Filipino Cheese Cupcakes

Sorry! I ate my words!

I said I will not bake for the month of November… but this is an exemption because these yummies were baked by request. Of course, I had the opportunity to eat some. Ohhh! I did not eat too much. I am still disappointed with not losing any pound for a week (or I think two). So I will not indulge.


This has been posted in May – as you can see in the comments below – but I was so much happier when I baked this couple of days ago as they were bigger just like the way I remember it. I was arguing with my brain if these should be called cupcakes or muffins. Anyway, they can still fit into tea cups so they can still be called cupcakes.


Aren’t they beautiful? I love them with more cheese so I added another half cup of cheese to the below recipe to make it 1 1/2 cups. Okay, so I baked 12 muffins and on the next day, I baked another 12. Really, I just baked this by request.


Okay! I also missed this so when I was told to bake, I said ‘SUUUREEEEE!’.


Cheese Cupcake has been a favorite in our school during break time. I always had this and even bought some to bring it home. It’s been eons years since I have graduated from grade school and I just missed eating this. Good thing I found a recipe from My Bright Yellow Kitchen and saved it for my baking experiment.

This is something that reminds me of my grade school days.
