Blueberry muffins & French yogurt cake

Just a short post today, as I am quite busy right now.
And I know many of you (especially the mummies) are on your way to your holidays! Perhaps not many people are blog hopping today ;)

Back to the topic, blueberry muffins are something I wanted to bake for so long but kept on procrastinating, actually I love blueberry but I prefer to eat it on its own, rather than making it into juice/cakes.
Anyway, here's my easy recipe to make the yummylicious blueberry muffins.

Ingredients:
190g plain flour, 
2 eggs, 
1/2tbsp baking powder, 
180g caster sugar, 
150g fresh blueberries, 
125ml milk, 
1 tsp vanilla extract, 
40g butter (softened), 
pinch of salt
Steps: (preheat oven to 200'c) 1. Sift flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. 2. In a separate bowl, mix milk, vanilla extract, eggs and butter, whisk together but remember not to over mix. 3. Make a well in mixture 1, then slowly pour in mixture 2, lastly fold in the blueberries. 4. Bake at 200'c for about 20 mins or when the muffins turn golden brown.



Though blueberries are not cheap, I try not to be too stingy with them, haha xD


French yogurt cake

Ingredients:
190g flour
2 tsp baking powder
120g caster sugar
1 tbsp lemon zest
120g Greek yogurt (I can't find Greek yogurt at the mini market near my house so I use normal yogurt)
50g vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Steps:
1. Whisk flour and baking powder in a bowl, set aside.
2. In another bowl, mix the sugar with grated lemon zest.
3. Add yogurt, vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla extract.
4. Whisk to blend then fold in dry ingredients. \
5. Pour into loaf pan, oiled and floured.
6. Bake in the oven for 55 minutes, under 170'c. Let cool for 15 minutes.



I don't have a smaller loaf pan so my cake is kinda thin

But I think baking is like cooking, sometimes you don't have to follow exactly what people is doing, you need to be creative. Though my cakes are thin, when I stake 2 slices together, and even spread some cream in the middle, it makes a more attractive tea time dessert, right? =)


Til then, enjoy your weekend folks!

  8. Good idea to stack up your thin cake to make "double decker". So pandai you :) The blueberry muffins look so yummy! But I prefer to eat my blueberries fresh too. Since they are expensive and heat destroys vitamins, it's like very wasteful to bake them.

    1. i love berries, all kinds of berries.. on their own or made into juices or anything, dunno why, just love them, hahaha!! and these blueberry muffins are sure something i like~~

    2. you are indeed VERY generous with your blueberries with the muffins lah.. outside ones just use blueberry jams (barely see any blueberry) but you are not putting one blueberry but A FEW blueberries in one muffin.. that's loaded, i loike~~ :D

      Delete
    3. haha, you called it FRENCH yoghurt cake but then you are using GREEK yoghurt?? hehe, kind of funny but i know this joke is not funny at all lah.. i love the way you got creative to stack to pieces of the cake and sandwich some cream in between!! nice idea, and actually should put yoghurt instead hor if you have extra..

      Delete
    4. cooking or baking, i think as long as you are making something to eat or drink, improvise and being creative is sure more fun.. cooking/baking is an art and not science, so don't have to follow the recipe and measurement exactly lah.. agak-agak and follow what your heart thinks :)

    5. Same here, I love all berries!

      Haha, I am that generous :p

      Hehe, that's just the name la, not important =)

      Agree, don't have to follow everything exactly!

  12. My favorite muffffinnnssss!!!!! Sorry if I have gone a little hyper, Hayley. It's just that I tend to melt whenever I see cakes or muffins.

    Don't worry about not being able to visit us often, Hayley. We understand. =) Even I can feel my legs glued in the pile of assignments that have grown over the weeks. =(

  13. Another great bakes from your kitchen again.

  14. That French greek yogurt cake sounds interesting to me. I think you can get the greek ones from Tesco. Because the normal yogurt we always have is more watery that is why your cake look a bit damp. Greek one is much more thicker.

近期所用的美容产品分享篇

*还没参加抽奖游戏的朋友们,快快按这里吧~ 到今晚10点罢了哦!* (For those who have not participate in the Bangkok giveaway, click HERE before 10pm today!* *帮我的家换了形象,还好吧?^^ *
好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
满意度:8/10
每次用完后把细毛稍微清洗,然后放在附送的stand上,自然风干就可以了
电动棒也可以’振出’很多泡沫~
这些细毛也不会集水,所以很快就会吹干了
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~

包装里有两种精华分别是水性的和油性的。把两种精华混合在一起,轻轻往脸上压和拍打就可以了,不需要刻意…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)





By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
