Jumbo Size Yogurt Marble Cupcakes
My other hobby besides baking and cooking are collecting cake or jelly moulds and cookie cutters. I just can’t stop buying every time when looking at pretty moulds or cute cutters. I was so happy to say YES! when Sarah-Jane of Silicone Moulds.Com emailed me saying she wanted to send me some of her silicone mould products. Ta…da!! I received the package last week and these are the silicone moulds that Sarah-Jane to me. Sarah-Jane sent a Crown Muffin for baking huge size muffins or cupcakes, Sponge Finger mould, spatula, some pretty cases and her latest product Fancy Hearts Silicone mould. Please check on Sarah-Jane’s blog and her products at SiliconeMoulds.Com for more information, you’ll not regret enjoy reading her interesting sites.
The silicone moulds are so easy to store. Look how flexible the crown muffin mould it is, I can just fold the mould and stuff it in my measuring cup.
Grease the new mould when used for the first time. Place silicone mould on a baking tray before filling as support when placing in the oven. It is very easy to remove the muffins from the mould when still a little warm. Gently press the bottom while peeling back the mould and pull the sides away. The silicone mould is also very easy to clean, no scrapping…just wash it with soapy water and that is done.
I made a healthy and soft cupcakes with plain yogurt and less sugar added.
The size of my cupcake is real huge and the height is 2 3/4 inches high! Woo..hoo!!
Here is the recipe
1/2 tsp Salt
100ml Whipping cream
2 tsp Vanilla extract
280g Plain flour (sift together with baking powder and baking soda)
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
120g Plain yogurt
1 1/2 tbsp Valrhona cocoa powder, sifted
1 tsp Chocolate paste
- Beat butter, salt and sugar at low speed and gradually add in whipping cream then switch to medium speed till butter until fluffy, add vanilla extract – mix well.
- Add one egg at a time. Mix well in between additions.
- Slowly add plain flour into egg mixture until well mixed (do not over mix) and pour in yogurt and mix well.
- Divide batter into two portions and add cocoa powder together with 2 tbsp milk to one of the plain batter follow by the chocolate paste, mix well with a rubber spatula.
- Scoop plain and chocolate batter into muffin mold alternately and use a fork to create swirl pattern.
- Bake at preheated oven at 180C for about 30 mins.

Hi C H Siew, you can order the silicone moulds online 🙂
Came across your blog only recently. I like the silicone moulds you have. I have seen some silicone bakeware in the market, but have always been wary about them. Hehe, will try to get some to try out, but not many available where I am.

Ann, I have seen silicon moulds in the market but I did not buy any cos not sure how it works. Your delicious looking muffins have cleared my doubts.
YOu have so many new moulds to play with now… lucky girl 😀
Love the "extra bits" of muffin top!! Lovely marble pattern.
I love marble cakes! Your oversized cupcakes look delicious!
Wow! Those are indeed jumbo cupcakes…!
I love silicone molds and use them in packing bento for boys and hubby. Your jumbo cupcakes are super! Love the marbling!
i love all the cupcakes cases that you always display on your posts and the muffins look cute..like little hats!! have a great weekend, ann!
I love any bakes with yogurt ^_^
Jumbo sized is good, the bigger the better:)
Love your huge cupcakes. They are so inviting. Although my stomach is not huge, I think I can gabble one very quickly, coz I'm afraid they would be gone too quickly.
You are so lucky to receive such wonderful and beautiful gifts. Looking forward to see more bakes from these cute items. 🙂
Wowaaah… they are just perfect!
Your muffins looks really great with the marble effect ! And the jumbo crown makes it very unique ! I am sure you can't find these in any bakeries out there. I love the various designs of your baking cups too, so lucky of u to receive them!
certianley looks like you have had some fun with these. The marbeling is lovely and your domes are really big ! They look like little volcanos erupting on top 🙂
They are huge – the equivalent of two standard size muffins in mix volume. I've had friends eyeballs on stalks with my crown muffins. I used to think that it was all about almost overfilling the mould – and my kitchen was a disaster at every arrempt with spilled mix until I realised I needed a tray with a rebated area at the top of the cell.
Shirley – Silicone bakeware is known to be a love or hate thing with many bakers. The truth is that many simply do not grasp the concepts of using it and have trouble getting cakes to release.
If you think about it, if you make a cake in a traditional NON-STICK tin, you still either grease and flour or grease and line. This is because if the sugar content is higher than the fat content, your cakes will weld themselves silly to the cake tin. It's the exact same with a silicone mould.
For this reason, it's advisable to always butter and flour your mould when making cakes. It's also easiest to release when your cakes are cooled but still warm. If yuou have a low sugar content or high fat content – ie bread or pastry – there is never any need to grease and flour. After a few uses, they do get easier and easier to use too.
They do need to be used on a baking tray for support… and they are fantastic for creating intricate designs. But, not everyone likes them and I totally accept that. Just so happens I love the stuff that much, I'm always coming up with new things to make with them. I like sharing with blogger friends too 🙂
How lucky for you:) And we know you'll put them all to great use. I hope to be making the transition to silicone molds soon. Love the pink ones so cute.
Beautiful muffins there, Ann. They look moist and delicious. Loving the marbling effect you've got going there. Lucky you for getting those lovely molds.
These are some over the top gorgeous muffins. I like the color and size, the molds work great;-)
The marbled effect looks amazing!
DG, yes there is baking powder and baking soda in it. I suggest if you're baking it in a smaller cups, you can reduce the baking soda to about 1 tsp will do.
@Shirley @ Kokken69
Shirley, I usually buy those cute silicone moulds for making jellies and this is the biggest one that I have. I think it is really good to giveaway unwanted stuffs to salvation army.
Wow, those are some gorgeous muffins! Wish the carrot muffins I made last night looked as good 😉 I don't own any silicone molds, guess I should get some if I'm going to start baking more.
