Hi Hugbear

Hugbear said...

You can try substituting 30 gm of flour with cocoa powder.

Lee Lee, can I substitute the chocolate chips to fresh blueberry? Any modifications to the recipe due to the substitution of blueberry? Thanks & regards.

Hugbear said...

Sophia, just substitute with blueberry. There is no need to adjust anything else. But if you are using dry blueberry, do soak them in water or liquor for abt an hour to soften it.

I tried baking this today. But I dun no what went wrong. It does does not turn out fluffy and soft enough. Like those sold in the confectionary. Could you advise me on this? Should I use self raising flour instead or could it be double acting baking agent I used.
