The caramelized brown sugar pineapple, and the way the pineapple juice seeps down into the cake makes the cake so luscious and I never got tired of baking it again and again!
I love using fresh fruits in my baking. I choose the fruits for the gorgeous colours first and then I will consider their fruity flavours. Therefore fruits like raspberries, blueberries, mangoes, pink dragon fruit are my all time favourites to incorporate in my baking sessions.
The cupcake itself is unique in flavour too. Instead of using the usual vanilla essence, the pandan leaves have been blended in the milk to give a natural aroma. If you cannot find fresh pandan leaves, you can use 1 teaspoon of pandan paste instead.
Blueberries sometimes burst with juice during baking and some juice may bubble over. Therefore, if you want to protect your oven from having drippings of blueberry juice, you should place a pan or a dish to catch any juice that may ooze out. Also, it is advisable to taste the blueberries first.
