Calamansi Cupcake





I’ve watched Julia and Julie movie last holy week and it inspires me to enhance my cooking and baking skills so we bought cook book but it did not happen. I don’t feel like cooking and baking because of the oven-like heat we have this season. I’m so lazy especially now that I feel so burn out but my son was so demanding yesterday. He never stop saying “mommy, cake please”. I called my husband and told him to buy cake or mamon but still I bake cupcake.

I always bake banana bread or banana cupcake so for a change I bake calamansi cupcake. I got the recipe here. It was my first time and I was happy with the result, it’s soft, moist and not sweet. But I was little bit sad because hubby and son did not like it. My son was so excited to taste the cupcake but after one bite, he quickly went to our trash bin and pukes the cupcake. Imagine, I spent an hour to bake this cupcake and this will be his reaction. Maybe, he doesn’t like the calamansi taste. I asked my hubby for his verdict.

Me: anong lasa?
Hubby: lasang sauce na niluluto mo para sa salmon
Me: Hollandaise sauce!?! Don’t tell me, mas gusto niyo pa rin yung banana cake.
Hubby: oo

Over sa reaction ang aking mag-ama but honestly, I like this cupcake, I’m pretty sure they will not include this in yummy magazine if this is not yummy. I told them, I will bake more calamansi cupcake, lemon cupcake and lime cake. (basta may maasim na taste) #pang-asar.


i was able to bake 24 pcs of calamansi cupcake

  3. we liked it here in the office, my first bite was... "weird ng taste", di sya sour as I expected it, it's a cake, and the icing? or the moist part are in my fingers and I kept licking it... meron syang after taste but still not sour as calamansi. It was actually good.. don't feel bad... your hubby and ethan are both so spoiled sayo. :P

  8. I love that movie, and isa yun sa gusto kong gawin ang mamili ng recipe book at gayahin lahat ng recipe dun and to blog about it.
    Try doing lemon drizzle cake, para sharp but sweet - para win-win kayo sa bahay!
    Well done sis, ganun talaga when you bake, some people would love it and other would say it's not their cup of tea...
    Basta bake ka pa rin! =)
