Random search

Did a random search from Goggle as I want to finish up the yogurt before my tris tis weekend. Didnt want them expired after my trip and waste the 3 tubs of yogurt. I ended up using Emi - 2x Blueberries and 1x Strawberry yogurt.
End results is a kind of healthy cupcake 'texture'. Why I say that? First, there is no butter so dont expect a buttery fragrant as this recipe uses canola/vegetable oil. Secondly, it taste like steamed cake texture. But overall, my kids enjoyed it and whopped up 10 mini cupcakes once it cooled down. I managed to come up with about 40 mini bite-sized cupcakes. I would recommend it when you are lazy, rushing to make last min breakfast or snacks for tea break. If not, I would still prefer the usual butter recipe for cupcakes. (my own preference la)
