  • Remove mixing bowl from mixer.

  • Place the cupcake liners into two 6-cup muffin pans and fill halfway with the mixture.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and let them cool on a wire rack.

For the frosting

  • Beat the cream cheese, sugar, and yogurt in a mixer with the whisk attachment, until light and fluffy.
  • Slowly add the heavy cream while beating continuously.
  • If you want the frosting to be sweeter, add extra icing sugar.
  • Put frosting in a piping bag with a round pastry tip 8 mm and pipe over cupcakes.
  • Sprinkle with some finely chopped chocolate.


Do not fill the muffin pan more than halfway because the mixture rises quite a bit while baking.
