Eggless Orange Cupcakes

Too busy but want to cook up something simple and nice? Try this.

Pan fry herbal fillets

I'm in the midst of exam fever (not mine, but ds's). I've lost all mood to cook elaborate stuff. Everything has to be kept as simple as possible. So I cook these for lunch today. These are really simple yet delicious. So simple that there isn't even a recipe to talk about. Just get some dory fillets from supermarket. Season both sides with a little garlic salt and mixed herbs and pan fry them till a little brown. Before serving, squeeze juice from a wedge of lemon over the fillets. Can't be simpler, right?

Stress has got this wonderful powder to dampen your mood or the other way round. I've got this dying urge to bake something, just anything. I know I won't have time to do the long winded bread, so I decided on cake. Then I realised I've run out of eggs! Oh my! Did some search and found this in KC.

Eggless Orange Cupcake

The original recipe was a buttercake. I just change it to cuppies and added a little orange zest to them. This was the first time I baked and ate eggless cake, so I wasn't too sure what to expect. But they were not bad, not bad at all! Soft and moist and not too sweet. I think the next round I'll add some lemon juice to them to have a little more tangy sensation!

2. Cream sugar and butter till light and fluffy.
