The Cupcake Queen

We meet Austria’s first professional cupcake maker, Renate Gruber. Her motto is "Happiness has no calories". She was inspired after a trip to London, and now her cupcakes are a hit in Vienna.

Recipe for "Herb Cups"

Ingredients for 6 cupcakes:

150 grams chicken breast

1- 2 onions

150 grams blanched broccoli

60 grams grated cheddar cheese

160 grams wheat flour

10 grams baking powder

20 grams melted butter

145 grams milk

3 eggs

125 grams cream cheese

One bunch fresh parsley

Salt, pepper and powdered chili pepper


For the filling: cut up the chicken breast into small pieces and fry in oil. Add the finely chopped onion and cook for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and chilli to taste. Add broccoli and cook briefly. Let cool and stir in grated cheese.

In a separate bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt with the melted butter. Don't worry about any small lumps. They'll disappear when you add the milk and eggs. Mix all the ingredients well.

Spoon the batter into the baking molds until they are one-third full, add the chicken pieces and cover with one or two more spoonfuls of batter.

For the topping: mix cream cheese, parsley and salt in a food processor and fill into a pastry bag. Bake the cupcakes in a preheated oven at 170°C for 15-20 minutes until golden-brown. Allow to cool and decorate with the parsley-cream cheese topping. Serve with a mixed salad.

And enjoy! Guten Appetit!
