Ingredients

  • 200 gm plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1.1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 75 gm caster sugar
  • 60 ml milk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 280 gm pumpkin puree (from fresh pumpkin)
Method
  1. Cut the pumpkin, remove the stringy core and seeds, steam till soft.  Scrape up the soft pumpkin and use a fork to mash up the pumpkin or you can puree it in a blender.  Measure out 280 gm.  Set aside.
  2. In another mixing bowl, whisk flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Whisk till well incorporated.
  3. In another mixing bowl, whisk oil, milk, eggs, vanilla, brown and caster sugar till well combined.  Mix in the pumpkin puree, till well incorporated.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture, stir till just moistened.  Overmixing will result in tough muffins.
  5. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop batter into a paper lined muffin pan till nearly full for a puffy dome.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 20 to 25 mins. till golden brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.  Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 10 mins. before transferring onto a wire rack to cool completely.  Muffins can be served warm too.
  7. Yield :  9 tall 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. 

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.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
