I’ve never had marble cake before, in reality, I should say I’ve never seen a marble cake before. And I’ve been searching long and wide for a good fool-proof recipe and since I promised my kids I’ll bake cupcakes for them, I adapted a marble cake recipe (from here) and converted it to a cupcake recipe. I also wanted to substitute half the fat in the recipe with thick Greek yogurt. I found the cupcakes needed little more sweetness so I served them with caramel sauce and its completely optional. Now I didn’t say they are completely healthy to gorge on, but when moderately eaten they make a good alternative.

The cupcakes were absolutely delicious and I was so happy with the results. They were moist, fluffy with beautiful swirls that I ended up gazing at them more than eating them. The beauty of these cupcakes is that there is always a new pattern in each cupcakes and an artistic eye will have a feast just by looking at them. Don’t count on holding them in your hands for too long as they’ll magically disappear especially if you have kids like mine. Off to the recipe, Enjoy your feast!!!

Notes

If you are using sweetened condensed milk for the milk powder then the sweetness of the cupcakes may be right. But if you are using milk powder and are not planning to top the muffins with caramel sauce then keep in mind that the cupcakes are not very sweet. So if you prefer add 1/4 cup more of powdered sugar to get the right sweetness.
