Thankfully, I'm not a bakeaholic. These cupcakes can be deemed an "epic fail", which I just laughed off. And since this blog is the scrapbook of our baking adventures, it is only realistic that we record all the failed attempts in reaching "baking perfection". And we can only learn if we make mistakes right?
Right. Those were consolation words from my dad, who earlier on had said my cupcakes were inedible. My brother said it tasted like crumpets, which he hates. But my mum was the most forgiving out of my family, saying it reminded her of gai dan koh. Which I'm guessing is some Malaysian dessert. If only I actually knew what it was to actually treat it as a compliment!
Isn't it ironic how I remembered to use cupcake liners for this and not for our other successful cupcakes?No amount of peanut butter could salvage this. Neither could Marmite or any other spread in my pantry.
The few ingredients and easy steps for this sponge cake recipe fooled me. Nothing's as simple as it seems!
