Pinoy Cheese Cupcake

This is what the typical neighborhood type of Filipino bakeshops would tout as their "special"kababayan in the sense that it uses cheese. A closer look at the ingredients would indicate that this is basically a muffin topped with grated cheese. Contrary to how the Western cheesecake is, this does not have any form of cream cheese (or anything cheese) in its batter.

This was my favorite muffin in my Tatay's bakery, especially when fresh out of the oven with its crunchy top. Once cooled, I would wrap them individually in small clear plastic bags and seal using the candle (I got proficient at making the seal without actually touching the flame; just the heat, so that the plastic would not have any dark marking as it does when it touches the yellow flame).

Husband had a taste of the batter and thought it tasted like butter cookies. (Hmmmm....maybe I should try making some into drop cookies.) When it was done, I had hubby taste it. His reaction was..."Hmmm, that's good!" Kids' reaction? Same. (gaya-gaya, puto-maya...)

This recipe was adapted from Mrs. Daisy Alonzo's recipe.

1 bar (1/2 cup) butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
4 eggs
2 cans (14 oz each) sweetened condensed milk
3-2/3 cups all purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
cheddar cheese, finely grated, for topping


Line 2 muffin pans with paper cups.
Preheat oven to 350 ° F
Mix flour and baking powder well in a bowl.
Using a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar together on medium speed. Turn speed to slow and add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually increase speed to medium and beat well.
Turn speed to slow and slowly add the condensed milk. Beat well on medium speed for about a minute.
Turn to slow again and add the dry ingredients. Increase speed to medium and add oil. Beat well for about another minute. Add vanilla and beat to blend.
Transfer batter to a piping bag and pipe into the muffin cups, leaving about 1/4 inch space at the top.
Top with grated cheese (preferably the orange-colored cheddar cheese).
Bake for 15 minutes, then rotate the pans for even baking. (If you want, you may add some more cheese at this point).Bake for another 10 minutes. Enjoy with maple syrup or condensed milk if desired.
Transfer to cooling rack and completely cool before storing in ziploc bags those that you will not be able to consume right away.

The original recipe that I got from forum was as follows:

Those look good, manang. I guess condensed milk must give these cupcakes that special flavor. Yesterday, I was at an Arab supermarket and I saw those vanilla bean pods that some western recipes recommend (instead of vanilla extract). Vanilla bean pods would probably add that extra zing to Pinoy baked goods. I ought to try it one day. Those bean pods however cost an arm and a leg.
Good luck on your exams!

HI Sharon,
These taste good, but just like how I remember them, they are quite "siksik" and "matigas" when cooled, not cake-like. But my family, even hubby, enjoy them that way, anyway. If I had my way, I would make it softer. I remember my Tatay once experimenting with his cupcakes by adding grated kamoteng-kahoy that he harvested from our own plants at the time. It was only one time that he did so, and I savored E-V-E-R-Y bite of those cupcakes. They were the best cheese cupcakes I have ever tasted...moist and tender with all the flavors of this recipe. So maybe next time I make another batch, I will try incorporating cassava. I do hope hubby and the kids will still like them.

Manang I tried your recipe and it was a hit with my officemates! Even if the last batch I made was over baked for 5 min, the cheese was a bit burnt but the inside was still soft. Thanks for sharing! Now I don't need to buy this at a bakeshop in Pangasinan when I crave for it.

lalaine said...

I've been searching the web for this recipe. Thanks. BTW, have you tried adding mayonnaise to the batter? My friend who is a baker swears to it, makes the cake softer and more moist.

Thanks for sharing.

Manang said...

Hi Lalaine,
That's a good idea...I had used a chocolate cake before with a mayonnaise...makes it moisture by adding increased fat (oil) content. It should work...I just wonder how close it will be to the original taste...

My father at one point experiment by subbing some flour with grated cassava (he dug the tuber of our plant), and to me it was the best batch of cheese cupcake he ever made. I tried doing the same but I did not get the right proportion as it barely added moistness.

manang, i made this today. they look pretty in the tray but when i took them out to transfer to the cooling rack, the sides and bottoms look burnt as in maitim... what did i do wrong? anyway it tastes great... lasang sunog lang ng konti sa ilalim pero ok pa rin. maybe i should lessen the baking time?

oggi said...

Manang, thank you for the recipe. I have never heard of this kababayan muffins. I'll bake some and let you know the outcome.:)

Elona said...

Hi Manang,
I am craving for this Cheese cupccake now.
I want to ask if I happened to add grated cassava how much do you think I can add to this.I never tried this.

hope to hear from you.

Manang said...

Hi Elona, you can replace the 2/3 cup of flour with grated cassava. Also, my sister finds this recipe too siksik, so I tried to use less flour as well, so I ended up changing the amount of flour to only two cups plus I tried the 2/3 cup of grated cassava. It turned out less siksik. :)

Elona said...

Hello Manang,
Thank you so much for the information. I'm going to bake this later and I will try first your own recipe without the cassava.

I tried my chocolate moist with Mayonaise yes,the cake is moist and so yummy. Do you think adding mayonaise to this cheesecupkace makes it moist?
Thank you once again Manang.
God Bless!

Manang said...

Elona, I think that would work find, I just don't know how much mayo you should add. I can see a kindred spirit in you! Mahilig ka rin mag-experiment! Haha! Let me know what the outcome will be.

Elona said...

Hello Manang,
Yes i tried baking your muffin ,i add ONE THIRD cup of Mayonaise, ang sarap sabi sa bumibili hehee. naku nalagyan ko nang 5 eggs, pero masarap pa rin.
Thank you talaga.
Later today,gusto ko gumawa ulit with grated cassava.
thanks ulit!

Emeriza said...
