    momaphet's Note:

    These cupcakes are based on a Greek cake made with yogurt called yiaourtopita, which translates into yogurt pie but is basically a syrupy yogurt cake. This version is lighter; has fewer eggs and does not contain butter. From the blog olivetomato

      These were awesome! I was afraid these wouldn't work out because I couldn't keep the olive oil and sugar from separating but the yogurt made it all work. The texture is wonderful - so moist. Made for ZWT9.
