I'm fineeee

"I am as fit as a fiddle... I'm fineeee" ... thats what hb said to me bef he decided to go to work this morning eventho hes on MC.. grrrr.. MEN! .. u know what i said to him? "well ok if ur as fit as a fiddle then tonight u will hv to take us out for dinner!" period.. end of conversation.. no more argument.. he came back home earlier than usual.. probably bec he felt a little sick during lunch time..rested awhile and drove straight to the post office to send out all of our orders.. so yeah.. all settled.. those who had ordered will be getting their stuff in a few days time.. ty everyone for ur support.. will try to add more things to my store in the near future :o)

So with him back to work and me having my usual "me" time.. i decided to cook something simple for Sonia and me... bake something simple and got satisfaction out of this simple recipe.. honestly.. muffin is one of the easiest and the fastest things to do... no need for the mixer... dont need alot of effort... mix all the dry ingredients.. add in all the wet ingredients.. stir it with ur rubber spatula and bake it.. thats it!

1 3/4 cups (230 grams) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (30 grams) cocoa powder - i used cocoa berry
1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs, beaten lightly
1/2 cup (113 grams) butter - melted and cooled
3-4 ripe bananas (about 400-450 grams), mash with a fork
1 tsp pure vanilla extract - I use vanilla essence

Garnish (optional):
Chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 200'C (I used 180C) Prepare muffin paper cup (bluder cup) or a baking sheet covered with paper muffin cups for cupcakes to a smaller size. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add sugar. Mix well. Set aside.
3. In another bowl, combine bananas, eggs, melted butter and vanilla. Stir well. Pour wet ingredients into the flour mixture and stir gently with rubber spatula. Stir just enough to mix it.
4. Pour batter into paper cups. Sprinkle chocolate chips on it. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until cooked. Do the prick tests with a clean toothpick or stick. Remove from oven. Serve warm.

I like it.. hb likes it.. sonia loves it.. I am pretty sure u girls out there will like it too.. bake it for this weekend... bake it during ramadhan.. no harm done.. and like my hb always says: There is no substitute for using good quality chocolate.... it definitely tastes different!

And girls... I too used to think that van houten sounded posh ahakss

Rima said...

Memang betul.. i even used it in all my orders.. like theres no turning back after u taste valrhona and cocao barry.. if given the chance u buy valrhona in smaller quantity ok.. try and u will never want to go for other brands..

Rima said...

Rima said...

Rima said...

Tengok budak kecik ngap muffin memang cute mute..cuba kita yg tengah ngap.. mau orang kata macam perakus hahaha.. bake ok cos u muffin goddess hehe

Rima said...

Senang ajer kalau nak rupa muffin macam ferrero rocher.. lemme gv u some hint.. actually kan i already mentioned it in my old post .. nak dapat muffin yg tinggi harus kosong kan one part of the muffin tray and add water into it.. preheat oven to 200C but bake it using 180C.. ahhhh sure jadi macam ferrero rocher one hehe

To u too Ayu.. selamat menyambut bulan ramadhan yg mulia.. cant wait!

Rima said...

Oh itew dinamakan pekerja contoh dah tu bila masuk time lunch he rasa macam sakit balik.. dah doc kasi rest .. tak nak rest.. nanti bila sakit macam ayam patah leher.. haishhh
