Liquorice and blackberry cupcakes

These liquoirce and blackberry cupcakes have a slight flavor of liquoirce and a strong taste of blackberry which compliment each other. The buttercream is divine, smooth and full of flavor. I piped the buttercream over these buns but a knife can be used also to just spread it on top.


  • 200g Butter
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 125g Blackberries
  • 100g Icing sugar
  • 100g Liquorice
  • 100g Milk
  • 180g Self-raising flour


  1. Simmer the Liquorice with the milk for 10 minutes and leave aside for 30 minutes to infuse.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  3. Melt 100g of butter and mix in the Liquorice milk, honey and eggs.
  4. Add in the flour until well combined.
  5. Place in the mixture into a cupcake tray lined with cupcake cases.
  6. Pop into the hot oven for approx 25 mins until golden.
  7. Meanwhile prepare the icing, simmer the blackberries with 2 tbsp of water, mash the berries and strain.
  8. Next cream the remaining butter,blackberry juice and icing until smooth.
  9. When the buns have been removed from the oven, allow to cool and pipe over the buttercream icing.
  10. To finish place a blackberry on top of each bun.
