Jammy Dodger Cupcakes

The first biscuit I had ever used within a cupcake recipe was the Oreo cupcake recipe, yes it had been done millions of times before but I really wanted to try it, So I thought… Jammy Dodger Cupcakes :)

The Oreo cupcakes were really was yummy!!! But then I got thinking , what other biscuits could i try……….thinking back to childhood when I used to ride the biscuit tin at my grandparents, i remembered a wide selection of biscuits, from shortbread to the staple digestive but no none of then was quite right.

These Jammy Dodger Cupcakes were all a little bland in the sense they did not have anything different about them. Sitting at home looking out the window it suddenly came to me, a biscuit that me and my cousins used to try and make last by coming up with deals on the best way to eat it.

Separating the two half’s carefully, licking the sticky jam out of the love hear shaped middle, crunching the dry biscuit until you reach the centre.

Yes I  have finally decided on todays recipe… its of course the Jammy Dodger Cupcakes!!!

Jammy Dodger Cupcakes! Really Easy To Do!!

Start by using your favourite vanilla sponge recipe, mine is from the Hummingbird Bakery  it is easy to follow, and I have yet to have a problem following it, (did you know about the day i made 400 cupcakes at home from my own single an oven). its fool proof ;-)

Line a tin with 12 cake cases, I like using red to bring out the colour of the red heart but any colour will look fab I’m sure.

Follow your favourite vanilla recipe or use my favourite here.

Place the hot cakes on a wire rack and allow to cool, if I’m impatient I do the next step when there slightly warm as it melts the jam mmmm I’m starving now!

Ok so once the cupcakes are cooled use a knife (some use a apple corer, I haven’t got one) to scope out a small centre from the sponge. Fill the hole with the filling used in a Jammy Dodger which is of course my favourite… raspberry jam. Cover the hole back with the sponge topper you just removed (opps you’ve eaten it haven’t you lol).

Now on to the buttercream, take around 10 jammy dodgers and blend them in to small crumbs, set aside in a bowl. Use the vanilla buttercream recipe to whip up a nice smooth consistency, now slowly stir in them yummy crumbs to add some texture. Now I used a whole Jammy Dodger on top to finish off my cupcake ;-) but i have since heard of mini dodgers that could also look cute and work, although i a m sure you would need a few packs.

TIP: Put the whole jammy dodger on top of the frosting just before serving, after all no one wants a soggy biscuit yuck – and I want these Jammy Dodger Cupcakes to be the BEST!!

The next biscuit that will be used  in a cupcake recipe will be?? …… suggestions please

    Here to share the love :) LOVE Jammies btw! Great! :)

  4. Rotisserie chicken is always available at the local
    deli and is already prepared, cooked and ready to serve to the family.

    Unfortunately to perform at home one of these recipes is not always easy (living
    in Italy I have some problems in finding all the needed fresh spices).
    Firstly, the greens or leaves should be spread over a salad bowl.

  5. The cooking method of simmering in a pot with vegetables
    not only gives great flavor to the chicken and keeps it very moist, but it also gives the added bonus
    of the water the chicken was cooked in, which of course has been transformed into chicken broth.
    Cajun style cooking originated in France and uses ingredients like bell peppers, lemons, onions, garlic,
    oregano, figs, celery, spring onions and Tabasco and Cayenne peppers.
    That is almost 100 extra calories with the candied version.
