Today, this blog completes one year. How time flies!!! My mind was preoccupied with the thoughts of my Dad's surgery that I completely lost track of it. A reminder from wordpress put me back on track...Being the first anniversary, I had to make something special. The first thought was to make Pina C
- 2 cups Flour
- 1 tablespoon Baking powder
- 1 teaspoon Salt - (I omitted this as I used salted butter)
- 1/2 cup Unsalted butter
- 2 cups Sugar
- 1 - 1/4 cups Coconut milk - (medium thick)
- 1 - 1/2 teaspoons Coconut extract - (I used pineapple essence)
- 5 Egg whites
Sieve the flour along with baking powder and salt(if using) .
Beat butter in a bowl for a minute on medium speed.
Add the sugar and beat for another minute.
add the coconut milk and essence and mix well.
Gradually add the flour mixture into the butter mixture and beat for 2 minutes.
In another bowl, beat the egg whites till stiff peaks are formed.
Fold the egg whites into the flour mixture until well incorporated.
Pour inot the cupcake moulds.
Bake in a preheated oven of 180C for 15- 20 minutes.
Let cool completely before frosting.
You can bake a cake using the same mixture.�Bake it in 180C for 23-28 minutes or till the skewer comes out clean.�Please note that the time taken in each oven varies from one another.�Keep a check to ensure that your cake is done right.
