Merdeka Cupcakes: Exhibit B and Exhibit C



The second part of my Merdeka Cupcake quest.

By tweaking my favourtie Nuttella Cupcake Recipe and with inspiration from boo_licious, I managed to come up with another two cupcake flavours with a Malaysian twist.

Introducing Vanilla-Kaya Cupcakes and Pandan-Kaya Cupcakes!

I didn't make many changes with what I already consider to be a wonderful recipe. I just didn't put in essence while making the batter and when done, halved the completed batter, mixed in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence in one half and 1/2 teaspoon pandan essence in the other. Filled cupcake liners with batter, topped it up with about 1/2 teaspoon of kaya and swirled the kaya in with a toothpick.




I didn't manage to get my swirls as pretty as boo's but the end taste was pretty good, I felt that the eggy cupcakes were well complemented by the egg-based kaya. The pandan essence went well with the cupcakes too, very fragrant =)

Happy Merdeka to all Malaysians!
