I have baked a little during the past weeks but was really lazy to post or blog them. So here goes, three weeks of goodies.
Three Weeks back.....Green Apple Kiwi Muffins. Baked with chopped green apples and kiwi jam, these were tangy, moist and soft at the same time. Behind the apple muffins are the Chocolate Coffee Cupcakes. Fragrant, chocolately and bittersweet at the same time, these cupcakes are your perfect companion with a cup of hot coffee.
Two Weeks back....Taiwanese Pineapple Tarts. In reality, the fillings is a mixture of Wintermelon & Nata De Coco. I bought the fillings from Taiwan a couple of months back and only got round to making tarts recently. The fillings were really good. They were not sweet, have many crunchy nata de coco bits inside and free from any artificial fragrance. Strangely, it tasted like pineapple. The lovely melt-in-the mouth shortbread crust was a recipe from another blog.
The Tarts packed in the cookie bags which were also bought from Taiwan.
Another bake were these vanilla cupcakes amd cherry chocolate cakes. We have this SFS2010 training in the office and I thought it would be cool to decorate the cakes with the company and training logo. Through Zu, a friend from a cooking forum, I had her help me print these edible icing sheets with the logos.. The cakes went down extremely well with the Management and colleagues and many were intrigued as to how the logos were made.
Last Week....Fruit Pastry. Chockful of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and chopped apples. This recipe is from Vi, who mentioned that this is extremely popular in Belgium. This was confirmed by my colleague Ilse, who hails from Belgium. Doing the taste test, Ilse gave me a thumb up and an A for authenticity.
Finally today.....Custard Peach Bread. It was really not a good day for making bread as it was raining cats and dogs and the temperature has dropped tremendously. Not ideal for proving bread actually but I just had this tremendous urge for making some bread.
