1) Preheat oven to 180C.Grease a 21 cm tube pan.

2) Cream butter and sugar in (A) till light and creamy. Beat in vanilla. Dribble in (C) slowly, about 1 tbsp at a time, beating constantly for about 2 mins*

3) On LOW speed, beat in 1/3 of (D). Mix until just combined. Beat in ½ the yogurt. Beat in 1/2 of the remaining flour mixture, followed by the rest of the yogurt. Lastly, beat in the rest of the flour. Take care not to overmix.

4) Measure out about half of the batter and fold in (B). Set aside.

5) Alternate large spoonfuls of the white and chocolate batters into the pan.

6)Use a table knife to marble the batters together in a zig-zag or circular motion, taking care not to blend them too much.

7) Bake for 45 to 50 mins till skewer inserted comes out clean. 8)Cool in pan for 10 mins. Unmold and cool completely.

* if mixture curdles after adding in eggs, try adding in 2 tbsps of the flour mixture and beat on LOW. Mixture should look smoother, continue adding flour and yogurt.

Hi Lazychef,

The cupcake looks lovely and yummy. But i’m wondering, how come it takes so long to bake? you baked the cupcake in a normal cake pan or you baked them individually? I want to try this recipe this weekend but not too sure about the baking time. Please advice ya! Thanks ;>
