Rested for a while without baking much as kept on feeling very lethargic and falling sick on and off for the past weeks. Finally decided to go to the doc to get antibiotics since I wasn't recovering well in my own. So restless that I didn't even baked the usual supply of bread for daily breakfast and only surviving enough to managed at least 2 meals a day.
So since I am feeling way better now, the antibiotics does help a bit, and left with my sinus to tackle, I am back to my baking craze. Tis time, cheddar cheese cupcakes.
Kinda worried it will be too overwhelming so I added cocoa powder and a tsp of chocolate essence to complement the cheddar. Indeed it was yummy. Taste like chocolate jap cheesecake to me. And will definetely make them again. My kids love it so so much...
