Smoked Salmon Cupcakes

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes



  • 3 eggs
  • 150 ml buttermilk
  • 120 ml oil
  • 200 g flour
  • 60 g corn starch
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • dill


  • 100 g smoked salmon
  • 125 g Philadelphia with herbs or other cream cheese
  • 100 g cottage cheese
  • lemon juice
  • salt if needed


  1. In a large bowl lightly beat eggs by hand, pour in buttermilk, oil and whisk until well combined.
  2. Mix flour, corn starch, baking powder, sugar and salt in another bowl.
  3. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix until combined. Add some chopped dill and mix again. I prefer a lot of dill! The dough should turn out thick and elastic.
  4. Distribute cupcake batter. Each cupcake liner should be about ¾ths full. Bake until cupcakes are set and firm to the touch, about 20 - 25 minutes at 180°C.
  5. Put salmon in a food processor. Pulse the processor to coarse-grind the salmon, then mix the salmon with cottage cheese, Philadelphia, lemon juice and salt (if needed).
