The new recipe has been created by KFC with Morgan Hipworth, owner of the artisan Melbourne-based bakehouse, Bistro Morgan, as part of the new Kentucky Fried Cookin’ series.

Morgan Hipworth’s savoury cupcakes include mashed potato “cream” and a drizzle of gravy on top, and combines ingredients like yellow cornmeal and creamed corn into a bowl to form the base.

After baking, he decorates the cupcakes using KFC Potato & Gravy and Popcorn Chicken, and it looks rather intriguing to say the least.

Keep scrolling for the full Popcorn Chicken Savoury Cupcake recipe, which makes a batch of 15.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180℃.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and make a well in the centre. Add the remaining ingredients and gradually mix to combine.
  3. Divide between cupcake liners and bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Pour the gravy from the potato and gravy into a bowl. Spoon the remaining potato into another bowl and stir to combine the potato and any remaining gravy.
  5. Transfer the potato to a piping bag fitted with a round nozzle.
  6. Pipe the potato on the top to resemble frosting on a cupcake. Top with 4-5 pieces of popcorn chicken and then spoon on around 1/2 tablespoon of KFC gravy to garnish.
