Hi, my friend intro me to ur blog.. and i tried the receipe today.. this is the FIRST time i tried baking ... but i have some questions.. hope u can help me.. ur sugar is 120gm ya?
and when i mixed the sugar and salt in... the sugar dun seems to melt.. and after i baked.. i still taste the sugar bits... i used fine sugar.. issit ok?

as for the milk i replaced it with evaporated milk... it is ok rite?

regards
Sharine..

yochana said...

Hi Sharine,

seems like your fine sugar is not fine enough. It should have melted after baking.

Evaporated milk is fine. No problem, in fact it's more tasty.

Hi Aunty,
Happy weekend, more baking for you, right?

I had tried your Choc-chip muffin before without using buttermilk, instead I used evaporated milk,the texture is a bit dry.I would like to bake gain, should I add more milk or what should I add to improve the texture if I do not have buttermilk? Tks.

Rgs, Kium

sharine said...

hi this is sharine again... i tried baking... but i have a few more problems...

1. the texture is dry...
i am using micro-oven.. hmm i wonder if it affects... i use only 150 for 25 mins and the color looks ok... i use 180 20 mins and it almost got burnt...

2. according to ur receipe it says add butter and rub with fingertips till it resembles breadcrumbs..but i cannot make it till like breadcrumbs... it become more like a paste?
hmm... can u teach me how to do it.. and

3. my friends said it is too salty .. is it because i need to use unsalted butter then i add salt like wat u wrote?

i add salt as per instructed but i use normal butter.. is that the reason?

pls advice.. thanks...

i hope i can prefect my muffins.. =)

sorry for the trouble

Hi Dear Yochana,

I like to bake some of these for my godson's 1st month this Sun, 29 Jun. I wonder if I can swop a portion of the flour for cocoa powder and replace the chopped choc for choc chips instead? How do I proportion them? Help thanks!

yochana said...

Hi gardenia,

Use 250 SR flour + 30 gm. cocoa powder.

for chocolate chips, use the same weight required. No changes.

Gardenia said...

Hi Dear Yochana,

Thanks for the prompt reply!

Hi Yochana,

Must we add salt if we use normal butter? Can I use caster sugar instead of fine sugar because my fine sugar also don't seem to melt?
Thanks

Hi Yochana

Simply loves your blog!

I would like to ask whether we need to preheat the oven first? And do we have to place the empty muffin tray in the oven during the preheat process?

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Diana,

yes you need to preheat your oven at least 10 mins before baking and you do not have to place your empty muffin pan in the oven during preheating.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

I have try baking the muffin, but the muffin is a bit hard and dense inside. Why is it so?

When I mix the butter, it is a bit dry and lumpy. The butter resembled to the butter for chocolate chip cookie. Could it be I have put too few wet ingredient?

Thank you

Hi Aunty,

Hello Aunty Yochana,

The muffins are gone as soon as I say that it is ready to be eaten. So lovely and delicious.

However mine was a little crusty on the outside of the muffin. Could it be that the oven temperature is too hot?

Thank you for sharing once again!

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Vivian,

it might be the oven temp sometimes, it could be others things like using coarse sugar or small egg or too large eggs. so keep baking and you'll improve.

Vi Vian said...

Hello Aunty Yochana,

Thank you for your advice. I think yees you are right. You recipe required a large egg but I think mine was a medium egg.

I will keep trying and keep you updated :)

Vi Vian said...

Hello Aunty Yochana,

Thank you for your advice.

I think you are right because i use only a medium egg. I will indeed continue baking :)

Hi, I used a rubbing in method but it doesnt look like breadcrumbs it look more like a paste. Please advise what's wrong ? My butter is still hard.

Hi Yochana

Got to know your blog thro Scrapabee. Did the muffins this morning using my new oven. My hubby finds them delicious but I find that though the muffins are soft, it sticks to my teeth. Could it be because I used the hand-held electric mixer to mix/beat the batter? Overdid it?

Baking gal said...

Hi Aunty
Just tried baking these muffins over the weekend. It's really yummy! However, there are some things I think I can improve on as this is my first attempt. Hope you can help me on this.

1. How big must the breadcrumbs be like after rubbing in?

2. When mixing the wet ingredients to the dry ones, how far should I stir? Should I stir till it becomes a paste without lumps?

Thanks aunty!

Hi aunty yochana,
can i check with you if the butter should be cold or leave it to room temperate first??
