Hi everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful time and enjoying the holiday season!
I have been trying out so many Christmas recipes and this is one of them.
It was so fun to make it and was incredibly easy too. I went with pistachio as a flavour because the naturally green colour represents the colour of Christmas.
Moving on with the recipe,
1/2 cup curd/yogurt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup coarsely powdered pistachio
1-2 tbsp milk if required
First, add curd, sugar and whisk extremely well. Add the baking powder and soda and combine until no lumps are seen.
It should become frothy and this will help to rise the cupcakes better.
Add the oil and vanilla and mix slowly as if done quick then all the air incorporated before will be knocked out.
Next, sieve the flour and add the pistachio. I have just run them in my food processer. Make sure you don’t use the ones that are salted or roasted.
Mix the batter well and check the consistency. It should be a little thick but still falling off the spatula in batches. Add milk if needed.
Add liners to the muffin tray and preheat the oven at 170 degree celsius. Fill the liners until 3/4th of it and bake at 170 degrees for 17-19 minutes.
I have decorated them with some whipped cream and sprinkles, you can serve them with anything you like! (make sure you cool them completely first before frosting)
You could also serve them plain with a dip of chocolate too.
I also wanted to share with you guys about my first Christmas order! I made milk chocolate truffles along with chocolate and nuts teacake and cinnamon teacake!
Question of the day!
How do you celebrate Christmas?
