Cream Corn Muffins



Made these Cream Corn muffins as I was eager to try out  the Aussie Demerara sugar as a topping.
The full-bodied toffee and subtle butterscotch aroma of this sugar really helps to create a more flavourful and aromatic muffin.  Add this sugar into your cofee .....Quote 'makes the pleasure of sharing intimate coffee moments even better' Unquote from CSR Demerara sugar.










These muffins are soft, moist, ideal for breakfast or serve them for tea.  Must remember to sprinkle more of this sugar next time. Yummy!

Ingredients
  • 150 gm cream corn (canned, any brand of your choice)
  • 150 ml milk/soymilk  (I used soymilk)
  • 150 ml canola oil
  • 80 gm caster sugar
  • 2  tsp honey
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1  tsp vanilla
  • 250 gm plain flour
  • 1.1/2 flat tsp baking powder
  • 1  flat tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 flat tsp salt
  • Some Demerara sugar to sprinkle
Method
  1. Sift the flour with the baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt, mix well.
  2. Stir in the caster sugar and mix well, set aside.
  3. In another mixing bowl, add  in the oil, honey, soymilk, vanilla and cream corn.  Whisk in the lightly beaten egg and stir well.
  4. Pour this liquid mixture onto the dry flour mixture and mix till just combined.  Do not overmix.
  5. Spoon onto paper cups and bake in preheated oven @ 180 deg C for about 25 mins.  Insert a skewer into the centre of the muffin and see if it comes out clean.
  6. Sprinkle a generous amount of Demerara sugar onto the muffins immediately upon removing them from the oven.
  7. Serve warm.

    This is from Melb. My girl passed it through her friend who just came back for hols. Perhaps you can try to find it in Cold Storage, Ipoh's Cold Storage closed down quite some time ago. Not available in JJ and Tesco. It's readily available in S'pore supermarkets, from Mauritius but I prefer this, more coarse.

    I've been using soymilk instead of milk in most of my recipes. Taste can be a bit different. Why not experiment with it and see for yourself?

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
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),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
