See, I told u I am in a baking frenzy! I tried baking this Caramelized raisin cupcakes today and I don't really like it. First thing first, it uses too much utensils. I need to cook some caramel to coat my raisins with them. This is the first time I cooked caramel and I don't know the end product is a success or not as it's not sweet. I kept the flames low and the caramel hardens back after I added water! The raisins are suppose to stick together after cool but it did not. They were swimming inside the liquid.
I was also supposed to put the raisins on top of the cupcakes which doesn't look pretty after it was remove from the oven. So to prevent failure, I scooped in some Nutella spread as a filling. Dunno whether the Nutella cause the cupcakes to be wet in the middle. Sigh...
Good thing about this book is the recipe are all small portion. I only manage to baked 5 pcs of cupcakes with this amount of batter.
