Portuguese Yogurt Cheesecake Cupcakes • Queijadas de Iogurte


Get ready for a delightful sweet treat! These portuguese yogurt cupcakes are a breeze to make, and they turn out perfectly dense and fluffy, its kinda a mix between a cupcake and a cheesecake so that’s why i gave this name in english hehehe. They’re the ideal accompaniment for an afternoon tea. If you’re feeling fancy, why not sprinkle some almonds, shredded coconut, or grated almonds on top? It’s all about elevating flavors and doing it the way you like it!

Now, I know the name’s a bit misleading—calling something a “queijada” (a Portuguese sweet made with cheese) when it doesn’t contain any cheese. But hey, that’s the original recipe name! The name probably hints at the similar texture to a typical portuguese queijada. So, let’s dive into this amazing cupcake like goodness!

  • Sugar – 300g
  • Eggs – 2
  • Flour – 100g
  • Butter – 50g

  1. Beat the sugar and eggs in a bowl until you get a smooth, uniform mixture.
  2. Add the melted butter, followed by the sifted flour, and mix thoroughly.
  3. Finally, fold in the Greek yogurt and mix until well combined. Pour the mixture into cupcake molds lined with non-stick parchment paper.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180ºC and bake the cupcakes for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on your cupcake tin’s size or mold, until they’re beautifully golden. For 12 cupcakes, it took about 34 minutes in my case.
  5. Remove from the oven and let them cool a bit. Enjoy your delicious treat hehehe!
Notes: Experiment with various flavors; try adding a touch of lemon zest or a drop of vanilla extract. For a unique twist, top with toasted coconut or chopped nuts before baking. Or just serve dusted with powdered sugar.
