Tim Tam Pineapple Chocolate Cupcakes

Share the Recipe

It tastes like a triple chocolate fudgy cupcake with a burst of pineapple flavour in the centre and crunchy chocolate-y bits melting out of the frosting. The pineapple filling is such a great addition without having to make any of your own flavored buttercream or a fruit curd.
