Servings 6 persons


  • Air Fryer


  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 8 soft cheese
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large lemon both juice & zest
  • ¼ cup caster sugar


  • In the large bowl mix together the Greek yoghurt and the soft cheese until they are nice and creamy and are like a mayonnaise. Use the wooden spoon or hand mixer. Beat the eggs and mix again. Add the sugar, vanilla extract and the lemon and mix again.
  • You need to get a creamy mixture and you need to fill 6 cupcake cases with the contents. Put the rest to one side for later.
  • Preheat your Air Fryer to 360 F and cook the cupcakes for 10 minutes. Then increase the temperature up to 390 F and cook for a further 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, the cupcakes are cooking remove the contents of your bowl into a cupcake nozzle and place in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  • When the cupcakes are done allow them to chill for 10 minutes.
  • When they are cool using the nozzle create the top layer of your cupcakes. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours so that your cupcake topping has time to properly set and then decorate with spare lemon.
