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.

    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.

White Bihoon/Rice vermicelli ~ 白米粉

I was introduced to White Bihoon on my recent trip to Singapore and must admit that I have never heard of this before.  Back here, we have Hokkien fried bihoon which is brownish in colour or Cantonese braised bihoon which is bihoon deep fried and coated with an eggy sauce of meat, seafood and vegetables.  I was curious and I had my first taste of this popular White Bihoon at Jewel, Changi airport.  It's white, because no light or dark soya sauce was added to the bihoon, hence it's white.  It does tastes good with a light squeeze of calamansi. So, today I'm trying to replicate this dish and here's my version of White Bihoon.  Enjoy!
