Yeah. It’s me. Again.
How are you?
No tutorial for today though. But I am going to share something sweet, nice and totally irresistible. Hey, I am not sharing me, okay? I am sharing these cheese cupcakes. Aren’t they rad? I got the recipe from my new friend Barbie of Barbiekins.com Hello Barbie!
It’s actually her mom’s recipe. Like Ma, Barbie’s mom has kept a treasure chest of recipes that I’m so sure are no-fails, always perfect and sure fire hits. Just like these cupcake bars… erm… cupcakes I mean. Yup, I do not have an 8×8 cake pan as the recipe called for but I do have some cupcake pans tucked away somewhere [insert *wink* here] so cheese cupcakes it is.
Thanks Barbie and Barbie’s mom! I must say I can’t wait for the cupcakes to cool down. I grabbed one and ate it right away. Okay, that’s not what happened, it was more like… oops, oops ouch (that was me holding the cupcakes in my left then right hand), then bite and chew. Which I repeated until I finished two cupcakes. It was that good! Soft, crumbly, savory and sweet at the same time. The only regret I have is that I didn’t put enough cheese topping. I’ll definitely smother it with cheese the next time.
What you need:
2 c all-purpose flour
1 c sugar
1/2 c butter, softened
1/2 can condensed milk
1/2 c grated cheese plus more for topping (you can use any kind, but I’d recommend good ol’ Cheddar)
What to do:
Preheat oven to 175C. Grease and flour 8x8in pan or a bigger pan, if you have one. I don’t. Haha.
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Mix in flour, alternating with the milk, starting and ending with the flour. Fold in cheese and mix just until incorporated.
Pour batter into prepared pan until 2/3 full. Bake for 25 minutes, remove pan from oven and sprinkle top with grated cheese. Return pan to oven and bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until sides and cheese topping are slightly brown. I baked mine for around 15 minutes, topped with cheese, then baked again for 5 minutes.
Cool on wire rack for about an hour before cutting.
