Cheese Cupcakes

Cheese Cupcake is one of my favorite snack growing up in the Philippines. This simple snack reminds me of high school days where I would spend most of my week allowance come Monday to buy my favorite cheese cupcakes from the local bakery near my school. Until now, every visit to Iloilo City, I make sure to get me some fresh baked cup cakes and now I can buy a dozen with ice cold mountain dew.

Cheese Cupcakes is one of the most classic Pinoy snack and popular among Filipinos. Cheese Cupcakes has all the flavor in a snack that Filipino loves. It is made with simple ingredients like flour, cheese, butter and condensed milk. It has that crusty golden brown and smells like heaven when baking. A perfect combination of milky and salty flavor. This Cheese Cupcakes are moist and a little denser because of the sweetened condensed milk.
