Cheese Cupcakes

Fresh from the Silicon valley :)

This is an old recipe of mine, which I usually bake in a small round baking dish and which my family adores under the name "Salty cake". I have a cupcake baking pan, but no matter how well I prepare it, the cupcakes always stick to it and are difficult to get out without deforming the shape. But today we tried our new silicon forms - they are a miracle, really. I'll have to buy more ...
And now the recipe (though I suspect I haven't invented the hot water and it's probably no different than any other cheese cupcake recipe, but nevertheless):
2 eggs
2 cups (260 g) flour
appr. 1/2 cup (100 g) vegetable oil
400 g yogurt
10 g baking powder
150 g white cheese

Beat the eggs. Add the oil. Add the baking powder to the yogurt, stir and add to the eggs and oil. Gradually add the flour, while stirring. In the end add the crumbled white cheese. Fill the cups (4/5) with the mix, arrange them in a baking tin and place them in the warmed up oven (180 C). Bake until the crust is golden brownish.
Optional: sprinkle on top with ground yellow cheese or caraway seeds.
A great snack for the school lunchboxes. Enjoy!
