I like the quick and easy recipe - what is chocolate emulco? I've not heard of that in UK. Is there something else I could use?

Oh, and confinement lady? Is that someone who comes in to help you for a month when you are in confinement?

Hi, choco emulco is a thick cocoa paste use in bakes to enhance the chocolate taste.

Yes, CL help to cook n take care bb for 28 days :)

Hi Peng, welcome back. I love the non-oven steam chocolate cake, however i am unable to make the chocolate frosting, as it just doesnt get harden.

anyway, im going to try this chocolate chip cupcakes. where can i buy chocolate emulco in singapore?

and any idea whts the diff btw muffin and cupcake?

Peng said...

U can get chocolate emulco from cold storage or baking specialty store like Phoon Huat. Muffin has more liquid content (milk & oil) than cupcake. Muffin has slightly denser texture than cupcakes which are fluffier & more buttery taste.

Hi. I would like to try this recipe for my daughter's bday. Can I skip the choc chip? is the choc flavoured for this recipe strong enough? if i prefer it to be more chocolaty, how do i modified it? tq

Peng said...

Cindy..yes u can skip the choc chip if u want. Use a better quality cocoa powder will gives a better choco flavour like Dutch cocoa or valhorna. You can increase the cocoa powder to 20gm and reduce the SR flour to 210gm.

I tried this recipe last night,without doing any amendment on the ingredients except omitting the choc chip(becoz i dont have it at home). It turns out great!I ate one this morning and it's still moist.I'm planning to use this recipe for my daughter's coming b'day.Thank you soooo muchhh for this easy all in one recipe, as i'm not good at "beat the butter and sugar until fluffy" method.

But i got i problem, that's the cupcake liner tends to pull away from the cake...do u have any idea on this?
I dont want to use those sturdy paper cup becoz i want to make it easier for the kids to peel it off.

Cindy...great to know that u like the recipe :D If using 'waxed' cupcake cases the cake will pull away, normal paper liner should not have to problem.
