Pineapple Cupcakes and Mixed Berries Macarons

Morning everyone! I notice everyone have geared into either making Raya cookies or trying new recipes for Iftar...me!!!??? I'm still trying to catch up with the list of recipes that I wanted to try....but am achieving so little! Ramadhan month which usually was quiet, somehow presented me with quite a bit of work to attend to in the office....and the traffic in the morning and driving home after work has so far been horrendous! By the time I got home, I had about an hour to prepare for Iftar......and my kitchen would cleaned and all tucked in and settled by 9.30! By then, I would have been too exhausted to bake anything, other than some simple cakes or cookies. I have made Butter Cookies and Pierre Herme's Choc Sable, but they are all gone already! Think I really have to start making my cookies this weekend!

Anyway, this were the cuppies that I prepared for Iftar on Saturday! Pineapple Cupcakes....easy to make very moist and one that I have wanted to try for quite sometime....
Ingredients
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 cup corn oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups canned crushed pineapple (drained slightly) 
Method
1. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.
2.In another bowl, whisk eggs and sugar until pale. I used my wooden laddle.
3.Whisk in corn oil, and vanilla until well incorporated.
4.Add in pineapple and sour cream and mix until fully incorporated.
5.Fold in flour until nicely mixed.
6.Divide amongst lined cupcake pan, bake at 160C for about 30 minutes.
Cream Cheese
250g cream cheese
125g butter
2 cups sifted icing sugar...I made mine to taste
1 tsp vanilla extract
Dried Shaved coconuts

Cream butter until pale, add cream cheese and whisk until light. Add icing sugar Add icing sugar bit by bit and keep whisking. Add some whipping cream if you like, I do!!

Since I made a full recipe of the cuppies, I shared with my friends who live in the neighbourhood!

Got this recipe from http://glorioustreats.blogspot.com/
....and these! Probably another love of my life macarons....Mixed Berries Macarons with Cream Cheese laced with Mixed Berries paste! A new flavour!Love it love it love it!
Baked using Mastrad Silicon Templates.
I don't do orders during Ramadhan, but this a favour for Aisyah Red Velvet Cuppies!

Have a brilliant weekend....hope I got my baking mojo to make kueh raya, woohoo! Bye peeps!
