Greek Yogurt Cupcakes (or Best Cupcakes Ever)

Monday, August 24, 2009

Best. Cupcake. Ever.

Do I need to say more? These unique cupcakes (from Conversations with a Cupcake) are simply the best cupcakes I've ever made. They're moist, unique, with a hint of lemon, and seriously out of this world with fresh strawberry frosting. Oh and don't skimp on the OIKOS yogurt. Just fork out the $2.49 and thank me later. Go. Bake. Eat. Enjoy.

The ingredients:

3 egg whites
1 egg
1/2 cup butter
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
juice of 1 fresh lemon
1 container (5.3-oz.) Stonyfield Farms OIKOS Honey Greek Yogurt (or other honey Greek yogurt)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 pkg. (3.4-oz.) vanilla pudding mix
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1-1/2 cups flour

In a medium bowl, whip egg whites until stiff. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine egg, butter, and sugar. Beat until well creamed. Mix milk and lemon juice together, then pour curdled milk and yogurt into bowl with sugar mixture. Beat until well-mixed. Add the remaining ingredients (except the egg whites) and mix well. Gently fold in egg whites and spoon into prepared cupcake papers. Bake at 325° for 22-25 minutes. Makes 24 cupcakes.

Now don't forget the fresh strawberry frosting!

That is quite a recommendation. I tried to find Greek yogurt in our FM store and didn't see any. I finally found it in the ethnic (refrigerated) section. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

These look and sound wonderful - I don't think we get that yogurt here in Canada, I'm wondering if the Mediterranean yogurt I use for greek cooking would work?

I didn't even think about that brand of yogurt not being available in some places. In our grocery store it's right next to the rest of the yogurts.

I assume that another brand of Greek or Mediterranean yogurt would work, but look for a honey flavored one in a similar size. You'll have to let me know what you can find and how it turns out, so I can make a note of it on the recipe.

If you can't find that brand--try a natural, honey sweetened one. They may not be quite as thick as greek yogurt, so strain it overnight in a cheesecloth-lined sieve (or just use a thin cotton dishtowel like I do) over a bowl to catch the liquid. It will be really thick the next morning.

I'm going to try this cupcake recipe--after I go strain my Mountain High yogurt!

Those look delicious. I wonder if my store carries Greek yogurt. I'll have to look next time!

Usually we are 50 years behind everyone else in everything, but we do have this Greek yogurt! I typically don't make good cupcakes, but now I will certainly give these a try. I can't want. Love the frosting idea!
