It’s the school cake sale that happens once a term. This time not for our school years, but the reality is that if I don’t bake some cakes my children won’t be able to buy any. I wasn’t intending on baking any this time, but Little S was rather upset that she wouldn’t be able to join in and buy some treats, so I decided to make some anyway.
Everyone loves S’mores, and here we have rich chocolate cupcakes, filled with a roasted melting marshmallow, then topped with vanilla buttercream, chocolate ganache, biscuit crumbs and more marshmallows. Enjoy, preferably in the great outdoors!
S’mores Cupcakes (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, soya-free, sesame-free, vegetarian and vegan)
- 1 cup oat milk
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar

- 3/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 6 vegetarian marshmallows, cut in half
– Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Centigrade/Gas Mark 5
– Fill a cupcake tray with cupcake cases
– Mix together the oat milk, lemon, melted spread and vanilla.
– Stir in the sugar
– Sift in the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate, baking powder and salt.
– Gently mix to form a smooth, very wet silky mix.
– 2/3rds fill the cupcake cases
– Place 1 marshmallow piece in the middle of each
– Bake for 18-20 minutes until a knife comes out clean
– Cool on a wire rack
Vanilla Buttercream (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, soya-free, sesame-free, gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan)
enough to pipe onto 12-14 cupcakes
- 1/4 cup vegetable fat (such as Trex)
- 3/4 cup dairy-free spread (such as Pure)
- 3 cups icing sugar, sifted
- 1/4 cup oat milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
– Whisk together the spread, vegetable fat and vanilla.
– Add the icing sugar, 1/2 cup at a time with a splash of the oat milk, until fully combined and nice and fluffy.
– Spread onto the cupcakes.
– Drizzle with chocolate ganache (melt chocolate, dairy-free spread and a touch of syrup together)
– Sprinkle with biscuit crumbs (I used Lotus Caramalised biscuits)
