Say Cheese! (A Pinoy Cheese Cupcake Recipe)

I am excited to share with you this new recipe which I tried yesterday!

I've been baking different cupcakes (banana, blueberry, carrot) but I haven't baked something which has that Filipino flavor.  So for a change, I thought of baking Filipino Cheese Cupcake!  I miss home and I have all the ingredients I need! Haha!  I have a big block (it's big that I still have some left after doing this recipe, haha) of cheddar cheese that was meant for the Mac and Cheese of the kids and a jar of condensed milk.  I think it's the condensed milk that makes this Cheese Cupcake truly Pinoy because we have a sweet tooth (not an expert answer, just an opinion haha!).  

Cheese and Condensed Milk?!  I am getting excited!  It's a good play of flavors right?

I got the recipe from Kawaling Pinoy (which has become one of my favorite sources for recipes). This cupcake recipe is easy to make and easy to follow that you can bake some for breakfast.  It has the right sweetness (for us) and a good balance of flavors from the cheese and condensed milk.  Definitely a keeper!  

Having one of this and coffee (or your favorite hot drink) . . . is pure joy. 

Hope you like it too =)

You get that golden brown crust on top

And a moist and fluffy cake inside with cheese bits!
