Hi Guys,

I’ve made these really delicious, savory, full of flavor Salmon Green Onion Cupcakes. I know, I know, everybody is raising their eyebrows now and officially you can call me CRAZY CHRISTY lol. But I promise you and trust me, these are amazing! And you won’t regret it.  The consistency of the cupcakes is like muffins and scones. With cream cheese, cranberry jam and some garnished green onions, it is phenomenal! You don’t even taste the salmon.

Here is the list of the ingredients:

2 Cups of AP Flour

1 Tbsp of Baking Powder

1/2 Tbsp of Salt

2 Eggs, medium size

1 Cup or 250 ml of Crème fraîche (sour cream or yoghurt can replace it too)

1 Cup or 200-250 gr of fresh Salmon, diced

1 Cup or 250 ml  of Vegetable Oil

1 Cup of Green Onion, finely chopped

2 Tbsp of Bavarian Sweet Mustard (honey mustard)

1 Tbsp of Dijon Mustard

1 Tbsp of Horseradish

2 Tbsp of Honey

For the frosting, you’ll need:

1/2 Cup or 125 gr of cream cheese

1/2 Cup or 125 ml of heavy cream

Some Cranberry jam

Some green onions.

How to make the Salmon Green Onion Cupcakes:

  1. Turn on your oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 375 degrees Farenheit.
  2. In your large bowl, beat your eggs until pale (3 minutes) with a mixer or a whisk.
  3. Add in the oil and Crème fraîche, mix again. If you don’t have Crème fraîche, you can also use sour cream or yoghurt. But yoghurt is a little ligher than Crème fraîche, you might need to reduce a little bit.
  4. Add in all the dry ingredients; flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix them again.
  5. Put in the salmon and green onions. Mix them with a spatula. Add in all the rest of the ingredients; mustard, sweet mustard and honey.
  6. Line your muffin tray with liners. Use a spoon to transfer your batter into the liners.
  7. I made about 12 cupcakes. I still had some and just made pancakes out of it.
  8. Bake for about 30 minutes. Let them cool.
  9. For the frosting, beat the heavy cream until soft peak or about 3 minutes.
  10. Add in the cream cheese and mix well with the whipped cream.
  11. Transfer it into a ziploc or a pastry bag with a nozzle. You can also use only a ziploc without a nozzle.
  12. Smear the cranberry jam on each cupcakes.
  13. Make a little swirl to cover the cranberry jam.
  14. Garnish with some green onions and cranberry jam.
  15. Enjoy!

Mackayla had been asking for Hello Kitty Cupcakes, so we baked Banana Blueberry Cupcakes with sprinkles of our leftover Oreos. Soft, sour, sweet and you literally could taste the banana in the cakes. Make these for your kids, they will love them! Believe me ❤️

For this recipe, you’ll need:

2 Riped Bananas, mashed with a fork (I had medium size bananas)

1 Cup of All Purpose Flour

1/2 Cup of Sugar

1/4 Cup of Melted Butter

1-1/2 Cups of Fresh Blueberries

A pinch of Salt

1 tsp of Baking Powder

3-4 Oreos, bashed into a coarse powder

For the Frosting:

100 gr of Mascarpone Cheese

200 gr of Heavy cream, whipped

1 package of vanilla sugar

(I personally don’t like it too sweet, that’s why only 1 package of vanilla sugar / 8 gr).

For the decorations, you can use anything you want 🙂

Instructions : 

  1. Preheat your oven to 360 degrees Farenheit (180 Celsius).
  2. Mash the bananas in a large bowl with a fork.
  3. Add in sugar, melted butter, salt and mix them.
  4. Add in flour, baking powder, and mix with your spatula.
  5. Put in the blueberries and don’t over mix them.
  6. Use your spoon or ice cream scoop to put in the batter into muffin tins which are lined with muffin liners. Scatter some bashed Oreo. Bake them for about 20 minutes.
  7. During that time, you can prepare the frosting.
  8. Put the heavy cream into a bowl with the vanilla sugar. Whip until soft peak. Add some mascarpone cheese and fold them gently. Transfer into a ziploc or a plastic bag. Put into a fridge until your cakes are ready (cooked and cold).
  9. Decorate the cupcakes with some frosting and hello kitty 🙂 Enjoy them with some Latte Machiatto or a cup Cappucino.
