Yoghurt cake cupcakes

It was a Sunday night and my children had finished off a bowl of Skinnymixers bacon and vegetable soup, still had plenty of time before bedtime and asked for some dessert.

Wasnt planning on any but hey it the school holidays so I flicked through the tm5 basic cook book for inspiration of something quick and easy I could adapt. I came across the yoghurt cake and here is what I ended up tweaking it to:



  • 80g coconut oil, soft/melted
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 75g coconut sugar or sweetener of choice
  • 3 eggs
  • 200g white unbleached spelt flour
  • 120g greek yoghurt (I used some homemade yoghurt)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

[Cream cheese frosting optional]

  • 125g cream cheese, cubed, at room temp
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice



  1. Preheat oven to 180C and line or oil your cupcake pan tray
  2. Add lemon zest and sugar to jug and blitz 10 seconds/speed 10. Scrape down.
  3. Add eggs and mix 30 seconds/speed 3.
  4. Add flour, yoghurt, oil and salt. Mix 1 minute/speed 5.
  5. Add baking powder and mix 15 seconds/speed 5.
  6. Add mixture to cupcakes mould and bake 15-18 minutes (check as my oven is woeful and needs to be replaced)


  1. Insert butterfly attachment
  2. Add all ingredients to jug and 30 seconds/speed 4. Scrape down sides and mix with spatula and repeat.

Lovely served warm as well.

Enjoy :)
