Great .. thanks aunty .. Last doubt, isn't 10gm of baking powder alot ?

yochana said...

Hi Maha,

for Muffins, normally you need more baking powder, so 10 gm. is correct.

Aunty,

I have left over fresh cream and want to apply on the muffin for decor. However, I don't have piping bag, mm any idea how to decor it w/o a piping bag ?

Another issue, how to choose the piping bag's nozzles ? Does it comes as a set if I purchase the piping bag ?

Thanks anuty :)
Maha

Hi Maha,

Nozzles can be bought individually. Fill the whipped cream into the piping bag and then cut across the tip and pipe it out as plain rings and rosettes.

Hi Aunty,

I have try baking the muffin, but top always turn out to be a bit hard and on the next day, the muffin will become very dry and hard.

Please advise. Thanks.

Hi Pinky,

Try adding in extra eggs. It could be due to your eggs. Buy extra large eggs.

Hi Yochana,


I tried baking the muffins...but turn out quite hard and dense.

After i cream the sugar and butter and add in the eggs, the eggs does not blend into the creamed butter, instead, the eggs curdle together like "mashed chinese tofu". And once i add in the milk, the whole mixture become watery, the eggs, milk and butter did not blend but separate. IS it something went wrong? Should the mixture turn out watery or should still be in creamy form?

Appreciate your advice.

Hi Rachel,


mmm...how come your muffins becomes dense?? During beating if the mixture cuddles, add in some flour and mix and should be smooth after that. Always use room temperature ingredients.

Hi Yochana,

For your recipe, i supposed the muffin shd taste light and soft right?

For mine, it really tasted hard and not light at all..so i thought it was due to the cuddle of the mixture when i add in the egg...but the mixture turns watery when i add in milk-is it also something wrong? I beat in the milk using the mixer.

Hi Rachael,

Did you whisk the egg white? I think you should try this recipe again. It's quite simple to do..
