Spring delights- Ham and Cheese Cupcakes

There are so many reasons that I thanked God every day. And one of them is blessing me with an adorable daughter. We often called her “kutchi-kutchi Isabelle”. She’ll be turning 3 months in few days, and everyday she’s becoming more playful to her brothers. 

Now,that she’s growing fast I couldn’t help but think how our girls bonding would be. Girls talk, shopping, lovelife and I am pretty sure baking and cooking will be on our list too. 

As a matter of fact, I am thinking of compiling all the recipes and create a book that she could use in the future. 😜

On the other hand, since it’s Spring Break , I’m on a mission to bake new food aside from sweet and chocolate-y cupcake. For our breakfast today I baked ham and cheese cupcake. 

My eldest son doesn’t like Ham and Cheese Sandwich but he loves cupcakes. What about ham and cheese wrapped in cupcake? Clever idea right?!

Our entire house swelled with the scent of melted butter and freshly grated cheddar cheese. Mmmm.. 

Ham and Cheese Cupcake

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1/3 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 (5-ounce) can condensed milk
1/2 cup ham 
1 cup grated cheddar cheese, divided


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners. 

Combine all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Stir well; set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar together on medium speed. Mix until batter is pale yellow in color, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Add eggs and vanilla extract; mix. Add condensed milk.

Bring mixer speed to low. Add the flour mixture gradually.

Add 3/4 cup grated cheese. Mix until well combined.

Scoop batter onto prepared muffin tin until cups are 3/4 full. Sprinkle each muffin with dice ham. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean.

Remove pan from oven. Let cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
