Preheat oven to 160°C. Fill 9-10 muffin holes with paper cupcake cases.

Place all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.  Briefly mix to combine.

Add butter and mix on low for 30 seconds for the mixture to come together. Add milk and beat on low to incorporate, then increase to medium and beat for 30 seconds.

Add egg and vanilla, and beat on medium to incorporate. Finally, increase speed to medium-high and beat for 30 seconds. The mixture should be thick and creamy.

Fill each cupcake case until ⅔ full. Bake for 20 minutes or until risen and lightly springy to the touch. Remove cupcakes and transfer to a cooling rack until completely cooled.

Meanwhile, make the buttercream. Clean and dry the bowl of your stand mixer and add butter. Beat on medium-high for 5 minutes until light and creamy.

Add half the sugar, and mix on medium-low until incorporated. Add remaining sugar, increase to medium and continue mixing to incorporate. Then increase to medium-high and beat for 1 minute.

Add chai spice, milk and salt, and beat for 1 minute. The mixture should be very light and fluffy.

When cupcakes have fully cooled, pipe swirls of buttercream onto each. Sprinkle with chopped dark chocolate and enjoy!


You can swap sugar with coconut sugar or jaggery if you want but by adding these alternative sugar you wont reach white color icing . It will be brown icing in color

If you are  vegan you can use vegan butter which is easily available in New world, Countdown , BinnInn store
