Cranberry Orange Cupcake ~ 蔓越莓香橙杯子蛋糕

Instead of a normal sized cake, I chose to bake these cupcakes for a close family member's birthday.   Not good into frosting, I only drizzled orange glaze icing onto the cuppies to give them a facelift.   The icing was a bit translucent but nonetheless the birthday boy was very happy with the 'small' surprise!




Cranberry Orange Cupcake  ~   蔓越莓香橙杯子蛋糕
Ingredients

  • 180 gm plain flour
  • 100 gm caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 113 gm butter
  • 1.1/2 tsp  baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • zest from 1 orange
  • 60 gm dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • a pinch of salt
Orange glaze  -  50 gm icing sugar + 1 Tbsp orange juice.  Mix well to a dripping consistency.

Method
  1. Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt, set aside.
  2. Beat the butter with sugar till light and creamy.
  3. On low speed, add in the eggs one at a time.  Mix well.  Add in vanilla.
  4. Gently fold in the sifted flour alternating with the milk.  (Can also be done by hand with a spatula).
  5. Add in the cranberries and zest.  Mix till well incorporated.
  6. Using an ice cream scoop, divide the batter between the cup cake liners.  (As the liners are big, I used 2 scoops in one cup).
  7. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 25 to 30 mins till brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.  Remove from oven and let cool.
  8. Drizzle on the orange glaze.
  9. Yield :  7 cupcakes.

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

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.
