♥ Passion Fruit Yogurt & Orange Marmalade Whipped Cream Cupcakes ♥

This post must credit to my best friend, Alison, who came all the way from Australia to visit me in last Christmas with several package of yogurt mix, with flavors of Passion Fruit, Goji Berries and Boysenberry. If you are not familiar with or haven't heard of yogurt mix, click here. EasiYo is the only yogurt mix brand that are being sold in Hong Kong for the time being. And since I have an EasiYo Yogurt Maker at home, it feels more economical and nutritious to make yogurt myself having to know what I am actually adding to my yogurt. There are tons of different flavors and honestly I can eat a whole bucket in second. I am joking :)

Back to my yogurt cake. This recipe is so easy without the use of any electric nor standing mixer. The batter can be easily whipped up using an old-school wooden spoon and the flavor can be changed by substituting another fruit based yogurt. And for a much super-fast way, you can use self-rising flour instead and omit the teaspoon of baking powder. A last dollop of flavored whipped cream will make you like a genius baker for sure.

Make 6 mini cupcakes
You'll need:

For cupcake
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 medium eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup passion fruit yogurt
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup flavorless oil

For whipped cream frosting
1 cup cold whipping cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
1-2 tbsps icing sugar
1/3 cup chilled bitter orange marmalade jam

How to make passion fruit yogurt cupcakes:
  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Prepare 6 mini cupcakes liners or line a muffin tin with paper cups. Set aside.
    (Alternatively, you can grease the pan with vegetable oil)
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add sugar, eggs, vanilla and yogurt. Mix until combined.
  3. Sift in flour, salt and baking powder. Stir well. Add in vegetable oil and mix well.
  4. Divide batter into prepared cupcake liners. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into centre comes out clean.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool completely before frosting them.
How to make orange marmalde whipped cream:

With all my love <3

  1. Hi Andre,

    Happy 2014!

    You are making your own yogurt... Great job! Yes that these yogurt kits are easily available in Australia... Sadly, I'm too lazy to make my own... Ops!

    Your mini yogurt cupcakes look very light and beautiful.
