Everything Bagel Cupcakes

My favorite part about people now being aware that I can bake is that I often get challenged with new recipes my friends would like to see. Most recently, my friend Emily (https://twitter.com/gimmedatvecchi), an avid bagel lover like myself, challenged me to make an everything bagel cupcake. I have seen everything doughnuts, but am often turned away by the sweetness of them. This cupcake is purely savory.

I was surprised with how much I really liked this. Bagels are amazing, but dense, and the light “cake” of this one allowed me to enjoy what I really came for, the everything seasoning and cream cheese. Overall, I was pretty pleased with this one. Weird your friends out and try it yourself. They won’t see it coming.

I hereby dub this beautiful creation the “Vecchi”.

Bagel Cupcake

  • 1¼ cup of all purpose flour
  • 1 cup of bread flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2½ tbs vegetable oil
  • 1¼ cups buttermilk

Cream Cheese Topping

  • 3 sticks cream cheese, softened
  • 2-5 tbs milk
  • Everything bagel seasoning: (Sea Salt Flakes, Sesame Seeds, Mediterranean Sea Salt flakes, Minced Onion, Minced Garlic, Poppy Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Black Caraway Seeds)
  • top with chives, smoked salmon, or your other favorite bagel add-ons!


  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a 12-cup cupcake pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients. Mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, oil and buttermilk.
  4. Slowly pour the oil mixture into the dry mixture. Mix with a wooden spoon until all the ingredients are well combined. (The dough will be sticky.)
  5. Transfer the dough into the cupcake pan and spread it evenly.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes (until the toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.)

Cream Cheese Topping

  1. Using your mixer and whisk attachment, beat the cream cheese until whipped.
  2. Gradually add in the milk until you get your desired consistency.
  3. Top with everything bagel seasoning.
