Mixed Choc Craisin Muffins


I had some leftover white and black chocolates which had been hibernating in the fridge for quite a while.  So thought it a good idea to dump them with some craisins into a basic Muffin recipe and create a Mixed Choc Craisin Muffin for my afternoon tea.   I added a sprinkling of granulated sugar and cinnamon on top and this gave the added crispy, sweetish crunch...mmmm.   Saved some leftovers for breakfast and after popping them into the oven toaster, they tasted just as good!

  4. Hi Soke Hah, great idea to add cinnamon and sugar as topping for these muffins. I can imagine the aroma coming from the oven. Will keep in mind when I'm baking muffins.

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.

Black Bean Sauce Chicken ~ 黑豆酱鸡

  This is an easy peasy chicken dish to whip up in the kitchen which can pair well with plain white rice or plain congee.  Ingredients are not complicated and mostly available in the kitchen, but it's best to season the chicken first before stir frying them. Black Bean Sauce Chicken   ~   黑豆酱鸡 Ingredients 450 gm  chicken, cut into bite size (whole leg of chicken and breast) 2 tsp black bean sauce 4 pips of garlic, chopped 1 big onion cut into wedges 1 chilli, chopped 1 small Carrot, cut into slices Curry leaves Bit of sugar to taste Method Season the chicken with a pinch of salt. Saute the chopped garlic with the curry leaves and black bean sauce till fragrant. Add in the seasoned chicken, stir fry and sprinkle on some water if the dish is too dry. Simmer till chicken is cooked and tender. Add in the sliced carrot and onion wedges.  Fine tune to taste with a bit of sugar. Toss in the chopped chilli. Dish up to serve.
