Dense Chocolate Cupcakes

May 21, 2008

My passion for cooking started with baking, in fact I was very into baking – I have got a few legendary baking recipes such as Baked Philadelphia Cheese Cake, Urban Legend Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and a yummy range of muffins… *drool*

Forgotten when was it that I stopped wanting to bake, at least not as intensively as before. There was this period when I just can’t get the recipe right…. Just not right… didn’t feel too happy about it, thought it was a SIGN (Ha~) thats why I stopped baking for a while unless during special occasions. =)

This time round I decided to make something special to thank this fantastic group of Kinematicians for the fa-ta-bu-lous World Wide Festival.

And I wanted to tell them that they were…

*You guys know you are*

The recipe is from Nigella’s How to be a Domestic Goddess and it can also be found on at Recipezaar. I modified the recipe: Instead of using loaf tin, I used muffin tray to make the cupcakes. I also cut down on the sugar as I intend to use royal icing (can be found at Phoon Huat) for the wordings.

This recipe i must say: AWESOME! The cake was light and fluffy, great texture. Good batter for cupcake variation

BTW… something hilarious….


How does it look? Keke~


Nigella oh Nigella

I am always IMPRESSED by Nigella. Have you seen how she cooks and enjoys her food right after?! It always give me the hunger growl at night… ESPECIALLY when the show ends with her going to her fridge for midnight snack… *Feels my round tummy*… better not.

However, I must say that I am really impress by her range of tools in the show, and upon surfing her online shop, Bliss, DROOL… I love those tools… see the Classic Beech Serving Hands….. I want!!!

Another thing that distracts me is how handsome her facial features are… *jealous*.

Nigella’s show airs on Discover Travel and Living on the weekdays… A must watch every evening.
