Irish bed and breakfasts always welcome guests with refreshments on arrival. So when you book your stay in a B&B, rest assured that your B&B host will have some tasty homebaking waiting for you, perhaps even some tasty cupcakes!


100g (4oz) softened butter
150g (5oz) self-raising flour
150g (5oz) caster sugar
3 tablespoons of milk
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Butter Icing

100g (4oz) softened butter
225g (8oz) sifted icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of milk

To decorate: Chocolate sprinkles or chocolate curls


1. Pre-heat the oven to 180oC/Fan 160oC/Gas 4. Put muffin cases into a 12-hole muffin tin, to keep a good even shape as they bake.

2. Measure all the cupcake ingredients into a large bowl and beat until blended and smooth. Spoon evenly between the paper cases.

3. Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 20-25 minutes until risen and golden brown. Lift the paper cases out of the tin and cool the cakes on a wire rack until completely cold before icing.

4. To make the butter icing, beat together all the ingredients to give a creamy thick icing, then smooth over the cold cupcakes. Decorate with chocolate sprinkles or chocolate shavings.

Tip: Try adding 2 tablespoons of cocoa power or 1 teaspoon of coffee essence to the butter icing to make chocolate or coffee icing.

Danabel Porridge Bread Recipe

I started making my Porridge Bread about a year ago. It was so popular with guests that I carried on making it. Now, I make it everyday and leave it on the breakfast table for my guests to help themselves. I am always complimented on how tasty it is. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is so easy to prepare, yet so delicious!
