How to make Filipino Cheese Cupcake Recipe.

Pinoy Cheese Cupcake Recipe –  This cupcake is a perfect combination of milky and salty flavour. These cupcakes are moist and a little bit denser because of the sweetened condensed milk and cream cheese. The tangy hint from the orange extract and the saltiness from cheddar cheese is perfect. I got this recipe from the box of Peotraco caster sugar and made some alterations and finally it turned well it’s softer and moist.

Makes 2 dozen
