When I was In Secondary,the school where I attended sell cheese cupcake and I remember the cheesy sweet taste. Several years passed and the familiar taste and smell is not forgotten. How I wish to eat the same cupcakes again! But you know our Filipino Cheese Cupcake is a tease. Ask me why?.. because the batter has no cheese..lol! You can only find grated cheese on top. I was practically surprised to discover that..weird huh! But anyway,outside on top you can find cheese ..so there you go. They are basically muffins that are full heavy, sweet and very addictive. I got it from Kusina Ni Manang…I have made some slight changes… ( Manang ..thank you so much!..its a dream come true..)

3/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup refined sugar
4 large eggs 
2 cans (14 oz each) sweetened condensed milk
3 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup grated cheddar cheese for topping ( orange color)
Prepare 2 muffin pans with paper cups
Pre heat oven to 350 F
In a bowl mix flour and baking powder.Set aside
In a mixer,cream butter and sugar in a medium speed until soft and creamy
Turn speed to low and add eggs one at a time.
Increase the speed to medium and mix for about a minute
Then in a low speed gradually add condensed milk
Beat this time in a medium speed.
Turn to slow again and add gradually the flour mixture
Set the speed to medium and beat well while adding vegetable oil.
Beat well for a minute and add vanilla then beat again for one minute.
note: do not over mix or else your muffins will be dry.
Spoon the batter into the paper cups.
Top with grated cheese
Bake for 15 to 20 minute

Goodness…I cant hide my excitement..I cant even wait so I grabbed one and bite..it was still warm so I dont have a choice but to put it down…

 Ok..lets take a look at another angle..there no cheese inside! Come again… see, the cheese is on top.. lots lots lots…of cheese on top.The texture is very rich..dense..thick.. yet very addictive..
