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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  13. 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.

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

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

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
