For several nights now, I’ve been craving for sweet-and-sour cupcakes because of Angelo‘s (Daniel Padilla) famous dayap* cupcakes in Pangako Sa’Yo. Everyone in the story was raving about it! Since we’ll probably never have access to the actual recipe, I searched for a recipe I personally tried back in 2013. The cupcakes’ taste resemble Yna (Kathryn Bernardo) and Angelo’s love that was sweet yet currently sour. 😛 Featured screenshots courtesy of ABS-CBN and Mico Del Rosario.

*Dayap is our native lime.

NOTE: In case you don’t have dayap in your kitchen, feel free to substitute it with calamansi or imported lemon.

Here’s the recipe:



  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (sifted)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup pure dayap juice (may substitute with lemon or calamansi)  NOTE: For stronger dayap taste, make it 1/3 cup! 🙂


  • Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  • Grease a 12-cup muffin pan or use paper liners.
  • In a bowl, mix dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix butter and sugar on low speed until creamy.
  • Add in the eggs and dayap juice.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients. Mix well.
  • Pour batter into muffin pan up to 2/3 or 3/4 full to give room for the batter to rise.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes (depends on your oven).
