On April 27th we celebrate Kingsday in the Netherlands. This year I made Kingsday cupcakes for the occasion. A favorite normally to sell on a jumble sale, but sadly there weren’t any ‘vrijmarkten’ this year. But we had a Koningsdag cupcake at home to celebrate the day.
The cupcakes are simple, but delicious vanilla cupcakes with yogurt in them. Topped with butter cream and orange edible confetti. The recipe is from the cookbook ‘Alle dagen feest!’ from Xenos.
When looking for another kind of cupcake, try these Eyeballs Cupcakes or Pulled Pork Egg Muffins. When looking for a healthy cupcake, check out this Breakfast Mug Cake. Looking for a delicious cookie, look no further than these White Chocolate Orange Cookies. For a colorful drink to serve with the cupcakes, try this Blue Latte.
The cupcakes were easy to make, the recipe was clear. I’ve changed the topping slightly. I didn’t have orange food coloring at home to make the butter cream orange. So I kept the butter cream white and topped it with the orange confetti.

100 grams butter

125 ml yogurt
2 eggs (room temperature)
225 grams self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

Cream the butter, white castor sugar and a few spoons of the yogurt until the sugar has dissolved.
Clutch the eggs. Pour them in the bowl with the butter mixture and whisk. Add the remaining yogurt and stir. Then add the self-raising flour, baking powder and vanilla sugar. Fold in with the rest.
Scoop the cupcake batter in the cupcake tin. Bake 20 minutes in a preheated 180°C/356°F oven. Let cool down.
Whisk the butter until soft. Add half of the powdered sugar and mix. Then add the remaining of the powdered sugar and a tablespoon of milk. Beat until it’s a smooth cream. If needed add an extra tablespoon of milk.
Place a big dollop of buttercream on each cupcake. Sprinkle with the orange confetti and serve!

these look great too!!!
I’ve worked on and off in the Netherlands and Belgium. One of my first projects was for Orange (mobile phones) in Belgium – with a Dutch company partner. The Brits were so bemused by the Orange on Kings Day – and the Dutch kept telling us the company was named for them! So I love these cakes as they take me back!
I love how cheerful and colorful these are!
The cupcakes look delicious! I like the fun sprinkles on top.
