Vanilla Cupcakes with Choc Glaze


These cupcakes were baked in a muffin pan but devoid of  paper liners as the chocolate glaze would drip down the the sides of the cakes.  If you use a paper liner, the chocolate glaze will drip onto the liner  and will look a bit messy.  I suppose these cuppies with the choco glaze and coloured sprinkles will be a hit with the kids during this festive season!








Recipe for Vanilla Cupcakes with Choco Glaze  香草杯子蛋糕

    Ingredients

    • 195 gm plain flour
    • 1.1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 113 gm unsalted butter
    • 1/4 tsp salt (omit if using salted butter)
    • 130 gm caster sugar
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1.1/2 tsp vanilla
    • 1/4 cup milk
    Chocolate Glaze
    • 120 gm /4 oz cooking chocolate
    • 42 gm butter
    • 1.1/2 Tbsp golden syrup 

    Method 
    1. Melt all the above ingredients in a big bowl  over a pot of simmering water.  Mix well, remove from heat and let it thicken for about 10 mins.  Pour the mixture into a measuring cup.

    Method for the cupcakes
    1. Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt  OR just whisk these in a mixing bowl and set aside.
    2. Beat butter, then add in the sugar and beat till light and creamy.
    3. Add in eggs one at a time, mix well.  If the mixture curdles, it doesn't matter for the mixture will smoothen out once the dry ingredients are added in.
    4. Fold in the flour alternatively with the milk, starting with flour and ending with flour.
    5. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out the batter into the lightly greased muffin pan.
    6. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 15 to 16 mins. till a skewer inserted comes out clean.
    7. Leave the cakes to cool in the pan for 10 mins. before removing onto a wire rack to cool completely.
    8. Pour the melted chocolate over the cupcakes, sprinkle on some coloured sprinkles as desired.
    9. Yield :  12 cupcakes

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
