How to make it

  • Preheat your oven to 350F
  • Mix all the dry ingredirnts together in a big bowl.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave and add the beaten egg to it.
  • Add that to the dry ingredients, stirring in the milk and rum until smooth.
  • Zest an entire lime, add half the zest to the bowl.
  • Squeeze in half of the lime as well (keep the other half and its zest for the icing!).
  • Finely chop your fresh mint, and add that to the batter, mixing well.
  • Split the batter between 12 lined cupcake wrappers.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the sides pull away and are golden brown (the tops should be spongy to the touch).
  • When done, remove to a wire rack and wait until they're completely cool before you attempt to ice them!
  • Mojito Icing:
  • Mix the butter and sugar together in a bowl until smooth.
  • Add the rum and lime, mix further until stiff peaks form (add more powdered sugar if necessary).
  • Taste to see if it needs more rum, and add as appropriate.
  • I use a flat knife to spread the icing onto the tops of the mojito cupcakes because a spatula is just too big.
  • Then add a sprig of mint on each to garnish.
