Sorry for the late update everyone! Anyways, onwards to the recipe!
This was a recipe that my friend IT gave me after my birthday one year. I received champagne/ sparkling wine for my birthday and there was some leftover. I had no idea what to do with it, until IT brought over a new recipe she really wanted to try out. So she came over in the middle of the night and I baked as she sat at my kitchen table exclaiming and giving opinions of how things should be done. At the end of the night, champagne cupcakes came to be.
It is important to make sure you whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Also, you have to be very Gentle when you fold the egg whites into the batter, or else the cupcakes will not come out light and fluffy
There have been some serious technical difficulties on my side. Both in and out of my kitchen.
Fear not! There will be two posts this week to make up for it!
These cupcakes came into being during Valentine’s Day this year. I have never failed to get terribly sick on Valentine’s Day. Every year during Valentine’s Day, I was usually stuck in bed with a fever. This year, surprisingly, I wasn’t sick! To celebrate, I decided to make red velvet cupcakes. Sadly, I couldn’t for the life of me get the colour right. So I gave up and called them chocolate cupcakes instead.
This recipe is actually really really easy. I decided to make this recipe because it’s Easter, and well, much like Valentine’s Day, what is Easter without chocolate? The recipe usually yields at least 24 cupcakes, but it could be because I prefer smaller cupcakes. So you have been warned.
Cheesecake cupcakes are a good twist from the usual cupcakes, and surprisingly easy to make. Really, this recipe is for the cheesecake lovers who can’t help but finish the entire cake on their own. This way, you get a little bit of cheesecake without feeling too guilty.
This was actually a birthday present to two of my friends who were born on the same day. Since high school, I have baked them a cake for their shared birthday and was looking for something new to try that year. I wondered if I could turn a cheesecake into cupcakes so I went and tried it. The result was not bad at all.
This recipe for banana bread really is quite simple. It’s one of those recipes you make on a Saturday night when you have absolutely nothing to do. I eat my bananas until there are only 3 bananas left and just leave them to ripen. You can always buy overripe bananas if you’re in a hurry to make banana bread of course.
The first time I made this recipe was when my dad really wanted me to get rid of the overripe bananas sitting in our kitchen. I wasn’t about to eat the almost black bananas so instead I went and looked up recipes using overripe bananas. After finding a recipe and trying new combinations, I was finally left with the recipe that I use.
