Cupcakes and Cake

I made this for my niece as a farewell for her before she's off to Adelaide.

These cupcakes- using the recipe from my old collection- Sour Cream Chocolate Cake.
I did not put any topping spread, just the flower deco using buttercream.
It's a bit messy, since i did this in a hurry. I was 'racing' with the kids, i have to finished deco quickly since the kids and the daddy keep on eating the plain cupcakes non-stop. I made around 20 pieces, and I only managed to deco 12.

This cake was made using the Spongy Cake recipe.I made into 2 layers. Plain vanilla flavour. In between I spread with whipped cream and blueberry fillings.

Pancake Roll

I saw this pancake roll in Jun's blog this morning. And since I have already planned to make pancakes for breakfast today, why not rolled them so that they looked more attractive.

I used my old recipe for the pancakes

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil/ melted shortening
1/2 cup chocolate chip(optional)

-heat your frying pan. no need butter if it's a non-stick pan
-mix all the ingredient(except choc chips) together in a mixer@ food processor (@ even simple blender). then mix in the choc chip if using.
-pour a scoopful over the pan. cook 1 minute each side.
-ready to eat.....

p/s the above recipe enough for 2 person.

- to make a pancake roll, pour half of the batter into the pan (to make a large pancake)
- when cooked, put on a plate
- spread some paenut butter/ chocolate spread/ honey
( I used pancake syrup) onto one side
- roll, cut into 1/2 inches
- serve warm
