Rose Cupcakes

Using my old reliable sponge mix I made some delicious rose flavoured and jam filled cupcakes at the weekend, they were so yummy.

My usual base ingredients:

6oz Self Raising Flour
6oz Caster Sugar
6oz Cooking Butter
3 Eggs
Rose Flavouring
Pink Food Colouring
Strawberry Jam


  • Cream the sugar and butter together
  • Sift flour and add a bit at a time alternating with the eggs
  • Leave to whir around in the food mixer for a few minutes while you prepare your cupcake tins
  • Add half a teaspoon of rose flavouring, be careful not to add too much as it's quite a strong flavour and I find it can taste quite soapy if you use too much.
  • Split the mixture in half and add the food colouring to one portion
  • Add a bit of each mixture (pink and white) into the cupcake tins
  • Beat some jam in a separate bowl until runny and then ad approx a tsp into each cupcake case
  • Get a cocktail stick and swirl the mixture and jam together ensure theres no lumps of jam left
  • Bake for approx 20-25mins
  • I topped mine with pink coloured butter cream icing and some delicious Eton Mess bits from Dr Oetker
They were quite tasty and slight variation on my usual cupcakes, they went down a treat with my sister and niece who wanted to eat them all!

    1. It kind of gives a turkish delight taste but it's quite strong so only need a small bit :)

    1. I got it in Supervalu, quite pricey for the size of the bottle, €5 but seeing as you only use a little but then it's worth it. Tesco do it too :)
