    About this recipe: There are numerous variations on the classic cocktail, but I like the tastier cupcake option! This recipe is from my book 'Special Cupcakes' - see footnote below for more details.

    Ingredients
    Makes: 15 cupcakes

    • For the cupcakes
    • 175 g (6 oz) unsalted butter, softened
    • 175 g (6 oz) light muscovado sugar
    • Finely grated zest of 2 limes
    • 3 large eggs, beaten
    • 175g (6 oz) strawberries, hulled and chopped
    • 140 g (5 oz) plain flour
    • 140 g (5 oz) self-raising flour
    • 2 tbsp lime juice
    • For the lime and rum frosting
    • 115 g (4 oz) unsalted butter, softened
    • 225 g (8 oz) icing sugar
    • Finely grated zest of 1 lime
    • 2 tbsp light rum or lime juice
    • Extra strawberries, sliced, and sugar sprinkles, to decorate

    Method
    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:30min cooling  ›  Ready in:1hr15min 

    1. To make the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas mark 4. Line muffin trays with 15 paper cases.
    2. Beat the butter, sugar and lime zest together until creamy. Gradually mix in the eggs, beating well after each addition. Dust the strawberries with a little of the plain flour and stir into the creamed mixture with the rest of the plain flour, the self-raising flour and the lime juice.
    3. Spoon into the paper cases and bake for 20–25 minutes or until a skewer pushed into the centre of one of the cakes comes out clean. Cool in the tray for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
    4. To make the frosting, beat the butter until creamy. Sieve in the icing sugar, a little at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the lime zest and rum or lime juice.
    5. Spread the frosting over the cupcakes and decorate with strawberry slices and sugar sprinkles.
    6. Decorate the cupcakes just before serving or the strawberry slices may leak juice that will melt the sugar sprinkles.

    Tip:

    Decorate the cupcakes just before serving or the strawberry slices may leak juice that will melt the sugar sprinkles.
