Peach Melba Cupcakes

Refreshing cupcakes with a fruity substance - a peachy sponge and raspberry filling!

My sister asked me to make these for a Bake-sale she was having at work, in honour of Australia Day. So it felt only right to make something sweet with a dedication to an Aussie. 

The traditional Peach Melba was invented around 1892 by a French Chef to honour the Australian Soprano Nellie Melba. Her voice must have been outstanding to have a whole dessert named after her! Said dessert was made up of sliced peaches, raspberry sauce and vanilla ice-cream. Perfect for a hot summer's day and perfect in a cupcake formality.

Check out my other cupcakes for more inspiration!

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 18-20 minutes
Serves: 14 cupcakes


200g Self-raising flour
200g Caster sugar
200ml Soya milk + 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
75g Vegan butter
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
4 peaches, peeled, pitted and chopped in small cubes
Raspberry jam
200g Vegan butter
400g Icing Sugar
1 tbsp soya milk
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 Peach sliced optional
14 raspberries optional


✿Preheat your oven and line a cupcake tray with cases. May have to do this in batches.
✿Have your peaches ready to go before doing anything else. Add the ACV to the soya milk and let sit for a few minutes. 
✿Cream the butter and sugar together and then add the soya milk and vanilla extract to the bowl and mix.
✿Sift in the flour, baking soda and salt and fold gently to create a batter. Fold in the cubed peaches and the using spoons, evenly add cake batter into the cupcake cases. 
✿Bake for about 20 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tray before removing.
Make the buttercream. Beat the butter for about 5 minutes until creamy. Add icing sugar gradually until fluffy and pale. ✿Add the vanilla and then add the milk if buttercream too thick. Place into a piping bag.
✿Once the cupcakes have cooled, core out the centre of each, and fill with a teaspoon of jam. 
✿Pipe a swirl of buttercream onto each cupcake and top with a sliced peach and raspberry. Enjoy!




  1. This post is a good example of how to make a good cupcake. The cupcake itself was good, but the frosting was absolutely gorgeous. It was pink, fruity, sweet and creamy and love to check university assignment help to learn more tips to improve our work quality. The cake was also really nice. It’s one of those cakes that you’ll want to make again and again. This is a recipe from the cookbook
