These white chocolate spelt cupcakes are topped with rich white chocolate frosting.

It often surprises me how easy it is just to swap out regular flour for spelt flour. You would never know these white chocolate spelt cupcakes were made with anything other than regular flour. Sometimes, spelt flour can add a nuttiness, which is certainly true with wholegrain spelt flour but in cakes, it produces something just as light and fluffy as any other cake you might eat.

These white chocolate spelt cupcakes have a light, sweet, sponge and are topped with a rich, white chocolate, cream cheese buttercream frosting. I made them at Easter (hence the eggs on top) but they could be enjoyed any time. 

Making cupcakes doesn’t come any simpler than these, even if melting a little white chocolate is required. You don’t need the frosting, either – they taste amazing on their own, perhaps with a sprinkling of icing sugar.
