I have a confession to make, I am actually unable to bake cookies. For some odd reason, my cookies never come out right. I remember making my first batch of oatmeal cookies from scratch. Not only did they taste funny, but they were possibly burnt; I was 15. The first time I made premade cookies (they kind you just put into the oven and bake it for however long and you’ll have perfect cookies), I under baked them then I burnt them. Recently I tried to make Pillsbury Easter cookies, and I put the oven on broil instead of bake and, well, you can guess the results. So, to me, it is a miracle the biscotti turned out fine.
I actually decided to try and make biscotti because my piano teacher requested them. Thanks to this recipe, my piano teacher thinks that I would make a wonderful girlfriend. She is basing this purely on the fact that I make basically whatever dessert she wants to eat. It’s not really girlfriend material, I’m just REALLY bored
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.
