29022012 Breakfast: Sweet Corn aka Jagong Muffins

Did this before I go to bed last nite... for my gals' Breakfast this morning.
~~~ Sweet Corn Muffins ~~~
Smells so Yummilicious Good when it's fresh out from the OVEN!!! :D
As a mum, This is the most SATISFYING moment :D hehee...
~ ~ ~ Back to Basic ~ ~ ~

I did this with my Secondary School's 武林秘籍 :D with a little modification. Makes 12 Muffins with that Ikea Muffin Pan.

180g Self Raising Flour
1 tbsp Custard Powder (mine is vanilla flavour de)
120g Unsalted Butter
100g Sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp Vanilla essence
4 tbsp Cream Corn (those from can)

Preheat oven @ 180 degress celcius
Mix at highest speed, butter, sugar and egg+ vanilla essence for 10 mins
(meanwhile, can place paper cups in muffin pan)
Add in cream corn and mix for about 1 minute
Sift in Flour and custard powder
(Then suddenly I remember my CC cake instructor, Richard Goh)
I fold in the flour mixture with my hand lor!!! :D LOLOLOLLL.... :))) hahahaa...
I pour the cake mixture into a piping bag and fill up each cup till 3/4 full.
Lastly, top each cup mixture with a tsp scoop of cream corn

Bake for 20 minutes. Switch to top heat and bake for further 5 mins.

Cool in pan for at least 10mins before taking them out of the muffin pan. Make sure the muffins r completely cooled before u store them in a air-tight container.

Before I serve, I will reheat in microwave for 8 seconds. Yummmmmy!!! :D

Steamed 7-Up Pandan CupCakes

I was laughing out so much watching Dr Jiajia's Singlish 17. Inspired by Dr Jiajia's "I Kiwi, not Kway Neng" video, I steamed some green kway neng goh for my gals today :D Hehee...

I browsed the web for some simple recipe and came across DG's blog. I did a little modification coz i'm making Pandan version instead of Matcha.

4 Eggs
1/2 cups Caster sugar
1.5 cups Self-raising flour
1 tsp Pandan Paste
50ml 7-Up or Sprite

Use high speed beat eggs till fluffy, add in sugar and beat till soft peak
Add in Pandan Paste till no "marble-effect"
Fold in Flour till well-combined
Add in 7-up till well-mixed
Pour into cups/moulds
Steam for 15mins

Something to share about Dyslexia

My little Tessa is Dyslexic... But its seriously very frustrating that there is so little awareness HERE in Singapore! Its surprising to ALL that Our very important and famous ex-Prime Minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew was dyslexic too!!!! but I wonder WHY is this not known to almost everybody in this region?

Thank you Dr JiaJia for creating and sharing this video. U made me tear :P Can my Tessa be your friend? :P hehee...

Singapore Chilli Crab by my Hubby

Hubby bought me a RangeMate Multi cooker for microwave as Valentine's Day Present :( sianz... zzzz.... LOL :D

He used it to cook American Ginseng Chicken soup last sunday for dinner. Today, he used it again to cook Singapore Chilli Crab with 15 Lala (some species of shell fish).

Looks more like his own toy rather than mine =P haha!

Anyway, with idoit-proof premix by Prima Taste, Rangemate cooking is a breeze! We can enjoy yummy Chilli Crab at home within 15 mins, including preparation time and cooking. No mess, No sweat :D and can eat as "unglam-ly" as i wish... without worrying ppl staring at me digging into the crab shells :D. hehee...

Mini Berries Tartlettes

I used to roam in the shopping malls in Orchard Road during my teenage days. Delifrance was something considered quite "atas" to me then... I love to stare at those pretty strawberry tarts which were displayed neatly in the cake fridge. I admired those ppl ordering and eating them. =D Those days I can only admire others coz I had very limited $$ in my pocket :(

After taking up part-time jobs to top-up my schooling expenditure, I happily joined the Q at Delifrance, ordering their mouth-watering Strawberry Tart and Cappacino. But hor, how to eat har??? It's so unglam opening up my mouth so big!!! and if i were to cut the tart into 2, all the custurd filling will go all over the plate!!! dun expect me to lick the plate rite?!!!!??

Hahaa... So i know, eating tart is messy! So, I buy and take-away lor!!! Tapao, then go home and eat can oredi lor!! :D. and i did :D. BUT, by the time i reached home, all the strawberries r detached from the tart liao :(. so messy :(. and so, I told myself.... no more tarts from Delifrance anymore >:(

But i still love berries and tarts... just dunno how to eat them nicely in public :P

Today, I made these mini tartlettes, filled with my very own "Not so sweet" vanilla custurd filling, topped with my favourite Korean Strawberries and blue berries. YUMMMMMM...... :D

coz its so mini, i can stuff the whole thing in my mouth and ENJOY! Not Messy, Not Unglam ;-) Hahaa...

Penang Prawn Noodles by Gurney Drive 滨城虾面

Had craving for Penang Hay Mee the whole nite :D. so hubby drove me to this little shop at AMK Jubilee called Gurney Drive. I had Hay Mee and Tessa had the Lor Mee. Nice =)

But I still feel tat the one sold by that Ah Beng and his mum at the opposite S-11 food centre 10+ yrs ago is better. Ah Beng dun mend the stall anymore. The new tenant's recipe is not so good compared to his :( anyway, this Gurney Drive noodle can at least satisfy my craving ;-). hehee...
