Let's kill time...!!!

I heart this paperbag a lot (one of the items I got from BAKE with YEN...i 've decided to order more for allysha's party packs in July:)

Steamed Chocolate Cuppies with Chocolate Ganache Topping

A couple of weeks ago, I made a trip to Bake with Yen in Bandar Puteri Puchong, I'm sure you peeps know this shop well..especially those 'nigella or anna olson wannabe" they have one in Chow Kit, of course given a choice, Puchong is much better choice for me.. I was asked by my mother in law of course, she needs a few things for her sister (my mak ngah) but as I entered the shop...
I was like a little girl in a candy shop.. from a few items listed in a small piece of paper becomes a trolley full of baking stuffs;(

I went crazy with boxes, the cuppies stuff..even the paper bagssss....they have coloured cups for the cuppies...yeeyyyy!!! I picked Orange cups

and that happened a couple of weeks ago...the stuffs i bought still intact somewhere in my kitchen cabinet until last weeked when my husband was extremely busy meeting the dateline...I decided to bake to kill time..and also partly because i found the cuppies box I bought weeks before:)

My kids love chocolate..anything with chocolate flavor, hence I decided to make chocolate cupcakes with chocolate ganache topping...

Chocolate cake (i steamed using steamer rather than baking using oven)

Ingredients

70 g cocoa powder
80g sugar
1 cup of water

(stir this mixture with a whisk over medium heat until smooth..and leave the mixture to cool)

250g butter
280 g castor sugar (you can reduce if you dont like "too sweet" taste for the cake)
240 g Flour
2 tea spoon of soda bicarbonate (added to the flour )
2 tea spoon of essence vanilla
6-7 eggs


Methods
Beat the butter using Mixer at medium speed, until it becomes creamy, add in sugar..beat until the mixture turn to almost white, add in egg..one at a time..
add esssence vanilla..
Pour the chocolate mixture..continure beating..and lastly add in flour
mix them well until the texture smooth and velvety

Then it's ready to be baked or steamed..(I like steamed as the cake is moist)


Chocolate Ganache

500g baking chocolate
450 liters of whipping cream
100 g of butter


Methods

Chopped the chocolate , place them in a bowl and put aside
Heat cream and butter in a saucepan over a medium heat, bring just to a boil
immediately pour the boiling cream over the chocolate..
stir with a whisk until smooth and velvety

Chocolate Ganache

If you want to decorate a cupcake..let it cool and put inside the fridge for 24 hours until the mixture is hard enough to be piped

I have a slightly different case..to cater for my lil' piranhaskids......i just poured over my cuppies while it's still in liquid form as my kids cannot wait for the next 24 hours.. if I insist to wait..there might be no more cuppies to be "ganeched' the next day..muaahhhaaa..haaaa
I'm telling you..it's not easy to feed them with chocolate ganache..I've to thank my maid..it's extremely messy..they had to change clothes couple of times on that sunday..as they soiled the dress each time they take a bite at the cuppies..*sigh*

note :

if you have chocolate ganache left-over..you can use that to make truffles....make it like a small ball and rolled into cocoa powder..chilled it .. i guarantee u..memang YUMMMMM!!!

the reason i made cuppies this time.
Inspired by this pretty box...trying to find a reason to use it



the box can fit in 12 pcs of medium size cuppies


I just need a reason to use the box..even if it doesn't make sense to keep cuppies in a box while serving my own lil' piranhas kids ;)



in case you are confused with my instructions..feel free to drop a question..i guarantee you the kids love these cuppies n truffles... unlike my case..the ganache were gone even before I can rolled into cocoa powder:( *sigh*


happy baking peeps..



until then...

hi..stumbled upon yr blog from zarin's..nice place :) nak tanya sikit..for chocolate trufflres..must u keep the ganache over 24 hrd baru roll into cocoa powder? TQ

screamingmommy said...

TK : Beb..sama lah kita...i ni pun ada byk lagi items yg tak tahu bila nak guna..kekadang dah setahun expired..he..hee..:)tapi tgk rasa nak beli:)

Azmiezas : untung u kedai tu dekat..I ni jauh laa jugak n agak jam sikit nak pass by IOI mall area tu..tapi sbb tempat tu harga dia murah n byk choice i panjangkan langkah pegi jugak:)

Yat : kalau nak buat truffles, not necessarily 24 hours..tapi make sure dia dah boleh dibentuk..then it's good to roll into cocoa powder sbb kalau cair susah nak bentuk kan? happy trying:) n thnks for stopping by
