Sour Cream Cuppies
Well, I did a banana bread and still left with alot of sour cream. So, upon some googling, spotted a sour cream cupcakes recipe.
Here's how the cupcakes turn out. It's very moist! However, the original recipes called for 200gm of sugar, which I think will be too much, so I reduced 20gms. Also added almond essence to make it more flavourful.
Here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy 2013!

Am glad to say, the ondeh ondeh turned out great! Here are the pics to share....

Purple Sweet Potato Chiffon Cake
As all bakers do, wherever I go, I am always on the lookout for baking supplies shop. Japan is known for having delicate baked goods, good quality flour etc. So how can I not try any cakes and pastries and also hope to bring home some of those flour!
I was lucky that my hubs is always so supportive of my hobby. I planned to go to Kappabashi and Tokyu Hands, after doing some research about baking supplies in Tokyo. And I am happy to report that I did manage to buy what I had set out to. :)
Here are my loot....
|Agar agar powder, green tea powder, sweet potato powder, coca powder from Cooking Class, located at Mori Towers, Roppongi Hills|
|Chocolate bread premix, Cake flour and Bread flour from Tokyu Hands|
I was delighted to spot a square chiffon tin in one of the shop in Kappabashi. And i bought it without any hesitation.
After I returned, while grocery shopping at Sheng Shiong, I saw a box of purple sweet potatoes on sale! Immediately, I bought some, wanting to try out the square chiffon tin during the weekends.
I shortlisted the recipe posted by Happy Homebaker, and is very pleased to report that the cake turned out very well. The sweetness and moisture is just right!
