Total Time35 mins
Servings: 12 cupcakes
- 25 g Dairyfree Margarine at Room Temp (Vitalite)
- 25 g Baking block or Dairy free margarine (Stork etc)
- 100-125 g Icing Sugar
- 25 g Granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp Golden Syrup
- 1 tsp Caramel Flavouring
- 2 tbsp Dairyfree Milk (KoKo)
- 50 g Plain Popcorn
- Sea Salt Crystals (optional)
Preheat oven to 170C. and line a muffin tin with cupcake cases.
Cream margarine, sugar and oil together with the caramel flavouring. Fold in the flour/chia seeds mix and a pinch of sea salt, while pouring the dairyfree milk in a little at a time.
Divide between 12 cases and bake for 12-15mins or until a skewer comes out clean.
Beat the margarine and baking block together for a few minutes, until pale and fluffy. It is important that they are both at room temperature before you do otherwise the buttercream splits!
Sift in the icing sugar and whisk slowly into the margarine mixture. It will take a while to come together and may need a teaspoon of dairyfree milk or vegetable oil but keep going it will become fluffy!
