Banoffee Cupcakes

I thought it was about time that I dipped back into my favourite baking recipe book, Cake Days by Hummingbird Bakery and so today I tried my hand at their banoffee cupcake recipe.

Rather stupidly I didn't thoroughly check the recipe before I began and assumed that the topping would be a variation of their usual yummy frosting. However, the topping is in fact a homemade caramel custard mixed with whipped cream which is completely delicious but a little time consuming. (Don't get me wrong, it's utterly worth it but I was restricted with time!) I'd never made custard from scratch before so I wasn't at all confident but it's much easier than I thought.

Here is the finished product! I have to say I'm rather proud.

The recipe makes around 16 but I halved it because there are only two of us in the house this week and my cake intake is far too high!

You can find the recipe in Cake Days which can be bought here. Happy baking!
