Choc Chips Raisin Muffin


I recently made this for my girl who will only insist on eating muffins that have loads of choc chips and raisins - an ideal accompaniment to go with afternoon tea, too.

Recipe for Choc Chip Raisin Muffin

Ingredients :
  • 9 oz Plain/All Purpose flour
  • 4 oz Caster Sugar
  • 3 Teasp. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Teasp. Salt

  • 1/2 Cup Cannola/Corn Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Milk OR Sugarless Soyabean Milk
  • 1 Teasp. Vanilla
  • 80 gm Raisins
  • 80 gm Choc Chips
Method :
1. Sift the plain flour with the baking powder and salt. Mix in the sugar thoroughly. Set aside.
2. Lightly beat the eggs, blend in the oil, soyabean milk, vanilla, and mix well.
3. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients, stir quickly till just moistened.
4. Fold in lightly the raisins and choc chips.
5. Spoon into well greased muffin tins or paper-lined muffin cups.
6. Bake in preheated oven @ 400 deg.F/200 deg.C, for about 25 minutes until golden brown and test with a skewer till it comes out clean.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.

Curry leaf Salted Egg Cookies ~ 咖喱叶咸蛋曲奇 ~ CNY 2017

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.
