.
  10. Decorate with butter cream and top with decorations.
