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 Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
