Lyle's® Babycino Cupcakes

  • For the cupcakes
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 level tsp instant coffee
  • 110g unsalted butter, cubed, softened
  • 25g Lyle’s Golden Syrup®
  • 125g Tate & Lyle® Light Soft Brown Sugar
  • 125g self-raising flour
  • 25g cocoa
  • 2 large eggs
  • For the topping
  • 3 level tsp instant coffee
  • 2 tbsp boiling water
  • 4 tbsp Lyle’s Golden Syrup®
  • 310ml double cream
  • Cocoa, to dust

Preheat the oven to 180°C/Fan 160°, Gas 4.

Heat the milk until boiling and stir in the coffee until dissolved.

Combine the butter, Lyle’s Golden Syrup®, Tate & Lyle® Light Soft Brown Sugar, flour, cocoa and eggs with the coffee mixture in a bowl. Beat together with an electric whisk for about 1 minute until soft and creamy.

Divide the mixture between the paper cases and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 18-20 minutes until well risen and they spring back when lightly pressed with a finger.

For the topping, dissolve the coffee in the boiling water then stir in the Lyle’s Golden Syrup®.

Transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool. Peel off the paper cases, lightly poke all over with a fine skewer, then push the cakes down a little into the coffee cups. Drizzle over the coffee syrup mixture and leave to soak in for a few minutes.

Lightly whip the cream in a bowl until soft peaks form. Spoon on to the cakes and, using a small palette knife, lightly spread the cream to the edges of the cups. Spoon a little cocoa into a small sieve, place the coffee stencil on top of the cream and lightly dust with the cocoa. Repeat with the rest of the cakes, place on coffee saucers and serve.
