I discovered I had a whole packet of mini chocolate chips, and didn’t know what to do with them. So I decided to make my vanilla cupcakes and added in the mini chocolate chips for an extra treat. Topped with delicious simple chocolate buttercream. Such a lovely combination!
This muffin is pretty much my childhood. My mother was the baker of the house, and she would always make this treat for us kids to devour. This is her recipe, and I am so happy to share it with you guys, as this was the first thing I have ever baked.
Time for brownies!
So this week, I decided to make an attempt at these chocolate tartlets…
“Maxine, Ye Ye requested your chocolate cake.”
“What? Again? He doesn’t want me to make something new?”
“No, he told both your uncle and auntie to tell me that he wants your cake again.”
This week, I used Stephanie Jaworski’s (Joy Of Baking) recipe to make a chocolate tart (or pie). She calls it a pie, while I call it a tart since my crust is shallow and I baked it in a tart pan (my peers call it a tart as well, so I just call it that as well).
I had two helpers, which really helped with my picture-taking, since I am usually grabbing an equipment while trying to snap a good photo.
So my sister is leaving for Melbourne in a few days, and she demanded I make her favourite: brownie cupcake. This is pretty much a chocolate cupcake, and I call it a brownie cupcake simply because it has that cracked surface that reminds me of brownies, not because it is fudgy and dense- that would be too filling. However, an extra step you can do is to add in some melted chocolate into the centre (which my sister loves).
