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!

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!

Lavender lemon cookies ~ 薰衣草柠檬曲奇

These dainty looking Lavender lemon cookies have a subtle taste of lavender, not too much for I used  fresh leaves instead of dried flowers.  They are buttery, taste like shortbread with a light floral aroma.  They are simple, cute and sure to impress.  Try gifting them at a Christmas cookie swap or great to give as a gift during the coming festive season.
