These yummy cupcakes are so easy to make and are a great breakfast treat! I have used Canned Peaches, Fresh Blueberries and Strawberries. Serve with a cup of tea or coffee as a perfect start to your day!
  • 100g Butter
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Greek Yoghurt
  • 2 Eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tsp Orange Zest
  • 1/1/2 Cups Flour
  • ½ Teas Baking Powder
  • ¼ Teas Baking Soda
  • ¼ Cup Milk
  • 2 Cups of Cut Fruit. (I used Canned Peaches, Blueberries and Strawberries)
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and spray a muffin pan very well.
  2. Wash, cut and slice the fruit as and set aside. (If using canned fruits, wash the fruits to remove the syrup).
  3. With an electric mixer, cream butter, sugar and yoghurt till light and fluffy.
  4. Add in the eggs gradually and beat till incorporated in the batter. Add vanilla extract and zest. Mix to combine.
  5. Sieve flour, baking powder and bicarb and mix in till smooth.
  6. If the mixture seems a bit dry add in the milk.
  7. Pour batter into muffin pans until about ¾ full.
  8. Arrange fruits on top, but don’t press the fruits down into the batter
  9. Bake for 15 - 20 mins or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the cake. Cover the top with foil in the last 5 mins of baking to prevent the top from getting too brown.
  10. Leave the cupcakes to cool in the pan for about 5~10 mins.
  11. Unmold and transfer to a wire rack to let cool completely.
  12. Dust the cake with some icing sugar if desired and serve with a delicious cup of tea or coffee.
