Easy Milo Cupcake

Disclaimer: I am just an average cook. The reason why I decided to make my own cupcakes is because the ones available in the market are very sweet!

What you need:

  • baking pan (in the absence of baking pan, good old leche flan llanera will do)
  • mixer (hand mixer, electric mixer or even fork will do)
  • bowl
  • steamer and pan or oven


  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 3-4 tablespoons of sugar (brown sugar will do)
  • 3-4 tablespoons of powdered Milk (I prefer Alaska)
  • 3-4 sachets of Milo
  • 3 tablespoons of Star Margarine (any butter will do)
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 5 tablespoons of water
  • grated chocolate (I use Beryll’s)
  • Hershey’s chocolate syrup
  1. Put the flour, baking powder, sugar, Milo and salt in a bowl.
  2. Mix.
  3. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl.
  4. Pour the egg in the mixture then mix until smooth.
  5. Low heat the pan to melt the margarine.
  6. Pour the margarine in the mixture and mix.
  7. Put some water on the mixture for a smoother effect.
  8. Put the grated chocolate on the mixture and mix.
  9. Put some chocolate syrup on the top of the mixture.
  10. Put the baking pan on the steamer and steam for 20 minutes. If you have an oven, you can set it at 5-8 minutes. Don’t forget to test the baking by picking a toothpick on the cake.

Others like moist cupcake while some prefer a dry one. If you want it super dry, you may extend the steaming to another five minutes.
