Hearty Day: Cookie Dough Cupcakes with Flour Frosting

18 Feb

I was thinking of making a heart-shaped cake but I wanted something easy and quick so I’d still have a little more Me-time. So this is me baking on a Sunday weekend.

 Thankfully, Valentine’s Day fell on Monday. I hate it when places are so crowded you can hardly stroll around. Besides occasions like this creates some kind of drama and high expectations – fancy dinner, flowers, gifts. In short, STRESS! – well, that’s our BFs to worry about.

preparing cookie dough…

combined the rest of the ingredients to make the dough

fresh from the oven!

ready to frost now!

The cookie dough is so moist. Moist that it came to a point that I overbaked the chocolate cake because I thought the inside is uncooked. But when it’s all done, it made me crave for more. Still, I’ll have to change the chocolate cake recipe to make the texture more like Chocolate Cupcakes. It’s too dry for me – yes, like Sahara-dry.


This is not the first time I made these. 


  I. Must. Make. These. Again!

No-hoper: Carrot Loaf

1 Feb

Our pet dogs are so lucky being a snacker of this Carrot Loaf. Why? Because they seldomly get to taste these kind of food. And by them being lucky means me messing up something. Yes! Too bad  😦  I tried to do another version of Carrot Cake but instead doing it in a regular round baking pan I baked them in these mini loaf pans. I thought two loaf pans are just enough to yield the recipe but I was wrong – cake came out underbaked. I wasn’t expecting that. I checked them with a cake tester! The tester came out clean but after having them cooled and inhaling all the aromatic scent of cinnamon I sliced them up carefully then there goes the batter running down the serving plate! At this point, I just wished I’d find a dwarf who can make this all set just like they spin straw into gold.




I tried to put them back to the oven I didn’t expected them to baked just as they should – and they didn’t  😥  oh well there’s always a second time. Lesson learned!


I did not take a photo of the messed up ones. One of them baked just fine so we still had something to smack – and it tasted good!

Ooey Gooey: Fudgy Chocolate Cupcakes with Boiled Icing

24 Jan

There are chocokate cravings, and then there are CHOCOLATE CRAVINGS.

As I went around the kitchen making Mud Krunch I was thinking of making cupcakes.. I was craving them. You know the ones so dense and intense that it takes a whole lot of guilt after finishing up 6 cups.

That’s what my Thusday afternoon is about – Fudgy Chocolate Cupcakes. I knew I couldn’t go wrong with this recipe as I’ve had so many utensils to lick. 😀 These cuppies has two whole cups of sugar. See  there’s more sugar than flour in these cupcakes. At first I was hesitant to put them all 2 cups but when I tasted them, it came out very gooood. I ate three while I was baking them. Just when I’m not allowed to eat anything with eggs. Wheew I can’t help it! Crisis averted.
