for the recipe Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

For the Cupcakes:

115 g margarine , softened
115 g light brown sugar
2 medium eggs , beaten
100 g plain flour
15 g cocoa powder
1 ½ tsp baking powder
2 ½ ml Queen Madagascan Vanilla Extract (0.5 tsp)
50 g milk chocolate chips

For the Icing:

100 g unsalted butter
165 g icing sugar
25 g cocoa powder
3 ¾ ml Queen Natural Peppermint Flavouring Extract
Dr. Oetker Polka Dots




Preheat the oven to 190°C (170°C Fan). Line 10 cup cake tins with brown Cupcake Cases. In a mixing bowl, beat the margarine with the sugar until pale and creamy-light in texture. Stir in the Vanilla Extract.


Gradually whisk in the eggs, then sift the flour, cocoa and Baking Powder on top. Add the Chocolate Chips and using a large metal spoon, carefully fold the dry ingredients into the eggy mixture.


Spoon into the Cupcake Cases and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 16-18 minutes until risen and just firm to the touch. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.


For the icing, place the butter in a bowl and beat until soft. Gradually sift and beat in the icing sugar and cocoa powder to make a smooth, creamy icing. Add Peppermint Extract to taste.


Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a 1cm star nozzle and pipe a generous peaked swirl on top of each cake. Decorate with Polka Dots before serving.
