Vanilla Cupcakes with Choc Glaze


These cupcakes were baked in a muffin pan but devoid of  paper liners as the chocolate glaze would drip down the the sides of the cakes.  If you use a paper liner, the chocolate glaze will drip onto the liner  and will look a bit messy.  I suppose these cuppies with the choco glaze and coloured sprinkles will be a hit with the kids during this festive season!








Recipe for Vanilla Cupcakes with Choco Glaze  香草杯子蛋糕

    Ingredients

    • 195 gm plain flour
    • 1.1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 113 gm unsalted butter
    • 1/4 tsp salt (omit if using salted butter)
    • 130 gm caster sugar
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1.1/2 tsp vanilla
    • 1/4 cup milk
    Chocolate Glaze
    • 120 gm /4 oz cooking chocolate
    • 42 gm butter
    • 1.1/2 Tbsp golden syrup 

    Method 
    1. Melt all the above ingredients in a big bowl  over a pot of simmering water.  Mix well, remove from heat and let it thicken for about 10 mins.  Pour the mixture into a measuring cup.

    Method for the cupcakes
    1. Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt  OR just whisk these in a mixing bowl and set aside.
    2. Beat butter, then add in the sugar and beat till light and creamy.
    3. Add in eggs one at a time, mix well.  If the mixture curdles, it doesn't matter for the mixture will smoothen out once the dry ingredients are added in.
    4. Fold in the flour alternatively with the milk, starting with flour and ending with flour.
    5. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out the batter into the lightly greased muffin pan.
    6. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 15 to 16 mins. till a skewer inserted comes out clean.
    7. Leave the cakes to cool in the pan for 10 mins. before removing onto a wire rack to cool completely.
    8. Pour the melted chocolate over the cupcakes, sprinkle on some coloured sprinkles as desired.
    9. Yield :  12 cupcakes

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.

Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy ~ 梅菜焖五花肉

Mui Choy is preserved mustard greens and there are two types, one is salty while the other is sweet.  There are many ways of cooking mui choy with pork belly.  Instead of braising, you can steam it with minced pork but here I am using only the sweet mui choy and I braised the pork belly with it.  This is a flavourful dish and you can serve it with plain rice or plain porridge. Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy   ~    梅菜焖五花肉 Ingredients  400 gm pork belly cut into bite size 100 gm  preserved sweet mui choy 3 cloves of garlic 2 slices ginger Seasoning for the pork belly 1 Tbsp dark soya sauce 1/4 Tbsp sugar 1/4 Tbsp sesame oil 1/4 Tbsp oyster sauce 1/2 tsp pepper 1/8 tsp light soya sauce Method Season the pork belly for about an hour or more.  Set aside. Soak the mui choy for 45 mins., rinse and squeeze dry.  Cut into slices Heat some oil in the wok, fry the mui choy.  Add in the ginger slices.  Stir-fry. Add in the pork  belly, fry for a while and

Eel soup

This is an ABC soup with a difference.  Yes, there's fish in this soup ..... added a block of eel in it.  Curiosity was what prompted me to cook this soup.  I asked the fishmonger what is the best way to prepare this fish and he said that this eel makes a very tasty soup and I can't agree  more! Sweet and tasty soup with no fishy smell at all! Recipe for Eel Soup Ingredients 350 gm eel 2 carrots, cut into cubes 2 tomatoes,cut into wedges 3 onions, cut into wedges 2.5 lt of water 20  white peppercorns, crushed Seasalt to taste Method Clean up the fish, set aside. Put the water into a pot, bring to a boil and add in the carrots, tomatoes, onions and peppercorns. Simmer for a while and add in the eel. Cover, lower the heat to medium low and let the soup simmer for about 1.1/2 hours. Add salt to taste. Ladle and serve immediately. I'm sharing this recipe with  Recipe Box # 30  hosted by Bizzy Bakes
