White Chocolate and Raspberry Cupcakes

Greetings from Sydney where we've just had the most amazing dust storm. I drove to the station through a pink dust haze which was both beautiful and kind of spooky all at the same time. I didn't have my camera with me but I'm sure there are stacks of images on the web.

Here are some photos of my latest creation. As you know by now, there are some flavours I just love like rhubarb and passionfruit. Well I also adore raspberries. Sydney is a wonderful place in which to live but not if you love raspberries. I won't tell you how much I paid for the punnet in the photos 'cos you just wouldn't believe me.

I found a recipe for the cupcakes on the Gourmet Traveller website which I heavily adapted to create the beauties below. 

I popped a few raspberries into each cupcake to cut the sweetness and to add a little surprise. I took a cupcake with me when I visited Miss B and her brother Ruin on Sunday. I had to resort to a little bribery to get the photos below - photos first, cupcake second.

I took the rest of the cupcakes into work with me on Monday but kept one at home so I could taste test it. The crushed raspberries in the icing cuts the sweetness as does the hidden raspberry in the cupcake. You could easily make these into smaller cupcakes which would be ideal for a little girl's birthday party or to serve at a baby or bridal shower tea.

Enjoy the rest of the week,



  1. Oh they look delicious! Love how you've shot the stages of making them. The mosaic look is awsome :)

    I made some lemon cupcakes on the weekend - bit of a flop because they stuck to the paper.

    Going to try again tomorrow night with choc chip for a friends birthday.

  2. Good Luck with the choc chip cupcakes.
