The long exodus for the Hari Raya break has already started. Evidently, when the city is crystal clear, you know that the city people are somewhere else enjoying their "Cuti-Cuti Malaysia"or holidaying in the "never never" land. I too will be travelling but that will not start until next week. I love going away because its much needed to destress load stress and spent quality time with my other half.
Meanwhile I have been trying to bake. One which I hardly do because of time factor. For a start, I made these gorgeous orang-y cupcakes with carrots and raisins for the "any time is a good time" sweet treat. While you are still at this post, perhaps you would also like to find out on how to make Orange Coconut Cupcakes.
3 medium (abt 400g) carrots - remove skin and grated/shredded or chopped into fine strips.
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup canola oil
50g black raisins or dried blackcurrants
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
Add carrots, flour, baking soda and powder together.
Rub these ingredients against each other gently and keep aside.
Whisk oil and eggs together vigorously for a couple of minutes.
Mix in the carrot mixture little by little, stirring until smooth.
Line a muffin tray with paper cups.
Divide the cake mixture equally into each cup, filling until 3/4 level.
Bake on preheated oven (10mins) at 170c for about 1 hour or until the cakes are done.
Remove and let the cakes cool down.
Optional: Decorate or top the cakes with some grated carrots.
