TCS Bakers: April ~ Coconut Layer Cake (Cupcakes!)

Its supposed to be a layer cake but I opted
for cupcakes cos its much easier to distribute than cut slices!
 I also did not use the suggested buttercream frosting 
cos buttercream frostings never did like me
I used cream cheese frosting from the same book!
and I used the coconut flakes as per
package on the extreme Left available from Ampang Grocers

this is our 6th recipe from

FFwD: Baby Bok Choy, Sugar Snaps and Garlic en Papillote

Into a bowl, toss together:
halved sweet peas, baby bok choy, 
whites of spring onions, thinly sliced garlic 
and sprig of mint (from my garden!)
lemon zest (originally orange)
a splash of olive oil
salt and pepper
assembled on parchment paper
loosely crimp the edges together,
into my HappyCallPan
cook for only 5 mins
sealing all the goodness in the package
I had wanted something more elegant to go
(salmon perhaps)
with this simple vegetable package
but opted for fried eggs on toast
with a splash of Lingham hot sauce
before rushing out to fetch mother!

FFwD: Quiche Maraichère

Since I was getting my hands buttered, made two portions of the sweet tart recipe!

(one frozen for a sweet treat later!)
simple enough ingredients
yellow capsicum (instead of red), carrots and celery
all diced small
cooked to tender in a dollop of butter
custard was 1.5 eggs with cream, salt and pepper
(and the amount was perfect, not a drop less or more!)
but then again I did use an 8" not 9" tart pan.... ;)
cheddar on top ie after baking for 20mins
after another 10mins - gold!
with an all home grown green salad
(tossed into mixture of olive oil and balsamic vinegar)
arugula, sweet basil and mint leaves
but the cherry tomatoes are store bought
my tomato plant is still a toddler at the moment!
If I remember correctly, this is my first quiche?
tart shells I made a couple times before,
so pleased with myself on this recipe
its Super Delish!
