Coffee! I love anything that has coffee in them. :)

And I am always amazed that you are able to make so many things in 1 day. I tried a chiffon cake and cookie today and that's it - call it a day. :)

Keep it up Aunty Yo, love reading your blog. :)

Hi Yochana,

Thanks

Hi Yochana,

Why my cupcakes always shrink when place on the rack after taken out from oven. It raised like your when almost ready. Thanks

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

Take the muffins immediately from the muffin pan to prevent shrinkage. The heat at the side will cause it to shrink.

Hi Yochana,

Thanks for your reply, I did not use the muffin pan. Did you add double acting baking powder or bicarbonate of soda?

Hi Aunty, do you think I can omit the coffee paste and use more coffee powder instead?

Also is the texture of this cupcake dense or light?

joyce said...

hello aunty

what is coffee paste?

cheers
joyce

yochana said...

hi joyce,

coffee paste is just a thick paste of coffee essence. You can make your own by mixing nescafe with hot water.

yochana said...

hi missy-j,

yes you can omit coffee paste.

The texture is light.

yochana said...

hi cookienurse,

as long as the coffee is fragrant , it shouldn't be a problem.

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

yes you do need to preheat your oven before baking. This is a very important step...not a silly question tho.

Hi aunty

Is it alright to omit the bicarbonate of soda?

joyce said...

yochana said...

mj said...

Hi aunty

Tks! I hv another question, as i will not be adding any coffee paste, do i need to use more instant coffee powder?

yochana said...

Hi Mj,

I think you should add in more nescafe if you are not adding in the coffee paste.
