Pineapple Cupcakes

It was my first time to bake these cupcakes last New Year's eve and it turned out okay. It was good but I'm not completely satisfied. Next time I will make these, I will have to cut down the sugar so it will not be that sweet. Also, I think my baking powder is already old because the cupcakes did not rise that much. Oh well, I will make it better next time. My hubby love these though because he likes sweet stuffs. Here's the recipe:

2 1/4 c flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c butter
1 1/3 c sugar
1 c milk (or 1/2 c milk and 1/2 c pineapple juice)
3 eggs, separated
2/3 c crushed pineapple, drained

Mix together butter, sugar and egg yolks then remaining ingredients. Folding egg whites last. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until done. Cupcakes will be moist.

Happy 2013

A late happy New Year to everybody! It's been a week past since the first day of this month but I still have a hang over, lol! Our Christmas tree is still up but hubby said he will put it down and keep it in the box tomorrow. So what did we have for New Year? Well, not that much. I even thought that it was still 30th of December last Monday. So when my brother asked me that afternoon what will I cook for tonight, I said nothing because it's not yet New Year's eve. He said it is 31st of December already and tonight is New Year's eve. Oh my word! Forgetful me! It's good I have the ingredients for goulash and agar-agar fruit salad and pineapple muffins. So I had to prepare right away that afternoon. I did the muffins first then the salad followed by the goulash. My brother cooked pork barbecue, grilled hotdogs and then he did the fried chicken wings. We both finished cooking at around 11 PM. My youngest brother brought halayang ube that he himself made and my SIL bought some suman. We had some fruits that we put on the table.

When the clock hit 12 MN, I woke up my hubby and asked him to join me and my 2 brothers, SIL and Vernice in welcoming the New Year. We all went outside and watch our neighbors lighting firecrackers and some fireworks which we call losis in our dialect. We didn't have any of those this year. I forgot? No. We're just being frugal this time. New Year will still pass even without those. I did have my camera though and captured the moment with my loved ones. Then we all went inside, took pics, hubby said the blessing and ate the foods that we prepared on the table. We all thank God for all the blessings He bestowed on us the previous year and the years to come.
