COOKING WITH NEWBIES: How To Make Easy Cupcakes
This newbie discovers that baking isn't as scary and intimidating as some may think.
If you've seen other¬†episodes of Cooking With Newbies, you now know how easy it is for someone new to cooking to make rainbow puto, bistek Tagalog, and even an¬†easy fried rice recipe every morning. However, cooking isn't the only kitchen task that can be done in the kitchen. You can also bake!¬†
However, are you one of those people who are too intimidated¬†to attempt to¬†bake or¬†are even scared to bake?¬†Then this is the episode you need to watch! While we agree that it's a science, there's nothing to fear from baking, especially when you have an expert to help you through every step of the way.¬†
That's how we helped our newbie¬†on the¬†latest episode of Cooking With Newbies.¬†
This week, we welcomed baking newbie, photographer, blogger, and videographer Mark Tan¬†of¬†eatsplorations.com¬†to the Yummy.ph kitchen.¬†Just like all the other newbies on the show, he had some expert help through every step of the way¬†from writer, recipe developer, and former Yummy magazine editor Idge Mendiola.¬†
He said he can't bake (-3 on a scale of 1 to 10!), but¬†it didn't take long for Mark to realize it's easy enough to significantly level up his skills.
Mark's first baking project is a recipe that any baker can do because it's easy, tasty, and cheesy. Cheese cupcakes¬†are¬†Pinoy cupcakes that don't need any¬†frosting at all to make it delicious and appetizing. It's a panderia staple¬†that, according to Idge, even kids¬†younger than 10 years old can make.¬†
He learned that not only are cupcakes easy to make,¬†he also didn't¬†need any special equipment, like an electric mixer, to do it. It can all be done by hand, and¬†this is something that any new baker, including Mark, can relate to because not everyone will already have the necessary baking tools¬†when attempting their very first baking project.¬†
Are you at least 10 years old? If you answered "Yes", then that¬†means you, too, can make this easy cupcake recipe!¬†
