Spelt Cupcakes with Vanilla Cream

photos of food 021

A Fancy Schmancy Afternoon; without the price tag!


150 g butter

150 g sugar

2 eggs

200 g spelt flour

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking powder


100 ml cream

1 vanilla pod

1 tsp granulated sugar

revels sweets

Sometimes I feel like having an elegant afternoon, but I have two little darlings who may not have the same idea as myself! Although they love eating the treats, they may well prefer to eat them while running around outside instead! 

Cream the butter and sugar ( I use the kitchen aid, but you could easily use a hand held mixer or work those arms and whip it up by hand ;))

Add the eggs one by one and then the vanilla

Sieve in the flour and baking powder and fold in.

Fill the muffin cases to halfway and bake in the oven for 10 – 12 minutes

Leave to cool on a wire tray and whip your cream. Split your vanilla pod length ways and scrape out the seeds, whip them into the cream and sugar mix. Beat until firm.

Pipe the cream around the cupcakes and add a revel or two on top – you never know which one you’ll get!

  1. I replace white spelt for refined white wheat in most recipes. I think the trick is to add more spelt flour than the wheat recipe suggests, say 25 g more.
    I really hope you enjoy 🙂
