Big happy cupcakes

These sinfully delicious cupcakes will make your Valentine’s day. Whip them up as a perfect love-filled indulgent treat. We love the addition of the Baileys!



250g plain flour

3 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

125g caster sugar

1 medium egg

225ml Baileys

90ml vegetable oil

Chocolate Ganache Icing

300g dark chocolate

200ml Baileys Original Irish Cream

Sprinkles/flowers/hearts to decorate


Preheat the oven to 190°C and line a muffin tin with nine paper cases.

Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, Baileys and vegetable oil. Pour onto the dry mixture.

Stir until just combined and divide between the paper cases. Bake for 25 – 30 mins until risen and golden brown.

Cool completely on a wire rack.

Once cupcakes are cool, melt the chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water.

Remove from the heat and quickly stir in the Baileys. Beat until thickened and cooled slightly.

Pipe ganache over the top of the cupcakes.

Decorate with love hearts, icing flowers or sprinkles. Whatever suits the occasion.
