And then use low speed to remove some large bubbles. This step is the key of success and may take 12- 15 minutes until the mixture reach the ribbon stage.
  3. Shift flour in. Then use a spatula to combine well. And lastly add oil and well combined too.
  4. Prepare a mini 12 paper lined muffin tin mold and pour the batter in.
