Now that I am starting to bake more, I am feeling happier! Haha 🙂
That’s quite weird right, but I de-stress by baking, just like what a lot other ladies do too! I guess this is better than shopping to de-stress lol.
Can’t wait to launch a mini bake sale soon!
The other morning, I chanced upon a simple steamed cupcake recipe posted on Healthy Food for My Baby Facebook group. Decided to make those cupcakes as breakfast for hubby and myself (not baby hahaha!).
The original recipe uses milo powder, which I changed to instant coffee, because that was what we had in the pantry. I probably will want to try using cocoa powder next time!
I had been searching for simple steamed cupcake recipes, but had not been getting down to making one, because most would need to beat eggs and sugar till ribbon stage. I don’t think I wanna do this early in the morning *flex arm muscles* haha!
So I was very happy to have seen this recipe. And this is not a very sweet steamed cupcake – perfect for breakfast! However, I noticed that the recipe uses a little more on baking powder. I am using aluminum free one, which I bought from Phoon Huat.
Oh ya, and can I say I am in love with Old Town’s Hazelnut Coffee? Hee 🙂
