Gluten-free Blueberries & White Chocolate Muffins

I love eating the blues, and loving every minute of it! After leaving Australia, I miss all my fresh blueberries over there, even the frozen one taste so good before or after baked. Back to KL, it's indeed difficult to find even frozen blueberries, as well as more pricey than I used to buy before. I've no choice but still buy it  Even as I can't find a more versatile berry that lends itself beautifully to all sorts of dishes, be they snacks, mains, desserts, mix in ice cream or just grabbing a handful plain and enjoying while reading my cook book.

In regards on the perfect combination of taste, I decided to add on a little bit of sweetness into this blueberries muffin. Just add on one white button chocolate at the middle of the muffin center prior baking. Once baked, it will be a little bit gooey inside.

Due to gluten-free flour, you may see this muffin not as fluffy as the normal muffin. I've substitute the butter with canola oil in order to have healthier breakfast each day. :)

Vegemite Fruity Macarons

Vegemite in macarons? In doubts that you ever taste before or in other words you do not even know there is vegemite inside macarons. The taste is so unique, salty and sweet with macarons shell, the combination definitely give you a blast. I've done the several eating tasting with few of my friends in Australia last 2 weeks ago, nobody can guess the ganache actually contains of vegemite. The idea came from the toast with vegemite, since I came to Australia, that's was my first time in my life knowing that Australian likes to eat vegemite in toast. Unlike Asian, we normally eat this vegemite or rather Bovril with plain porridge. 

Followed from my previous post - Dressing Up Macarons, I discovered that a need to add on some saltiness into macarons. With the combination of raspberries's sourness, sweetness of macarons shell, the vegemite makes such a wonderful job to blend them together. Believe it or not, the vegemite taste is fully covered, it taste more to saltiness of caramel sometimes. 

Sprinkle some poppy seeds on top of macarons, make the tasting more enjoyable.

If you opt for more natural fruity sweetness, you may substitute raspberries to blueberries or combine both together.

Orange Swiss Roll

Creativeness is always Hankerie's trademark. Followed up from my previous post - watermelon swiss roll, I've gotten an overwhelm comments and feedback. Today I've made swiss roll again with the slightly reduced sugar recipe with same technique, rolled them into orange look recipe but taste like vanilla swiss roll. Your taste bud is greatly confused by both looks and taste together.

About the whipped cream, in order to obtain the extra smoothness, I've filtered out the raspberries seed and mix the crush seedless raspberries into cream.

By using melted white chocolate, detail out the orange look swiss roll.

I guess for my next creative swiss roll idea, some other taste will be mixed into these swiss roll look or perhaps make it into the same taste as its look.

This two tone colour swiss roll make them look like orange flesh for the first step.

Sugar-reduced Berries Yogurt Cupcake

Followed up from my gluten-free bakes series, here comes the healthy series - sugar reduced. These berries yogurt cupcakes are my enhanced version of my previous post - Fresh Australian Mango Cupcakes. The only two differences are substitution of the mango into strawberry puree and reduced at least 30% of sugar. I omitted the 1TBSP sugar for the toppings as the natural strawberry yogurt yields natural sweetness from the strawberry fruits itself. 

Oh, yum!! Berries always match perfectly with cakes. A sensational of sweetness with eggy smell of cakes. With a cup of hot brew coffee, that is my wonderful daily breakfast. Have a bite and enjoy.

Various type of berries as cupcakes topping

Black berries and raspberries are more sourish fruits than the rest of berries. If you're not a sweet person, you may have these wonderful treats. If you opt for sweeter taste, blueberries and strawberries will be the better option.

This wonderfully frozen berries came handy when out of the fruit season. Use whatever is in season if you can, or whatever you happen to have in the freezer.
