Ingredients

Cakes

  • 150g Caster Sugar
  • 150g Unsalted Butter (softened)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 150g Self-Raising Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Milk
  • 2-3 tsp Peppermint extract/flavouring
  • (Optional) Green Food Colouring
  • 100g Dark Chocolate cut into small chunks/Chips

Topping

  • 150g Caster Sugar
  • 150g Unsalted Butter (softened)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 150g Self-Raising Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Milk
  • 2-3 tsp Peppermint extract/flavouring
  • (Optional) Green Food Colouring
  • 100g Dark Chocolate cut into small chunks/Chips
  • 150g Unsalted Butter (softened)
  • 300g Icing Sugar
  • 20-30g Dark Chocolate

Method

  • STEP 1
    Pre-heat Oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6, Line a cupcake tin with 12 cupcake cases and set to one side.
  • STEP 2
    In a large bowl or food processor, beat the softened butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time. You may want to add a little of your flour to stop it curdling, as you add the eggs.
  • STEP 3
    Fold in the remaining Flour and mix well before adding the Milk. Add your Green Food Colouring at this point if you want it. Slowly add your Peppermint Extract/Flavouring, start with 2 tsps and add more to taste.
  • STEP 4
    Add your Chocolate chunks/chips and mix well until evenly distributed. Divide evenly between your cases, filling each one around 1/2-2/3 full. Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins. They will brown slightly on top, should be firm to touch and a skewer should come out clean from the centre.
  • STEP 5
    Whilst you let the cakes cool, make the Buttercream icing by beating the Butter and Icing Sugar in a bowl until well mixed and stiff.
  • STEP 6
    Pipe/Spoon your icing onto your cakes (be liberal!) and then grate your remaining dark chocolate over the cakes.
