Roti Konde ala Helwah

My friend,Helwah Balfas, taught us how to make roti konde at her house two days a go. Thank you very much Helwah for sharing the recipe. Served with lamb curry or honey, jam or whatever you like. My kids prefer to eat roti konde with yoghurt, sliced onion and cherry tomatos than curry. You can see step by step to make Roti Konde Here

My blog 1 Year Old & Chocolate Cupcakes

Today, my blog is one year old. Still a baby, isn´t it?. Until now, I´ve been collected more than one hundred recipes, not bad. Here is my first posting. So, I would like to thank you: all my friends who leave me comments, support, share recipes, stopping by my site. Inspired by Hany von Gillern, I made cupcakes decorated with marzipan mini roses. Actually, I´m not a big fan of marzipan, but I couldn´t found fondant in nearby supermarkets.

Marzipan is a confection consisting primarily of sugar and ground almond (source: Wikipedia)

akes 21 cupcakes
4 eggs
1 tsp emulsifier TBM
75 g castor sugar

100 g all purpose flour
15 g (3 teaspoons) chocolate powder
1 tablespoon maizena/corn flour

directions: put eggs, sugar and emulsifier into a bowl of electric mixer, beat on high speed until mixture is thick and creamy. Sift dry ingredients so that all ingredients are thoroughly combined, with spatula or with a low speed mixer. Pour mixture into muffins baking pan. Bake for about 20 minutes at 180°C.
