Decadent Jumbo Yogurt Marble Cupcakes Recipe - A Swirl of Delight











Whip up a batch of these jumbo-sized yogurt marble cupcakes for a dessert that's not only a treat to your taste buds but also a feast for your eyes. With the perfect blend of fluffy and moist, every bite is a delightful swirl of vanilla and chocolate.


Step 1: Preparation of the Batter

Begin by taking a large mixing bowl and beating together the stick of butter, salt, and sugar at a low speed. Gradually add the whipping cream and switch the mixer to a medium speed, continuing until the mixture becomes fluffy. A fragrance of sweet vanilla fills the kitchen as you stir in the vanilla extract, perfectly combining with the creamy base. This process sets the foundation for our cupcake batter, ensuring it's light and airy.
Pro Tip: For an even fluffier texture, ensure all ingredients are at room temperature before starting.

Step 2: Adding Eggs

One at a time, gently introduce each egg to the mixture, blending well after each addition. It's crucial to add them one by one to maintain the structure of the batter, allowing it to emulsify properly, which, in turn, ensures the cupcakes will have that desired moist and delicate texture. As the eggs blend into the mixture, it begins to take on a glossy appearance, hinting at the luxurious mouthfeel of the final product.
Pro Tip: Crack each egg into a separate bowl first to avoid any shell fragments from getting into your batter.

Step 3: Creating the Marble Effect

After the eggs, fold in the all-purpose flour gently with your spatula. The key here is not to overmix to keep the cupcakes light and airy. Next, add the yogurt for an extra moist texture. Now, for the fun part - creating that mesmerizing marble effect! Divide your batter into two. In one half, stir in the cocoa powder, milk, and chocolate paste until just combined. Alternate scoops of plain and chocolate batter into the muffin molds. Then, take a fork and gently swirl the two batters together, creating beautiful marble patterns. This step not only promises a visual treat but also an exciting combination of flavors with every bite.
Pro Tip: Use a rubber spatelula for his step to avoid deflating the batter.

Step 4: Baking to Perfection

Place your prepped muffin molds into a preheated oven at 180C (350F) and let them bake for about 30 minutes. The anticipation builds as the aroma of baking cupcakes begins to fill the air, a sure sign that something delicious is on its way. Once they're golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, your cupcakes are done. Let them cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. This ensures they keep their structure and don’t fall apart. Patience is key!
Pro Tip: Keep an eye on your cupcakes as oven temperatures can vary; you don't want to overbake them.
