Strawberry Yogurt Cupcakes



What happen to you when you learned that you are going to have visitors at your home in few hours? And you have nothing to serve them with tea? Of course I have to think of something to make quick with whatever I have at my house at that moment. I found some strawberry yogurts that I bought for my girls in the fridge and my mind was set. I whipped this up in as little time as possible as this recipe only required a hand whisk and a big bowl. The end result was some soft and moist strawberry yogurt cupcakes. This recipe gave me 17 cupcakes.



Ingredients:

(A)
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup sugar

(B)

  • 3/4 cup strawberry flavored yogurt
  • 3 large eggs, whisk
  • 2 Tbsp. whole milk
  • 1 tsp. imitation strawberry extract
  • A drop of red coloring
  • 1/2 cup canola oil



Method:

1. Preheat oven to 350'F. Place paper cups in the muffin pan.

2. In a big bowl, add in (A). Whisk to combine.


3. Then, make a hole in the center and add in (B). Whisk and blend until incorporated.


4. Lastly, scoop the batter into each paper cups until 3/4 full.


5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Store in air-tight container in the refrigerator. It's nice and soft eaten cold too. Or just let it rest for 5 minutes at room-temperature before consuming.

SIG, this one doesn't really need a lot of arm power, basically just stir and mix. The steamed cake one really needs to use the machine. ;)

Yes Sonia, they said it was nice, so I gave them some to take home. :)

LOL Daphne!

Thanks SP. :)

YY said...

Really nice pinky cupcake :)
I'm new in "baking", and one stupid question to ask. "Is it ok to bake cupcake without the muffin tray? "

Little Corner of Mine said...

Hi YY, unless your cupcake paper is very strong and can hold the batter without changing shape. Then you can use without the muffin tray.

Hi Ching,

Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes. I have tried this recipe yesterday, but I not too sure on the grams conversion. Hope you could confirm if I have converted them right:

Flour - 192g
Sugar - 200g
Oil -170g
Yogurt - 255g

I am confused with the different sets of conversion tables in the website, giving different conversion. I hope to get it right so that I will not have problem for my future measurement. Also, for the 3 large eggs whisked, am I right to gently beat it with a hand whisk?

I am new to you blog, and hoping try more of your goodies...

Thanks for your attention and hope to hear from you.

Regards
Ivy

Hi,

May I know what sugar are you using - castor sugar or fine sugar?

Thanks for sharing.

Little Corner of Mine said...

Hi Anon, it's castor sugar unless stated otherwise.

corinna said...

I would like to try this strawberry cupcakes. Can I substitute whole milk and strawberry extract with strawberry fresh milk? How much strawberry fresh milk should I use?

Little Corner of Mine said...

Corinna, use 2 Tbsp + 1 tsp. of strawberry milk.

Fang Fang said...

Hi,

Nice to find your blog. Have tried to make strawberry cupcakes as stated on your blog. However, my cupcakes turned very sticky & not fluffy.
Fyi, I used marigold strawberry yogurt.

Any suggestion or advice? Thanks a lot!

Little Corner of Mine said...

Hi Fang Fang, this cupcake is not the fluffy type, just soft (I enlarged the pic. of the inside of the cupcake right? If yours look the same then you got it right) and the top would turn sticky on the second day.
