To change things up a bit, I decided to make some savory cupcakes for a change. I mean, I luuvv a good sweet cupcake.. chocolate, strawberry, apple & cinnamon, and all frostings that come with them as well. But the idea of having cupcakes for dinner or lunch really appealed to me so I gave them a go :)

What you'll need :

For the cupcakes

  • 200 grams of flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder (7 grams)
  • 2 eggs
  • 225 grams spinach puree (cooked and pureed or frozen a la crème)
  • 50 grams honey
  • 80 ml olive oil extra vergine
  • 0.5 tablespoon salt

For the 'frosting' cream

  • 200 g butter (room temperature)
  • 200 g soft young goat cheese
  • Salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 50 g honey

You'll also need this for decorating

  • 50 grams pine nuts
  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • some honey
  • a little bit of goat cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C (356 F) and mix together flour, baking powder, eggs, spinach, honey, olive oil and a little bit of salt with an electric mixer. Put 12 paper cups in to your cupcake tray and divide equally.
  2. Bake them in the over for about 25 minutes and let them cool.
  3. Now on to the fun part, making the butter/cheese cream! Beat the butter in a bowl and add the goatcheese bit by bit. Then stir in the honey, some salt & pepper to your taste and that's it.
  4. Use a pastry bag like I did or just use a knife to apply the cream to your cupcakes.
  5. Toast your pinenuts in a hot dry pan until starting to brown a bit (focus at this part, they'll go black before you know it!) and decorate your spinach cupcakes with a little bit of goatcheese, the toasted pinenuts, some fresh thyme and a drizzle of honey. ENJOY!!
