Carrot Cupcakes

July 25, 2010 at 12:31 pm | Posted in Birthdays, Cheese, Cupcakes, Fruit | 3 Comments

One of the birthday girls requested for carrot cake so I began leafing through my collection of cupcake/cake recipe books and came across this one. It turned out great – really moist and chockful of nuts and raisins. The cream cheese frosting, without a doubt, really complemented the cupcake.

Adapted from Cupcakes! by Eleanor Klivans:

makes about 18 cupcakes

1 cup plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 eggs
3/4 cup fine/caster sugar
2/3 cup vegetable/canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup finely grated carrots (about 2 carrots)
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius. Line muffin tin with cupcake liners.

2. Sift flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon into a medium bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the eggs and sugar until smooth and thick, about 1 minute. On low speed, mix in the oil and vanilla until blended. Mix in the flour mixture and then the carrots, raisins and walnuts.

3. Fill each liner to about 3/4 full. Bake until the tops feel firm and a toothpick/skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool the cupcakes for 10 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. Frost when cool.

In the past month or so

Blackberry Butter Bundt Cake

May 28, 2010 at 10:00 am | Posted in Cakes, Fruit | 2 Comments

I baked this for Mothers’ Day earlier in the month… knowing that my mum prefers unfrosted/unadorned cakes. It was moist and the blackberries added a nice pretty bluish-black swirl to the batter. It was the first time I used my new bundt tin and I love it! It just adds this whole rustic feel to it.

140 g butter, softened
3/4 cup caster sugar
3 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
200 g plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 can blackberries (you could use other fruit)

Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius. Grease bundt tin. (You could probably use a 9″ square/round tin.)

Cream together butter and sugar until light, 2 minutes. Add in eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated. Donโ€™t worry if the batter doesnโ€™t look smooth. Add vanilla. Stir in flour, salt and baking powder until batter is uniform and no flour remains. Fold in blackberries.

Pour into greased tin and bake for about 45 minutes or top is golden brown. Stand for about 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

no-frills recipe – baked these during the march break. a shortbread base with chocolate filling, how can this go wrong?

recipe here. made a slight modification – i replaced the light corn syrup with butter to make the chocolate filling. this will ensure that the chocolate sets hard… and of course, hundreds and thousands for good measure.

love is in the air

another member of the NIE gang got married last weekend, and I was tasked to make the cupcakes. aidah & shafiq, here’s to eternal wedded bliss!

the 200 cupcakes wasn’t daunting… it was the whole-cake-covered-with-fondant that intimidated me quite a bit. it’s someone’s wedding, mind you! and it was my first time making/decorating such a cake.

of course there were imperfections.

kamala and I arrived before the reception started to set up the cupcake table. it was fun! ๐Ÿ™‚
