Muffins - from the Wikipedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia










Muffins

A muffin is a type of bread that is baked in small portions. Many forms are somewhat like small cakes or cupcakes in shape, although they usually are not as sweet as cupcakes and generally lack frosting. Savory varieties, such as cornbread muffins, also exist. They generally fit in the palm of an adult hand, and are intended to be consumed by an individual in a single sitting.

Muffin can also refer to a different baked good: the smaller, disk-shaped English muffin, although this usage is uncommon outside of the Commonwealth of Nations. As American-style muffins are also sold in Commonwealth countries, the term muffin can refer to either product, with the context usually making clear which is meant.

There are many varieties and flavors of muffins made with a specific ingredient such as blueberries, chocolate chips, cucumbers, raspberry, cinnamon, pumpkin, date nut, lemon, banana, orange, peach, strawberry, boysenberry, almond, and carrot. These ingredients are then baked into the muffin. Muffins are often eaten for breakfast; alternatively, they may be served for tea or at other meals.


Modern history

Muffins baking in an oven

A somewhat odd combination of circumstances in the 1970s and 1980s led to significant changes in what had been a rather simple, if not prosaic, food. The decline in home-baking, the health food movement, the rise of the specialty food shop, and the gourmet coffee trend all contributed to the creation of a new standard of muffin.

Preservatives in muffin mixes led to the expectation that muffins did not have to go stale within hours of baking, but the resulting muffins were not a taste improvement over homemade. On the other hand, the baked muffin, even if from a mix, seemed almost healthy compared to the fat-laden alternatives of doughnuts and Danish pastry. "Healthful" muffin recipes using whole grains and such "natural" things as yogurt and various vegetables evolved rapidly. But for "healthful" muffins to have any shelf-life without artificial preservatives, the sugar and fat content needed to be increased, to the point where the "muffins" are almost indistinguishable from cupcakes. The rising market for gourmet snacks to accompany gourmet coffees resulted in fancier concoctions in greater bulk than the original, modestly sized corn muffin.

The marketing trend toward larger portion sizes also resulted in new muffin pan types for home-baking, not only for increased size. Since the area ratio of muffin top to muffin bottom changed considerably when the traditional small round exploded into a giant mushroom, consumers became more aware of the difference between the soft texture of tops, allowed to rise unfettered, and rougher, tougher bottoms restricted by the pans. There was a brief foray into pans that could produce "all-top" muffins, i.e., extremely shallow, large-diameter cups. Along with the increasing size of muffins is a contrary trend of extremely small muffins. It is now very common to see muffin pans or premade muffins that are only one or two inches in diameter.


Types of muffins

English Muffin

A split English muffin

The English muffin is very different from the variety described on this page. The "English muffin" is yeast leavened and predates the baking powder leavened muffins. This produces a type of muffin with a thick, fluffy pastry and is usually baked as a disk typically about 8 cm in diameter. It is usually split into two, toasted and buttered, and bears a vague resemblance to a crumpet or pikelet. It also is eaten cold with a hot drink at coffee shops and diners. In her Boston Cooking-School Cook Book, Fannie Farmer gave recipes for both types of muffins, distinguishing between "raised" and adding instructions for a version that is nearly identical to today's "English muffin." Here the raised-muffin mixture was cooked in muffin rings on a griddle and flipped to brown both sides, producing a grilled muffin. Farmer indicated this was a useful method when baking in an oven was not practical.

Corn Muffin
Muffins made from cornmeal are popular in the United States. Though corn muffins can simply be muffin shaped cornbread, corn muffins tend to be sweeter. Similar to the pan variety, corn muffins can be eaten with butter or as a side dish with stews or chili.

Muffin paper cups

A blueberry muffin in a paper muffin cup.

Muffin paper cups are round sheets of paper, foil or metal,[1] with scallop-pressed edges, giving the muffin a round cup shape. Their shape can be compared to that of a disposable coffee filter. Muffin paper cups are used to line the bottoms of muffin pans, used in the baking of muffins to facilitate the easy removal of the finished pastry from the muffin tin.

The advantage to cooks is easier removal and cleanup, more precise form, and moister muffins; however, using them will prevent a crust.[2]

Chocolate Moist Cake for Hantaran

Macam pernah tengok jer kek cam ni kan? Ya betul!!! Memang pun... ada yang berkenan bila tengok kek yang dihiasi dengan coklat toppers. Customer kali ini pun mintak sebijik macam yang dia tengok sebelum ini. Kita ikut apa customer mintak cuma rupa 'heart shape choclote toppers' sedikit beza dan kita tambahkan dengan border disekelilingnya dan parutan chocolate di tengah permukaan kek.

Tools: Checkerboard Cake Pan Set

Ingredients:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
2 2/3 cups granulated sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour (cake flour)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
4 squares (4 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate, melted
Chocolate Buttercream

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray pans with vegetable pan spray. In large bowl, cream butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture alternately with milk; mix well after each addition. Continue beating 1 minute. Divide batter in half. Stir melted chocolate into half the batter; mix well.

Place Batter Dividing Ring into one prepared pan. Follow instructions in pan set for filling sections shown below (for convenient filling, place batter in disposable decorating bag) and remove ring. Follow filling instructions for 2nd and 3rd pan.

Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.

Assemble cake. Position layer with chocolate cake on outside onto serving plate; spread top with chocolate icing. Position layer with yellow cake on outside on top of 1st layer; spread top with chocolate icing. Position final layer; ice entire cake with chocolate icing.

Note: Other colored batters may be substituted for vanilla and chocolate. Pan set instructions for filling sections:
  1. Place Batter Dividing Ring in the first prepared 9 x 11/2 in. pan. Pour darker colored batter in outer and center sections and lighter colored batter in the middle section. Fill sections halfway.
  2. Remove ring from pan by carefully lifting straight up on handles. Rinse and completely dry ring.
  3. Place ring in 2nd prepared pan and repeat steps 1 and 2. These will be the top and bottom layers of your checkerboard cake.
  4. Place clean and dry ring in 3rd prepared pan. Pour lighter colored batter in outer and center sections and darker colored batter in the middle section. Fill sections halfway. This will be the middle layer of your checkerboard cake.
  5. Remove ring from pan as before. Bake and cool cakes following recipe directions. Remove and stack cakes. DO NOT PUT DIVIDING RING IN OVEN.
With this unique baking set, you'll create cakes with an exciting multicolored pattern—there's style in every slice! Baking is easy with the Batter Dividing Ring included. Just place the Dividing Ring in one of the three 9 x 2 in. pans in the set and follow instructions for adding dark and light colors of batter in the divisions. Repeat for 2 more layers, pouring the dark and light batters in opposite sections for the middle layer. Use the Dividing Ring's easy-lift handles to lift out ring before baking, then stack cakes to form the checkerboard. Enjoy two tastes in one cake—try the Golden Yellow/Chocolate recipe on the package. Great for colorful holiday cakes, too! Three pans feature oversized handles for safe lifting from the oven; each takes 5 1/2 cups batter. Non-stick steel pans; plastic Dividing Ring.

BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE

inilah hasil tangan kita yang pertama, masa mula2 berjinak-jinak dengan baking. Berbaloi betul... memang pun cheesecake mahal... bahan mentah pun mak ai... cheese sahaja pun dah modal besau. tapi kalau korang 'don't mind' nak bayar, kita terima jer kalau nak oder.... hehehehe....
*Bahan*
15 graham crackers,crushed (biskut oreo 150gm==1 paket)
2 tablespoon melted butter
2 packages 8 ounce) cream cheese (beli yg 500gm kat Bagus)
3/4 cup white sugar (castor sugar)
1/2 cup fresh milk
2 biji telur
1 cup sour cream (1 bekas plain yogurt)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract(lemon flavor)
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whipping cream
Blueberry filling

*Cara membuatnya*
  1. Panaskan oven pada suhu 160C.Lengserkan loyang 9 inci (springform).
  2. Gaulkan biskut digestive/oreo dengan mentega cair.Masukkan dlm loyang dan tekan agak padat.sejukkan dalam peti ais.
  3. Pukul cream chesse dan gula hingga smooth,masukkan susu segar.
  4. Kemudian masukkan telur satu demi satu,pukul sedikit saja.
  5. Masukkan sour cream, vanilla, whipping cream dan tepung. Gaulkan adunan hingga rata.
  6. masukkan adunan ke dalam loyang berisi biskut tadi dan bakar selama 1 jam [bakar secara steam bath]
  7. kemudian bakar lagi dgan api bwah 10 minit dengan suhu 140C.
  8. Kemudian biarkan di dalam oven selam 5 hingga 6 jam.Ini untuk mengelakkan kek tersebut merekah.
  9. Apabila kek telah sejuk sapukan dengan blueberry filling dan kalau rajin hiaslah ikut creativity masing2…
Disebabkan tak paham apa tu vanilla extract (lemon flavor), kita masukkan 2 sudu besar lemon juice. Pada kita base biskut orea lebih sedap dari digestive biskut tu. Creamcheese yang mahal tu lebih sedap kalau digunakan... hehehe...
