4) Add the eggs to the butter/sugar mixture very slowly while still mixing with electric mixer. This is to prevent the mixture from curdling.

5) Pour in the coconut milk/scotch bonnet mixture

6) Add flour to the mixture by folding it in with a big spoon. Do not over mix the batter. Add in 2 more tablespoons of coconut milk

7) Grease a baking pan and layer with baking sheet and for cupcakes put cupcake cases in cupcake tin. Pour batter into lined baking pan and bake in pre heated oven for 30 minutes or till cake is done.

K‘s Cuisine tip: To check if cake is done, dip a toothpick or skewer in the middle of the cake, if it comes out clean then the cake is ready. If it comes out wet then leave to bake some more.

When the cake is done, take it out of the oven and let it cool for about 20 minutes.

IMG_8375 See how fluffy the cake is? The coconut milk did good.

You can top with scotch bonnet fresh cream or buttercream like I did below (Recipe coming soon).

The Little Essex Cookout

Exactly one month ago on the 5th of July 2014, a group of ladies gathered at Cowdray hall in Grays Essex for a cookout tagged ‘The little Essex Cookout’.

The Cookout was aimed at socialising, networking, all things food, merrying and raising money for charity. It was put together by some lovely ladies namely: Funmi Adegoke, Olukemi Amusa of K’s Cuisine , Hariat Tumi Orimole, Omotunde Bola Adewusi, Lola Sotonwa, Abolly Abolanle, Bunmi of Cooking Enthusiast and Olubunmi Fajinmi-Alewi.

It was a fun filled day with lots of food, drinks, music, gifts and prizes. We had over 40 attendees (we had cut off at 50 as we didn’t want too many people as a first) and our sponsors who gave us gifts, their services among other things included Kemi Kings, Rayo Abe of Panari, Bantuway, Dj Remiz, Bola Adeduro, Olayemi Oyewo of Hcube events.

Not only did attendees have fun eating and socializing, we raised about £736 for our chosen charity which was the Sickle cell society.

Take it from me Essex ladies can cook! we are generous and we rock! I am proud to be able to represent and contribute positively to the Essex community where I reside. You know as the saying goes..Charity begins at home’ 😊

Below are some of the pictures taken at the event. Enjoy.

Name tags for attendees in gold and black. Simple and lovely.
