And so, the lazychef reappears again… March 20, 2008

Posted by thelazychef in A note from thelazychef.

Sorry I’ve been missing for such a longgg time…

I’m currently in my final year in University and I’ve been super super busy with projects and reports. Am still struggling with my final year report! Urgh!

Over the past few months, I been trying some new recipes(some successful and some not too successful…haha!) but I have not had the time to update regularly!

My apologies also to all those who left me comments! I have tried my best to reply most of them! Hope it helps!

I have posted a recipe on Yogurt Marble Cupcakes. I totally enjoyed this cupcake. It was simple, moist yet there was a twist of vanilla and chocolate flavour in each bite! *drools*

I’ll try my best to post up a couple more recipes that I have tried recently!

Till then, have fun drooling/baking everyone! hehe… 😀

2 tsps vanilla extract

Ingredients (B) –
whisk together till smooth
2 tsp instant coffee granules
37g unsweetened cocoa powder
70g sugar
60 ml water

Ingredients (C)
2 eggs

Ingredients (D) –
sift together 225g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp plus 1/8 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

240 ml unsweetened nonfat yogurt

1) Preheat oven to 180C.Grease a 21 cm tube pan.

2) Cream butter and sugar in (A) till light and creamy. Beat in vanilla. Dribble in (C) slowly, about 1 tbsp at a time, beating constantly for about 2 mins*

3) On LOW speed, beat in 1/3 of (D). Mix until just combined. Beat in ½ the yogurt. Beat in 1/2 of the remaining flour mixture, followed by the rest of the yogurt. Lastly, beat in the rest of the flour. Take care not to overmix.

4) Measure out about half of the batter and fold in (B). Set aside.

5) Alternate large spoonfuls of the white and chocolate batters into the pan.

6)Use a table knife to marble the batters together in a zig-zag or circular motion, taking care not to blend them too much.

7) Bake for 45 to 50 mins till skewer inserted comes out clean. 8)Cool in pan for 10 mins. Unmold and cool completely.

* if mixture curdles after adding in eggs, try adding in 2 tbsps of the flour mixture and beat on LOW. Mixture should look smoother, continue adding flour and yogurt.
