Reduced fat oil spread

50 g

Caster sugar

cup(s), (75g)


1 medium

Lime juice

1½ tbs

Natural essence

3 tsp, (rum)

White self-raising flour

1 cup(s), (150g)

Skim milk

2 tbs

Fresh mint

3 tsp, finely shredded

Light cream cheese

120 g, (1/2cup)

Icing sugar

1½ tbs

Lime juice

1 tbs


1 medium, thinly sliced, cut into wedges

Fresh mint

2 tbs, (24 baby leaves)

Oil spray

2 x 3 second spray(s)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly spray 2 x 12-hole mini muffin trays with oil.
  2. Use an electric mixer to beat the canola spread and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg until combined. Beat in the lime juice and rum essence. Stir in the flour and milk until just combined. Stir in the mint. Divide between the muffin holes and bake for 10-12 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centres comes out clean. Turn on to a wire rack to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the icing, use an electric beater to beat the cream cheese, sugar and lime juice in a medium bowl until smooth.
  4. Spoon 1 teaspoon of icing onto each cupcake. Decorate with lime slices and mint leaves.
