Trial for oat cake!

(Only modification to the recipe: used 1/2 cup of wheat flour and 1/2 cup of oat flour to achieve a structure for the cake :->)

Am thinking of pairing it with a vanilla tofu frosting together with mango cubes.. Since the boy loves mangoes. BUT IS IT MANGO SEASON NOW? Oh no.

Perfect recipe!

The healthiest recipe ever:
Low sugar (only 1/4 cup)
Used with light virgin olive oil

Airy, with a soft crumb.

If I manage to come up with a fruit frosting.. This is it. It's my new creation. 

*All ingredients must be at room temperature*
Dry ingredients:
1 cup of oat flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 cup of white sugar

Wet ingredients:
1/2 cup of low fat milk 
1/2 tablespoon of vinegar (I used white vinegar)
1/4 cup of light extra virgin olive oil

Method of preparation

1. Sift all of the dry ingredients together (except sugar) in a bowl.
2. Combine the sugar into the bowl of dry ingredients
3. In a separate bowl, mix the low fat milk together with the vinegar, leave it to stand for around a minute.
4. Pour the olive oil into the bowl of wet ingredients.
5. Make a well in the center of the bowl (which contains the dry ingredients), and pour the wet mixture in!
Remember not to over mix, just stir till traces of flour are no longer visible! 
6. Bake them at 150 degrees c for 15 minutes (temperature depends on your oven, I preheated mine at 240 deg c before using it! I would recommend 150-180 deg c for no more than 20 minutes as a rough gauge!) 

P.s: this recipe doesn't give the cupcake much structure, would be fine if you used this recipe for bakes in a jar, else I would suggest beating an egg in (haven't tried it though)! OR simply use 1/2 cup of all purpose flour and 1/2 cup of oat flour instead of 1 cup of oat flour! :-)

Delayed post

13th of June.

My virgin cake for a friend's birthday! 

Despite looking like carrot cake, it's just a vanilla cake with mango buttercream. 

Gotta work on my frosting skills though. 

There's just something magical about fluffy baked goods.

Fancy a fluffy cupcake?

If you'd prefer your cupcakes or cakes fluffy, airy and light as compared to moist, dense and heavy... This is it. 

The part of this recipe that makes me happy? 

Only 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter, and no yolks at all! 

I'd reckon pairing this delicate baby with a summery frosting. Thinking of strawberry or mango buttercream frosting. Something that isn't too sweet.

The first hello from us!

We're on Instagram friends!                                        
@thebakinglion's virgin meet with everyone!
Homebaked with happiness:
Butter Biscuits
(Grandma's good old butter biscuits, c'mon who doesn't love grandma's recipes?)
Signature Brownies
(not too dry, not too moist, just a fine line in between with an extra savoury chocolatey taste!)
Just thought you should know!
Butter biscuits must contain a hell lot of butter, ugh!
Half of the amount of butter required for an extra yummy buttery taste (butter goodie lovers out there, you'll be glad to hear this!) has been replaced with light olive oil. (some good fats in a butter cookie, hooray!)

NOTE: Not saying these will not make you fat, but we believe in indulging, with moderation! C: Do still remember to hit the gym regularly!
