My babies... 

Ooo…

Baby cakes…

The sound of it just sounds so cute doesn't it?

Okok, they are just cupcakes with a cuter name… Hehehehe…

I got this recipe from Gina from KC…Her version was made of cranberries but I had a pack of dried blueberries and decided to have a blueberry one instead…

This recipe uses a tub of natural yogurt, making it moist and soft.

Once again, I cut the sugar down cos my mum doesn't like cakes to be too sweet… 

Overall, I like the texture… it was fluffy and had a nice crust when it was eaten warm. (I baked it yesterday night… I just had one for breakfast this morn… the crust is no longer there but the smell of the muffin is sweeter and more fragrant!)

The sweetness complemented the slight sourness of the blueberries. So overall, it was a good recipe. Would definately try the cranberry version soon… :)

Makes 24 baby cakes

Ingredients:
110g butter
200g castor sugar(I reduced this to 180g) 
200g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
100g dried blueberries
200ml plain white yoghurt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence 

What to do! 
1. In a small bowl, add yoghurt and blueberries to mix together.
2. Let it stand for 30 mins(room temperature).
3. In a cake mixer bowl, add butter and sugar to beat till creamy.
4. Add eggs, 1 at a time to mix.
5. Add vanilla essence to mix.
6. Turn off cake mixer.
7. Add blueberry yoghurt mixture and mix with a spoon till evenly mixed.
8. Fold in sifted flour/baking powder till well blended.
9. Put paper cups into muffin tray.
10. Spoon mix into each cup.
11. Baked in preheated oven 180C for 20 mins till golden brown.
12. Serve warm.

Enjoy! :D

Hey Ben (TH)!
Hello! Yes, all the ingredients can be found at ntuc…
You may use raisins, or any other dried fruits, like cranberries…
Caster sugar is just any normal white sugar, but they tend to be the fine type, so that when you beat the butter, the sugar can melt in faster.
Vanilla essence is a kind of flavouring added to create the fragrant smell…

I would think that you don’t bake regularly, so this recipe might be a little tough for you to do, as in, you might not know how to judge when the butter is creamed enough(as in, you need a machine to whipped the butter till it turns white)
Tell you what, I’ll send you another blueberry muffin recipe(yes, you can substitute the blueberry with raisins) to your email. That is a much easier recipe(and its very very yummy!) and you don’t need a machine to cream the butter…

I’m kind of new to baking…. I was wondering if you could think of any recipes that I do over the weekends… I would like to try it out for my family.

Hello YC!

Since you are new to baking, I think you should try a recipe that is simple and fuss-free. You can give easy-peasy muffin recipes a try… something like this: http://thelazychef.wordpress.com/2006/03/06/banana-muffins/

or if you wanna do a cake, you can do this steamed cake. It’ll be an ultimate winner with the family, esp if they love chocolate!

Hope it helps!
