These light, ethereal cupcakes are easy to make and not too sweet. Small children, including my granddaughter Oona, love to do the swirling part. The fromage blanc adds a wonderful creaminess to the batter, and a savory tang and visual intrigue to the finished cupcake.


For the Swirl

  • ¼ cup (2 oz/60 g) sugar
  • 2


Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line 24 standard muffin cups with paper liners. To make the swirl, in a bowl, beat together the sugar and butter until smooth. Beat in the egg until incorporated, then add the flour and fromage blanc and again beat until smooth. Set aside.
