Cheese cupcake basically is a cupcake flavoured with cheese, usually cheddar to give it a cheesy taste. Unlike Western cupcake counterparts this is never frosted and designed to look pretty but it is made really simple just with a topping of grated cheese.


  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated (you can also use sharp cheddar for stronger flavour) + more for topping
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 can (400g) condensed milk
  • 120g butter (roughly a bit more than 1/2 cup), cut into small cubes and softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten


  1. In a large bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a separate large beat together butter, sugar and eggs.
  3. Slowly add the flour mixture and condensed milk to the creamed butter and egg mixture while beating in low speed, combine until smooth in texture.
  4. Fold the grated cheese into the batter.
  5. Scoop batter into paper-lined muffin cups to 3/4 full. Top with cheddar cheese and bake in a 180C pre-heated oven for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Top should be golden and crispy.
