And finally I manage to satisfied my craving on chocolate cupcakes today. I baked dozens of it, have few of them just now and left over for tomorrow’s picnic! Yay. 🙂
I tend to bake when I’m stress, I guess it’s a good way to release stress. 🙂
For tomorrow’s picnic 😀
Best pair with coffee or tea on a lazy afternoon.
Good Bye April and cheers to May. Happy Labour Day everyone!

Oh, Hello Sweet Tooth!
After 2 attempts of making chocolate cupcakes 2 weeks ago, friends and family who did taste the cupcakes gives me some feedback. “It’s nice, but it would be better if it’s less sweet…” Yeap, I keep that in mind, I browse around and trying to look for a new recipe for a less-sweeten cupcakes this time. I did not manage to get one online, so I stick back with the same recipe of my chocolate cupcakes, but I slightly adjust it a bit and here’s my recipe of the Vanilla Raisins Cupcakes!
- 120g flour, 60g caster sugar, 80g butter, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence, 2 eggs, 120ml fresh milk, and last but not least I put in some raisins.
- 150g butter, 80g icing sugar, 1 and half teaspoons of vanilla essence, and a little bit of fresh milk.
Well, basically throw everything into the electronic mixture and you are done! Hahaahaha.
Bake at 150 Celsius for around 10 minutes. Oh ya, I’m baking a mini size cupcakes this time! 😀 Looking really adorable.
Sprinkle some chocolate powder (I’m using milo :P) and some chocolate rice, then you are done. 🙂 Less sweeten this time, hope family and friends enjoy this. I baked around 30 mini pcs today and it’s only left about 10pcs now! If everyone loves the taste, perhaps I will bake this again soon! 😀 Yummmmmyumm.
For those who know me well, I always spare my “second stomach” for dessert. I’m a chocoholic whereby I enjoy indulge into any types of chocolate dessert, well and that’s for sure including cupcakes. I decided to spent my Monday to fix my craving for cupcakes!
Online recipe checked. Ingredients bought. So let’s make some cupcakes! Woohoo!
Well, I did not manage to get the cupcakes tray yesterday, so I googled and had this quick fix if you do not have the tray at home in order to bake the cupcakes. It’s pretty easy to make and useful. All you need is some aluminium foil.
Mixing all the ingredients together and once it’s well combined and fluffy, it’s good to go!
Baked my first batch and it’s smell good. 🙂
I made the frosting for the cupcake as well. Since I do not have any tools at home to squeeze the frosting, so I just use the A4 paper for the deal. It works fine, but it will dirty your fingers easily. 😛
Frosting “nicely” squeeze on top of the cupcakes! Haha, I know I know it’s really ugly, it’s my first time. Lacking of experience-mah! 😦
One final step: putting some choco rice “generously” on top of the frosting. Yum, I love a lot a lot a lot of them!
And it’s DONE! 🙂
Perfect for the tea-time. Yummmmm! Tasted it and I love the combination of the fluffy cake and the sweet chocolate frosting! Might as well reducing more sugar intake for the frosting part as some of my family members and friends aren’t sweet tooth as what I am.
Anyways, that’s my Monday project this week and feel free to text or call me up for free tasting! I made a dozen of it today, so while stock lasts! Haha!
