Soft and Fluffy! Pork Floss Cupcake

By Wednesday, July 04, 2012

It's amazing how small the world is. We had a common friend who linked us up, as we both love to bake. Interestingly we've been talking on watsapp, discussing about baking courses, KA mixer and ovens.

Then, I realized both of us are working in the same organization... and we both joined not too long ago. What a small world! Or is this some form of affinity? Given our "proximity" at work,  I do look forward to a friendship that might blossom, and perhaps even come together one day to bake.

Strangely, I've been baking on weekday nights more than weekends. And this was something that brightened my day... because it tasted very good! My dear even texted me to let me know how much he enjoyed eating it.

I was trying to use whatever ingredients on hand, and came upon this recipe.

Like what Min mentioned, the batter is thick, and quite difficult to stir. So I modified it a bit by adding more milk, and topped with mayonnaise (inspiration from my ham and cheese bread)

Piping hot from the oven... and my new table provides a lovely backdrop for photos =)

(A) 45g milk
      35g canola oil
      20g sugar

(B) 65g cake flour
      10g corn flour
      2g milk powder
     1g baking powder

(C) 3 egg whites
      1/4 tsp cream of tartar
      55g sugar

Toppings: pork floss, ham, and mayonnaise

Beat (A) lightly till the sugar dissolves
Sieve (B) and add into (A). Stir to combine
Add in the egg yolks, one at a time. Beat well after each addition.
Using a mixer, beat egg whites (C) till stiff peaks form.
Mix egg whites into (A+B)
Pour into moulds and bake at 160C for 25 mins.

Spot the cat! Even she couldn't resist walking over haha...
