Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

The Sweetylicious, sorry, i did not record down the timing, i think about 10-15mins and i did not wait till window pane, so long it look smooth..and the dough of this recipe is a bit soft and sticky..

蓝色小厨, should be ok to use fresh grated coconut but i think you need to adjust some of the ingredients..

Karen, you can check with the bakery shop that you bought the cupcake liners, they have many baking classes..
