Pineapple Walnut Muffins










I was doing stock taking in the kitchen and stumbled upon some yoghurt in the fridge, long forgotten, gosh, I looked at the expiry date, thank goodness it still have a few more days of shelf-life.  So, together with some left-over dried pineapple, I whisked these up and shared them with some friends for tea, much to their delight.

  2. Hi Choong
    Tastes good.....not bad for first attempt. If u want to use butter, just melt it in a pot. But butter is more oily and fattening. U can also use Corn or Olive oil.

I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),
