It was my daughter's 13th birthday and so I gave in to her raving about a sort of "tea/baking party". We did not plan anything for that day, because we bought her favorite pair of shoes days ago and she had invited a few of her classmates to go to Meidolls Cafe. But no, I didn't want that day to be wasted. So I whipped up a plan, headed to the grocery and grabbed quickly the stuff I need for a decent dinner, one that somehow my family would call special.
Also, I need to make some experiments on how we will do my Dana's birthday cupcakes on her party on May. Good thing Baker's Depot has a branch at Waltermart Pasong Tamo. So we were able to buy a few items I lack and will be needing for that preparation.
1 bar butter,softened 1/2 tsp. Baking soda
2 cups sugar 1/2 tsp iodized salt
1/2 cup whole eggs 1 cup evap milk
1/4 tsp vanilla 1/2 cup light syrup
1 tsp. Baking powder 3/4 cup cocoa
2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
Mix cocoa and flour in a bowl, set aside. Mix and beat all ingredients, adding cocoa-flour mixture last. Pour on a cupcake lined pan. Bake for 20-25 mins at 350*F. Cool before frosting.
The last picture shows my daughter, Danielle (the celebrant) decorating the cupcakes. One batch or recipe makes 22-25 cupcakes.
