Mad about Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Last night I finally came up with a way to use the 1/3 cup of dried cranberries that had been sitting in my pantry and on my conscience for the last couple of weeks. They weren’t going to go bad anytime soon, but there really isn’t much I can do with that odd amount of berries and I don’t fancy eating them just like that.

               Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Rather than let them go to waste, I decided to be adventurous and combine the tiny cranberries, along with generous chunks of dark chocolate in a muffin batter. In the spirit of experimentation, I even substituted sour cream with low fat natural yoghurt.

Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Muffin

The muffins were surprisingly delicious. The dark chocolate was wonderfully gooey fresh out of the oven and offset the tartness of the cranberries perfectly. This new combination is a definite keeper!

Available for Purchase: Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Muffin @ a Price of S$22 per order of 12.

Mad about Tiramisu Cake

Tiramisu Cake

I made this cake for my mum’s 60th birthday. It consisted of 3 layers of genoise sponge, 3 layers of mascarpone cream, surrounded by lady finger sponge and topped with Dutch-processed cocoa (I used Valrhona).

The sponge layers were soaked with Amaretto (almond liquer) and expresso coffee. The cake was assembled 2 days before it was served to allow the flavours to “develop”.

Available for Purchase: 10-inch Tiramisu Cake, 2 layers of sponge and 2 layers of mascarpone cream @ Price of S$58.00, Chocolate Variation with Chocolate Genoise & Chocolate Cream @ S$60.00
