Recipe Post N0.6- Valentine's Special 2018😍→πŸ’˜πŸ’—πŸ’–πŸ’‹πŸ’‘πŸ’


To dish up a cupcake of endearment and closeness, you'll need:

175g of self-raising flour

140g of caster sugar

50g of desiccated coconut 

140g of butter


½ tsp of vanilla extract

2 large eggs

4 tbsps of milk

140g of raspberries fresh/frozen

For the yummy buttercream:

280g of icing sugar

85g of softened butter

4 tbps of raspberry coulis

desiccated coconut to garnish

Method:

First and foremost, pre-heat the oven to 190℃/170℃/Gas Mark 5. Line a 12-hole cupcake tin.

Incorporate all the ingredients into a large bowl EXCEPT THE RASPBERRIES(it's in caps because it's important). Beat the other ingredients for 1-2 minutes until light and fluffy.

 Once succeeded, gently fold in the raspberries. Divide the mix between the cases, placing into the oven to bake for 18-20 minutes are until golden brown and firm to touch.

To whip up the icing, beat the icing sugar, butter and raspberry coulis in order to create a light,fluffy consistency. 

Pipe or preferably spoon on to the cooled cupcakes,sprinkling with coconut to finish. And volia! Let's keep our fingers crossed it comes out as delicious and beautiful as LOVE(see what I did thereπŸ˜‰).

Loveshots!

Recipe Post N0.5- Pancake Day 2018 Special(Blueberry Pancakes)

Happy Pancake Day!

To star with, I hope you're  enjoying your week so far. It's astounding to believe I've been making pancake specials on here for TWO YEARS in a row. It's mad. It feels like only last week I was devising a recipe post on pancakes. If you're new here, welcome to BakingBoutique's Pancake Special. As of this year, I'll be concocting American-styled BLUEBERRY pancakes which should be amusing. So, let's get right into it.

In order to put together these American-styled pancakes,you'll need:

200g of self-raising flour(this depends on how many pancakes you'll like to make)

1 tsp of baking powder

300ml of milk

a knob of butter

1 egg

150g of blueberries

golden syrup or honey to drizzle

Method(a.k.a the FUN PART):

Begin by mixing together the flour,baking powder and a pinch of salt in a fairly sizeable bowl.

Beat the egg into the milk, forging a well in the centre of the flour mix in order to whisk in the milk mix.  Beat to make a smooth batter

Eventually, eat in the melted knob of butter,gently stiring half of the blueberries. 

Finally, heat a tablespoons or two of oil into a frying pan,dolloping at least one large tablespoon of pancake batter into the pan.

 Cook for approximately three minutes until bubbles begin to form on the surface of each pancake. Flip the pancake over and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until golden brown.

A good trick is to cover the pancakes with kitchen paper to retain their warmth while you fry the rest of the pancakes. 

Serve as desired although I opted to sprinkle blueberries over the top and slightly drizzle with maple syrup.😊😁
