There was an article published in The Nanyang Chronicle, a NTU newspaper on 28 Jan 2008, page 12 on Lifestyle.

It is about a 3rd year Aerospace Engineering student, Lee Sihan who loves baking...pretty impressed with her because of what she says "I love to mix and match ingredients, to just sit down and think about how different flavours can complement each other". She cited her Malibu pineapple and cranberry Earl Grey cupcakes with orange cream cheese frosting as her top creations.

She shares her one golden advice for aspiring bakers "Do not open the oven wheh it is in baking process, as it disrupts the flow of heat, and this will affect the quality of your cake."


The article share this recipe.

Cappacinno Cupcakes (Makes 6)

Ingredients:
80g of all-purpose flour
3/8 tsp of baking powder
a pinch of salt
3 tbsp of brewed coffee/espresso
1 tbsp of milk
1/2 tsp instant espresso powder
56g of butter, room temperature
110g of sugar
1 egg

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 180 deg C and line a muffin tin with 6 paper cups.
2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
3. Combine the espresso and milk. Dissolve the instant espresso powder in the mixture and set aside.
4. Cream the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until smooth, fluffy and pale. Add the egg and beat well.
5. Add the dry ingredients and espresso mixture in 3 parts, alternating and beating smooth after each addition. Add the liquid additions a little at a time to avoid splitting the batter.
6. Divide the batter among the paper cups and bake for about 20-25 mins, until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the tins for a few mins. and then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

hiya...hiya...nice meeting you here.

Actually tomorrow plan to practice what I learnt in Gina's baking class. Now can't. Mom volunteer me to learnt Tomyam soup from my brother's MIL, a Thai who is visiting Singapore. I hate it when my mom does that to me... disrupt my plans Evil or Very Mad but then, but then, free cooking lesson what!...why complain?!? grin

In fact just learnt PS (Papaya Salad) from The MIL. A while back, checked cookbooks and my SIL, did PS...wahhh! taste yucky, man! so how? And then, and then, mom volunteer me to learn PS from her ...wow!... nothing beats a demonstration and hands-on method. Last week I did the PS. It was a success...taste authentic. yummy

I hope for this recipe I can apply what I have learnt in Gina's class how to bake Cappuccino Cupcakes. The question is WHEN?!? bawling tears

Oops...sorry Gina... this got side tracked to Papaya Salad and Tomyam Soup. But need your advise, for Tomyam Soup, I will post it in http://www.kitchencapers.net/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=1537

What about PS? can you tell me which category should go? International Salad or Veggie Veggie or Asian Hot & Spicy Dish?

Hi Nora & May May,
Be warned...The MIL swear by Thai products... all her ingredients must come from Thailand Smile .

Will update next week.
