    • 50g butter, softened
    • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 275g honey
    • 2 eggs
    • 125ml buttermilk
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a 12-hole muffin tin or line with paper cases.
    2. In a medium bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in the honey, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter just until blended. Spoon the batter into the prepared tin, dividing evenly.
    3. Bake in preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the tin set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving plate.
    4. Beat double cream in a chilled bowl using an electric mixer until stiff enough to hold a peak. Sweeten with icing sugar if desired. Spoon on top of cupcakes and top each one with sliced strawberries right before serving.

    I make these with whole wheat flour, a little extra milk, and some cinnamon and orange. They have a fine, dense crumb and a perfect "grown-up cupcake" flavor. I like them with a cream cheese frosting.  -  14 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    VERY good! Came out great. I made them in a mini muffin tin and had 42 mini cupcakes! I changed the frosting slightly by adding a package of cream cheese to make it more sturdy/thicker (as per the whipped frosting recipes on here). Added tiny bits of strawberries straight to the "frosting" and they came out fantastic! You can taste the honey in these for sure! Mine ended up like mini strawberry shortcakes.  -  01 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
