Another Trial and Error Story

Good morning peeps. Finally, Blogger has returned to its normal self. I was trying very hard to update my entry yesterday but to no avail.

I want to share a recipe which was done some time last week. You see, I was invited to an engagement ceremony of a distant cousin. The story was, this relative of mine held a wedding reception for his son the week before. Due to my father's health condition, he couldn't make it to the ceremony. As a result, I was assigned to go to this uncle's house and of course, brought something to compensate for the absence. In other words, representing my father and in fact, the whole clan back in Melaka. The meeting was short but it ended up with another invitation. This time, the daughter was getting engaged.   

I'm familiar with the host but what I found uneasy was, I haven't met his other relatives for a very, very long time. I was pretty sure that they won't really recognise me. You know, a kind of uneasy feeling being around people you don't really know. Due to this fact, I felt that I shouldn't be arriving empty handed. Anyway, to cut a long story short, the recipe below was attempted. I could simply say that it was just like killing two birds with one stone. Pleasing the relatives and finishing the Nutella stock. I beg your pardon? The taste? Soft and moist with a rich, nutty taste. Give it a try, will you?

Nutella Cupcakes

Ingredients :
125g unsalted butter, at room temperature
125 caster sugar
125 self-raising flour
2 eggs
1/2 tsp soda bicarbonate
2 tsp of vanilla essence
2 tbsp of milk
enough Nutella to use as filling
enough paper casings to line your muffin tin

Method :
  1. Preheat the oven at 150C.
  2. Sift the flour and soda bicarbonate and keep aside.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar.
  4. Gradually, add in the eggs and the the other ingredients and mix well.
  5. Spoon the mixture into your paper casings. Top with some Nutella and spoon the remaining mixture on top.
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or till golden brown and a skewer inserted into the cupcakes comes out clean.
  7. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
  8. Serve.
