Christmas baking has begun in my house.

It was a dull day outside because of the rains. But with the beautiful aromas of vanilla and chocolate flooding the house post baking, it was a wonderful sweet evening inside my home.

These sweet little marble cupcakes are made with Greek yogurt and are totally egg free. I love making them because they are so easy and can be whipped up quickly in a stand mixer.

They are extremely moist and super fluffy. The Greek yogurt adds a lovely cheesy flavor and makes these cupcakes soft and moist.

I kept my cupcakes really simple by dusting the tops with some powdered sugar. You can definitely pipe some frosting to give it dimension and make it look more beautiful for any special occasion.

The cupcakes as it is (without frosting) store well when refrigerated in air tight containers for 3 – 4 days. Add some powdered sugar or frosting, just before serving. But I bet ya, these will be polished off in no time. They are a total crowd pleaser and great for tea time snacks.

Hope you enjoy this recipe.

Happy Baking!! 🙂
