Hello my dears…
I'm going away tmr, to the States for a 6 weeks Summer Exchange Program at UCLA. Doubt I'll have any chance to bake while I'm there… But I'll be cooking for my group of friends though, so I'll post up any recipes that I've tried and are nice. But yes, unfortunately, I'll miss my oven lots when I'm away!
I've been busy packing and getting ready for my trip, sorry I've not been updating as regularly! I may not be able to blog as much when I'm the States too, but I'll update as often as I can!
So, till I blog again, eat lots of local Singapore food for me!!! 😀
Blueberry Baby Cakes June 7, 2006Posted by thelazychef in Muffins, Cupcakes and Scones.
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… 🙂
