Rolo Cupcakes Recipe

Another Sunday Share is here. If you read my blog you will know i have decided to include “Sunday Share” posts which will include anything from what i have been doing, a general update to baking. This week has been a quiet week so i have decided to share with you my ROLO Cupcakes Recipe which i made this week! These are some of the yummiest cupcakes i have tried!

What You Will Need…

6oz (175g) Self Raising Flour

6oz (175g) Caster Sugar

6oz (175g)  Butter

3 Eggs

1 & half Tsp baking powder

1 Tbsp Milk

2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder

Chocolate Frosting…

(6oz) 175g  Butter

(7oz) 220g Icing Sugar
2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder

Caramel (I used Carnation Caramel)
Salted Caramel Sauce

Now Time To Bake…

  • Mix all cake ingridients apart from Cocoa Powder together until smooth. 
  • Add the Cocoa Powder and slowly fold into the mixture until mixture is fully chocolate coated. 
  • For best cake results spoon mixture in using an ice cream scooper. I usually use muffin cases but you can use normal cupcake cases.
  • Mixture can fill between 12-18 cupcakes depending on case size.
  • Fill cases 3 quarters full.
  • Cook at Gas Mark 4 for 30 minutes. I turn the tray around half way through to ensure cakes are even coloured all over.
  • Whilst cakes are cooking mix the Icing Sugar and Butter together until smooth. Then add the Cocoa Powder and mix well. 
  • Using a thin Potato Peeler or cutter cut out a small hole in the middle of the cupcakes, keep the cake you have just cut out.
  • Fill hole with caramel. Place part of the cut out cake back into the hole to cover over the caramel.


  • Pipe the chocolate frosting onto the cake.
  • Add a Rolo to each cake for decoration.
  • As an added extra you can dribble the Salted Caramel Sauce over the top of the icing. 

These cupcakes went down a treat! Did you catch last weeks recipe:
