Stir and whisk well until the sugar dissolves well with the milk.  Now gradually add the flour and whisk. Add the remaining milk and continue to whisk until the batter forms a thick dropping consistency. Pre heat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius. Take cupcake liners and arrange it into the cup cake cavity mould or use aluminium cups. Fill up the liners with the batter. Fill upto 3/4 of the quantity of the liner. Sprinkle the chopped almonds and few saffron strands on the top. Bake the cupcakes for 20 - 25 minutes at 180 degree celsius. Insert a tooth pick and check if the cupcakes are done after 20 minutes.

Bolo Rei - King’s Cake

Merry Christmas to all...


Bolo Rei (King’s Cake) is a traditional Portuguese cake that is eaten around Christmas, that’s 25th December to 6th January. There won’t be any Christmas without Bolo Rei on the table. Each family in Portugal either buys or makes it at home during the season. 
This recipe made it’s way to Portugal from France during the 19th century when Confeitaria Nacional opened it’s official bakery in 1829. The Confeitaria was the first to introduce this recipe. 
Although it is called a cake,  Bolo Rei is more like a sweet bread.  Traditionally there is a large fava bean and a coin placed inside the Bolo Rei. And the one who gets the bean has to make the cake  for the following year and the one who gets the coin, is the lucky one. 
Normally you can add 50 ml of Port wine into the dry fruits and keep it for overnight but I haven’t add the port wine into my recipe. The dough is kept overnight for rising, but I kept it for 2 hours. 
Here is my version of the recipe - 


Ingredients
500 grams All Purpose Flour 
125 ml Lukewarm Milk
65 grams Caster Sugar 
1 sachet / 11 grams Dry Yeast 
2 Eggs
1 Egg white
100 grams Butter
2 tbsp Candied Apricot chopped 
2 tbsp Candied Cherry chopped 
2 tbsp Raisins chopped 
2 tbsp Black Raisins chopped
1/2 cup Dried Fruits chopped
2 tbsp Walnuts chopped 
2 tbsp Almond chopped 
2 tbsp Cashews chopped 
1 Egg yolk to brush 
2 tbsp Powder Sugar for sprinkle 

For Garnishing 
Ingredients 
1 tbsp Almond chopped 
1 tbsp Walnut chopped 
1 tbsp Dried Fruits
1 tbsp Candied Apricot sliced 
1 tbsp Candied Cherries whole 
Some Lemon Candied peels sliced 

Method 
Take 1/2 the quantity of the lukewarm milk, add 1 tbsp of caster sugar, stir the milk, then add the yeast.  Stir it once again and let it rise. Meanwhile mix all the dried fruits, candied fruits and nuts together and keep it aside. 
Take flour, sugar, butter, eggs, remaining milk and yeast in a mixing bowl and knead it into a dough for 5 to 7 minutes. I have used a kneading machine, but you can also knead it by hand. Cover and keep it aside to rise. Now add the dried fruits and nuts. Knead the dough again. Divide the dough into 2 portions. Take a portion of the dough, roll it into a thick rope and round it into a wreath on a baking sheet.  Cover and keep it for 30 minutes. Then brush the dough with the egg.
Garnish the cake with candied peels, nuts and dried fruits. Bake it in an pre heated oven for 25 minutes at 180 degree celsius. Remove it from the oven and let it cool a bit. Sprinkle with some powdered Sugar.

Putu Ayu Ketan Hitam (Black Glutinous Rice and Coconut Steamed Cake)


It's an Indonesian steamed cake recipe. It's can be served as snacks and believe me it is moist, healthy and super tasty.
I have followed Anna dina's blog for this recipe, but I have reduced the quantity of the ingredients to half and recreated the recipe as per my convenience.
The Black Rice was one of the ingredient that I had received as prize from Original Indian Table in collaboration with Commeat. I have plated it on a Tapas plate which again was one of the prizes I had received from Le Creuset...

I made the rice flour at home. I took 125 grams of rice and ground it. Then sieved it. I have used dried grated coconut, but the fresh coconut is more preferred.
Black Rice known as forbidden rice, it is less popular than the other rice varieties, it is also an ancient grain that has been eaten in Asia for thousands of year. It has a powerful disease-fighting antioxidants, and it also contains dietary fiber, anti-inflammatory properties, and has the ability to help stop the development of diabetes, cancer, heart disease and even weight gain.

For the Coconut Layer
Ingredients
50 grams grated Coconut
3 drops of Vanilla Essence
A Pinch of Salt
1 Pandan Leaf

Methods
Add the coconut, salt, vanilla essence and pandan leaf into the bowl. Mix the ingredients and steam it for 2 minutes. Let it cool. Discard the leaf and keep it aside.

For the Cake
Ingredients
120 grams of Black Glutinous Rice Flour
60 grams Caster Sugar as per the sweetness required
A Pinch of Salt
1 Large Egg
100 ml Coconut milk
1 Pandan Leaf
Oil for greasing

Method
Boil coconut milk with pandan leaf. Let it cool then remove the leaf from the coconut milk. Boil a liter of water in a pot. Grease the putu ayu moulds or mini bundt moulds with oil. Put 2 tsp of the coconut into the mould. Press the grated coconuts well until it sets. Keep the mould aside.
Remove the pot of hot water from the flame. Take another bowl which can fit onto the pot. Add the egg, sugar and salt into the bowl. Beat on low speed until the sugar dissolves. Increase the speed of the beater and  beat until the batter becomes thick and pale. Add the flour in the batter in batches. Beat it further till the flour has mixed well. Now gradually add the coconut milk little at a time and continue to beat the batter until the ingredients are well incorporated.
Fill the moulds with the batter until full till the edge, steam it for 15 minutes or till the cake is done. Let the cake cool down before remove it from the moulds.
