Don't you just love a cupcake that is a bit different?  These marshmallow topped and filled cupcakes are just delightful.  My kids are going to love them when they eventually get their hands on them.  There are a couple of steps in this recipe but there is nothing difficult about it at all.  These would make a lovely addition to a birthday party table.

This recipe makes around 8 good size cupcakes but it will depend on the time of your cupcake liner.



120ml full cream milk
120g plain flour
140g caster sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
40g of unsalted butter softened
1 egg
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees.  Line a 12 whole cupcake tin with paper liners.
2. Place all ingredients in the jug, in the order specified, with the kneading blade.
3. Select Pastry Program P1. 30 seconds before the end of the program, stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the jug.
4. When the program is complete, fill each of the paper liners 2/3 full with cake batter.
5. Place the tin on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cake bounces back when touched in the centre.
6. Remove from the oven and allow the cupcakes to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire cooling rack.
7. When completely cool, scoop out a teaspoonful of cake from the middle top of each cupcake.

Marshmallow Filling
16 pink marshmallows
1 teaspoon of unsalted butter.
