Orange Cupcake


I've been wondering how to make good use of my Friand pan mould other than making  Blueberry Friands which I've posted earlier.  Then it dawned on me that I could also make use of this shape for cupcakes as well.  The pan mould is also a cup but only  in an oblong shape, so why not?  And so these cute little Orange Cupcakes were born!













This is original 'plain Jane' void of make-up, looks like a 'tophat' !



Soft, moist and flavourful ................ Tea time, any one?

Ingredients
  • 250 gm butter
  • 250 gm self-raising flour
  • 170 gm vanilla sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp orange rind  (keep some extra for decorating)
  • 85 ml fresh orange juice
  • pinch of salt
  • some icing sugar for dusting  (optional)
Method
  1. Sift flour with salt, set aside.
  2. Cream sugar, butter and orange rind till light, fluffy and creamy. 
  3. Add in eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Fold in sifted flour alternating with orange juice, start with flour and end with flour.  Mix well.
  5. Scoop up batter into the lightly greased and floured mould.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 degC for 20 - 25 mins.  Test with a skewer if it comes out clean.
  7. Let cool in pan for about 10 mins. before removing and transferring to cool completely on a wire rack.
  8. Decorate with some icing sugar and a little sprinkling of orange rind, if desired.

  11. What a clever idea on coming up with another way of using friands pan

    ReplyDelete
  12. Good idea! I suppose I could then use my normal cupcake pan to make cupcake shaped friands, right? Never thought of it :) Your cupcakes look very tempting.

  14. Cheah, does it alter the taste if i use normal caster sugar?

  15. Yummy Bakes
    It's fine with caster sugar too. I just add the vanilla pods to my bottle of caster sugar for extra aroma.

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.

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
