Last Rolo Cupcakes

This awesome recipe was contributed by Marjorie’s Kitchen to No Room for Mushrooms, a mushroom-free cookbook with all proceeds going to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.

Preheat the oven to 180degC. Cream 112g butter with 112g sugar, until light and fluffy. Lightly beat 2 eggs together, and gradually add them to the butter and sugar. Gently fold in 85g sifted self-raising flour and 30g sifted cocoa.

Place 12 cupcake cases in a bun tray and place a spoonful of the mixture in each case. Place a Rolo in the centre of each and top with a little more cake mixture, ensuring the Rolo is covered. Bake in the oven for about 15 mins until they spring back when touched in the centre.

When the cakes have cooled completely, beat 280g icing sugar, 125g butter and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract until light and creamy. Spoon or pipe over the cupcakes, and dust with some sifted cocoa powder.
