My Pregnant Pecan, Macadamia And Pine Nuts Cupcakes

NUTTY CUPCAKES....  Baking mode is ON this morning!  I have plans to do some baking today... Macadamia cookies and Pecan cupcakes, two at the same time but ended up doing cupcakes only.  Reason why?  I could not find the recipe given by my SIL in my handphone.  That is the consequences of not saving it up and also not disclosing it in my blog post.  Ahhhhh.... Now ... somebody must be thinking... "Serves you right for not sharing with us!"  LOL.... 

So I ended up making a double portion of cupcakes instead, this time I tweaked the recipe to my own liking, my cupcakes are filled with blended pine nuts, pine nuts, pecans and macadamia nuts.  They are called Nutty Cupcakes cos they got "pregnant" and kept growing and growing from their "belly" when they were in the oven.  LOL.... 

Ok, first things first.... my Nutty Cupcakes recipe.... servings for 14-16.
One whole SCS butter
130gm sugar
Cream them up... 
Add in 4 eggs, one at a time.... 
2, 3 and 4.... eggs.... 
Then I add in 200 gm of self raising flour
40 gm of blended pine nuts...
40 gm of pine nuts whole... 
Pecans and Macadamia nuts as toppings... 
And into the oven they went..... 
I baked them at 160 degrees for 20 minutes...
Some just grow bigger and bigger in the midst of baking till they nearly overflow... 
That is why I called them "pregnant" cupcakes... 
I wonder why their shapes are so uneven this time....
Maybe because of the size of their "clothing?"
Or perhaps I did not shake them properly before they went into the oven.... 
This is definitely "overgrown!"
While this size is just right.... 
Anyway, all could be eaten cos they are soft and buttery.... 
A reminder though... 
The size of the paper cupcakes must be the same!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
