Mini Cream Cheese Cupcakes

This recipe is from JoDeliBakery and the cupcakes were so good that Renee, who normally does not eat well, ate 6 at one go. Thanks Jo for sharing. The cupcakes freeze well and i could make them way ahead. I will thaw them the night before the party and decorate them with icing on the party day.

hi! would love to try baking it as i have extra cream cheese in the fridge. may i ask, can i bake it in a square tin instead of in a muffin tin at the same temperature and timing? i have a microwave cum convection oven.

new baker

certainly but the cooking time will be very much longer. test the center of cake for doneness.

hmmmm..remind me of when i glazed it with icing sugar mixture of icing sugar and lemon juice. Garnish with candied lemon peel...yummy

Unknown said...


fill your icing tube with buttercream and use the biggest star nozzle. Just squeeze and twirl on top of cupcakes. if the star is big, a single twirl will do .

I came across your blog only recently & enjoyed alot of your recipes.
Wow! Your muffins look so........delicious. As I have only recently started to make cakes, can you tell me the where do I get the cream cheese? Can I buy from Phoon Huat?

Unknown said...


cream cheese is readily available in any supermarket here in the united states.

i am sure you can get from phoon huat singapore as i have heard from my friends that you can get all your cooking ingredients from there.

Hi there fellow bakers!

Just finished baking and there are only two left......... yes, these are delicious!

Just a note to new baker, you should fill in only half of your paper cup size. Looks little but after baking, it fills up beautifully. I used plain flour instead of cake flour and it works out fine too.

Many thanks Lily for sharing this great receipe. I loved your blog! :)

Hi Lily,

I tried this cake today, and it turned out great, except I think I can do with less sugar and also for some reason the cake deflated. Any reason why it has dent in the middle? Tasted great though!

Unknown said...


slight deflation is expected but if it is great then it could be your oven temp. is too hot.

Hi! Just want to ask if i can use cream cheese spread in bottle instead of the cream cheese bar? Thank you very much.

Unknown said...


i really do not know if it is going to work with this cream cheese spread as i have not found any recipe using this spread.

Hi Lily

Wonder if you have the recipe for the 鸡蛋糕 or egg cupcakes found in this link:

I tried this cupcake last Sat and found it to be so so soft, fluffy and delicious. Yum Yum..

Or do you have the recipe for the sponge cupcakes similar to Crystal Jade's?

Hi Auntie Lily.

Is it a must to use cake flour? How bout HongKong flour? and how do u make ur frosting?

Unknown said...


Cake Flour = hongkong flour

For the frosting, I would frost according to the occasion. The one in the picture is just a dollop of whipped cream and the bottom is Buttercream Icing which is the same as in all the birthday cakes.

Hi Lily! thanks for the recipes and the detailed explanation!
Re this recipe, I am wondering about the measurement for egg which is written "2 nos. medium (grade B) eggs". Do you mean it as 2 ounces which is equal to 58 grams?

Unknown said...


This recipe is Jodelibakery and since Jo is in Malaysia, i think grade B eggs there is smaller in size but grading eggs is different here in the States Read about it

2 ounces eggs will be fine.
