Ted Lasso is one of best series we find on Apple TV +with Jason Sudeikis who has won numerous awards for his portrayal of the consistently positive coach of FC Richmond. Apple has announced the second season of its series and one of the best-kept secrets has been revealed: the recipe for cupcakes baked by Ted Lasso.
Developer David Smith realized that at Apple’s spring event, the company left a small Easter egg that partially showed the recipe. He claims to have cracked the first line of the recipe and found the rest in line.
If you haven’t seen the series, Ted tries to convince Rebecca, the owner of the football team he coaches and, to do so, he brings her a little daily pink box containing several small cupcakes. Some sands that TED cooks at home instead of buying them.

Even if you only see one line on the Apple image, you can easily decipher what it says. David Smith Googled These Words and found a recipe very similar to the one used by Ted Lasso. Here is what was disclosed in the recipe:
“One and a half cups / 340 grams of cold unsalted butter cut into 1/2-inch or larger pieces to grease the pan“.
If we search for the recipe, we see that it is very similar to that of Melissa Clark of the New York Times:
- 1 ½ cups / 340 grams cold unsalted butter (3 sticks), cut into 1/2-inch pieces, plus more to grease the pan.
- 3 cups / 385 grams of all-purpose flour.
- ¾ cup / 150 grams of granulated sugar.
- 1 ¼ teaspoon of fine sea salt.
- Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking sheet and line it with parchment paper that protrudes 2 inches on both long sides.
- Prepare the sands. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle or beaters, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Beat butter on low speed until dough comes together but is still a little crumbly.
- Press the dough into the prepared pan. Prick the dough all over with a fork. Bake until golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from the oven. Increase the oven temperature to 375 degrees.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the top is set, the center is soft and the edges start to separate from the pan, 23 to 28 minutes. (A toothpick inserted in the center will come out sticky.) Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into bars before serving.
The original recipe also adds a top brownie area, which can give it a cool touch. However, Ted’s original recipe is not a brownie, exclusively the cake baked with love.
