St. Morris Cupcakes

We had a strong typhoon here in Shanghai which forced us all to stay at home! It arrived on Tuesday night and its strong wind and rain has been with us all yesterday. Luckily this morning when I woke up it seemed like it was gone. It is still cloudy here and there is a high possibility that it will start raining again, but it looks like the worst part is gone.

I made this St.Morris cupcakes last weekend for a friend of mine. According to her, they were good. I found them to be good enough for the amount of time that took me to make them, approximately 10 min!

Try them and let me know what you think 🙂

Ingredients (makes 12 cupcakes):

  • Half a package of chocolate cake mix
  • 100 g digestive cookies
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 bag of miniature marshmallow

Crumble the digestive cookies, melt the butter and pour it in the cookies mixing well

then divide the mixture between 12 muffin cups pressing gently to create an even and flat base. Refrigerate while you prepare the filling

Grab the chocolate cake mix

and prepare it according to the package instructions

fill up each muffin cup for 2/3 of its capacity

and bake at 180 C for about 15 min

Now quickly take the cupcakes out of the oven, add on top the marshmallow

and keep baking for 10 more minutes or until the surface gets a nice golden – brown color. Remove from the oven and let them cool down.

Enjoy them for breakfast or as an afternoon snack
