Green Pea Cupcakes


Inspired by Angie's  Gluten Free Green Pea Muffins with Poppy and Mozzarella  I made these to try out as I still have some  green pea flour.  I used a basic cupcake recipe but substituted plain flour with green pea flour and added more milk as the consistency was a bit stiff.  These cuppies taste like the Indian Vadai as the main ingredients for these two 'cakes' come from peas.   The only difference is that Vadai is savoury while these cupcakes are sweet.   These green cuppies are moist and soft, something different from the normal cupcakes. If you're game for a change, give this a try!

Topo Map Cake ~ 地图蛋糕

I think it is more appropriate to name this cake just as 'Topo map cake' for the layers in this cake really look like a map.  Layering this cake can be quite challenging as a great deal of patience is required.  But patience and endurance do pay and after the cake is baked and once you sliced it up, you'll be so pleased to see the pretty layers and the colour combination.  Not only does it look awesome, the texture is good too, soft and moist.
