Cosmopolitan Cupcakes

Food & Recipes door lisa FG

Last week there was a huge article about #FITGIRLCODE and me in Cosmopolitan Magazine! Whaaa, have you seen it already? To celebrate this I came up with these delicious and cheerful Cosmopolitan Cupcakes. When I say Cosmopolitan, a cupcake is probably not the first thing you think about. The first thing I think about is the classic Cosmopolitan cocktail.

Hakuna ma vodka! It means no memories for the rest of the night ;-).

The ingredients of this cocktail are: wodka, Cointreau, lime juice and cranberry juice. Super tasty, but not so healthy nor ‘In love with health’ proof. So for this special occasion I made these healthy Cosmopolitan Cupcakes. I’m sorry girls, but I have to skip the wodka and I will replace the Cointreau for some orange zest. But trust me, every bite of this cupcake is a little piece of heaven.

‘You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy cupcakes and that’s kind of the same thing!’

Recipe for 6 cupcakes

  • 125 gram buckwheat flour or grounded oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 75 gram honey
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 50 milliliter almond milk
  • 60 gram coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 orange
  • 1 lime
  • 100 gram dried cranberries


  • 200 gram non fat quark
  • 10 raspberries
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Dried cranberries

How you make it
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Mix the flower, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Mix the eggs, milk, honey and oil in another bowl . Grate the zest of the orange and lime and add to the milk mixture. Save the orange and lime to garnish at the end. Add the flour mixture to the milk mixture. Add the cranberries and stir well. Fill the cupcake liners for ¾ with the mixture. Bake for 25 minutes till golden brown.

Mash the raspberries and mix them with the quark. Cut wedges out of the orange and lime. When the cupcakes are baked, let them cool down for 30 minutes. After this you put some of the quark mixture on top every cupcake. Finish it with the orange and lime wedges and some fresh mint leaves.

Enjoy lovelies!
