Nazzy Bakers Biltong Cupcakes 

My love for Biltong started many years ago, as a child growing up in Africa. When we first arrived in Australia, there weren’t many places close by that sold Biltong. In the last few years, South African shops are popping up all over the country, and especially in Brisbane, making it easier to get my hands on this delicious snack.

I’d like to make mention that Protea Foods make the best Biltong I’ve tasted in a long time! So if you would like to try it for yourself, head over to their website and order some: http://www.proteafoods.com/

Today I decided to Combine my love for baking and Biltong to create something truly spectacular! There are two ways to combine the two, ive selected the method below. Please look out for the other method at the end of this blog.

Here’s #howididit

1) I made a quick and easy vanilla cupcake recipe.


2) I chopped up one stick of Biltong into the tiniest of pieces, as shown below:


3) I then combined 3/4 of the Biltong and the cupcake batter.



4) Once combined, I spooned the mixture into black medium sized cup cases, and baked the cupcakes till golden brown at 180 degrees celcius.


5) I quickly whipped up a white Chocolate ganche and using a piping bag, piped the ganache onto the cooled cupcakes.

6) I then sprinkled the remainder of the chopped Biltong over the top, and in true Nazzy Baker style, dusted bronze luster dust and gold  glitter over the top!

The second method, of combining the biltong flavor into the cupcake, is to soak the biltong into hot milk, to infuse the flavour. Once infused, use the milk as per the recipe instructions. This method eliminates the chewy texture of the tiny pieces of biltong in the cupcake.

I hope you have enjoyed this post:)
