These cupcakes are my kids favorite snack to bring in their lunch boxes. They are so good that even the teachers would write me a letter requesting the recipe. Enjoy!

This was the first time I've made a cheese cupcake, and I was pleasantly surprised. The orange extract adds a really nice touch. The cakes were light and fluffy. I sent a good portion of them to work with my brother, and everyone there loved them..even a person who does not like cheese, said that they were excellent and ate more than one. I personally would like more cheese in them next time. Thank you!

just wondering - what are those teachers doing stealing cupcakes from your children?!! ;)

I absolutely love these cupcakes. I didn't have orange flavoring so I used almond and wow soooooooo good! My family loves it also. I overbaked them at 25 minutes. So the next time I will reduce to 22 minutes.
