I’m pretty convinced that I’ve come up with the best way to enjoy your Russian fudge – in a cupcake!
While I’ve seen everything from Russian fudge flavoured yoghurt to milkshakes over the years, I’d never seen a Russian fudge cupcake. This didn’t make sense to me – the fudge has such a sweet, smooth flavour it would be great combined with cake.
I assumed someone in the big online world would agree and have already concocted a cupcake version of this sweet treat, so I started searching around. After 30 minutes or so of fruitless trawling of (what felt like) every corner of the web I came to the conclusion that such a recipe simply didn’t exist – or at least not that I would ever be able to find.
So I took it upon myself to bring this marvellous creation to life. So what exactly is a Russian fudge cupcake? It’s a fluffy, moist and light golden syrup cake, topped with ground Russian fudge icing and topped with Russian fudge crumbs. That’s right, there’s homemade Russian fudge in the icing.
