Yogurt chiffon cupcake

 Yesterday, my niece told me that she wanted to bake cupcake ^^, so I asked her what kinds of cake that she wanted to eat. 
The answer is soft cake with whipped cream (well, she really enjoys whipped cream, haha). So I think about making chiffon cake in a cup, it takes less time to bake, easy and goes very well with whipped cream (the real point of eating cake for my niece). 
Instead of oil, this time the fat for chiffon is melt butter mixed with milk and yogurt. The texture still soft as using oil, but the flavour is better ^^. The lovely tangy taste and fragrance of the yogurt make this cupcake special. 
Baking chiffon cake is a bit tricky, make sure that the temperature is not too high and let the cake set properly or the cake will drop (or sink in the middle) easily. As the cake will rise a lot put the batter into the cup only 3/4 of the paper cup will prevent overflow too.
Serve this soft cupcake with a cup of hot tea or coffee is the best choice for me, but for my niece with a cup of milk and more whipped cream, haha.
