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!

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
