Looking for a cupcake that’s suitable for lunch, one that’s not so sweet? Then these savory cupcakes are perfect. They’re very versatile. So if your kid asks for a cupcake for lunch, you can serve these.
The recipe is from the cookbook 50 Gerechten van toen met de smaak van nu (50 dishes from back then with the flavor of now) from Emté (Emté used to be a grocery store chain). There are only 6 ingredients needed for this cupcake, namely flour, baking powder, semi-skimmed milk, an egg, sunflower oil and cream cheese. Most of these ingredients will be in your pantry. In under an hour you can have these cupcakes done.
The cupcakes are very basic, but you can add cheese, herbs and/or vegetables for flavor. Think spinach and cheese, or sundried tomatoes, basil and mozzarella or oregano, feta and olives.
