Lemon Yogurt Cupcakes

What's the difference between a muffin and a cupcake?!? They are shaped exactly the same; they are made with the same ingredients. So...here are some of my favorite answers for the difference:

"Cupcakes have frostings. Muffins are naked."

"If you throw a cupcake against a wall you get a sound like "poof"; if you throw a muffin against a wall you get a sound like "thud."

"Muffins are simply ugly cupcakes."

"Muffins are to bread what cupcakes are to cakes."

Whatever you want to call these, they are delicious - and gluten-free. I started with a recipe on the Gluten-Free Goddess blog by Karina Allrich and tweaked a bit.

1 C blanched almond flour
1/2 C oat flour
1/2 C chestnut flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
Pinch of pink Himalaya salt
1 C organic raw sugar
5 medium free-range organic eggs
4 oz. light cream cheese, softened
1/2 C organic plain yogurt
2 T fresh lemon juice
Lemon zest from 1 lemon
1 t almond extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the cupcake pan with paper liners.

In a bowl whisk together the almond flour, oat flour, chestnut flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Beat the eggs in separate large mixing bowl until they are light and foamy. Beat in the cream cheese and yogurt until combined. Add in the lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla; beat to combine.

Add in the flour mixture a bit at a time and beat on medium speed for a minute or two. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the center of a pre-heated 350 degree F. oven for about 40 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of the cake emerges clean.

Cool on a wire rack; and release from the pan.

  1. Haha. Your post is just too funny. Whatever these should be called, all I know is that they'd be delicious any way. Thanks for linking them up to Sweets for a Saturday.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
