Hi Angela,

I just followed the recipe in the books and filled the paper cups less than 3/4 but slightly above 1/2.

Hello, Yochana,

The cupcakes looks so lovely and yummy. I wonder if I can't get any buttermilk, what composition can I create for buttermilk?



Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Jenny,

No need to buy Buttermilk if you can get it. For your info, Buttermilk is easily available in Singapore.

Here is the substitute:

1 cup of fresh milk + 1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice or
Vinegar. Let it sit for about 5 to 10 mins. before using.

Hi aunty,

all your cupcakes looks so lovely. My cupcakes' paper cup always open/drop the next day. Is this due to the paper cup of low quality or any other reason ?

thank you.

hi leeping,

I have come across this problem too. I think the cake is on the oily side, making it leave the paper. It's the mixing of the butter into the must do it gradually.

Hi aunty,

1 1/2 cup of self raising flour is how many gm of flour?

If I use cake flour instead of self raising flour, will there be any difference in the texture?


Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Nicole.

1 cup of flour is about 145 gm.

Yes you can use cake flour instead of self-raising flour but u must add in 1 tsp. of baking powder and 1/4 tsp. of Bicarbonate of soda.

Hi Yochana,

Can you pls advise where you get buttermilk (halal) in Singapore? Thanks!

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

Buttermilk halal?? I'm not too sure. I used Dairy Farmers Buttermilk from Australia.

Hi aunty yochana,

may i know is it possible to bake 2 dozens of cupcakes at the same time? Can i put one tray in the middle rack and the other at the bottom? Will they turn out evenly? Or do i bake one batch at a time? Because i bake 50 cupcakes for a friend's party and this recipe sounds great. Thank you.
