Easy chocolate cupcake recipe

July 17, 2014

chocolate cupcake

I’m always trying out new cupcakes recipes, for vanilla and chocolate cupcakes specifically – I have made some really nice ones in the past and some that are so so. Yesterday we had the Durrants over for lunch, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out the recipe below for chocolate cupcakes, plus I woke up in the morning feeling like cupcakes – Are you surprised? No, neither am I.

I also wanted to mention that I have added a new category to the left of my blog called My Recipes, which includes all the recipes I have tried out by myself that I have found online, in books and from friends.

Cinnamon and Sugar Mini Donuts

July 9, 2014

mini-donuts-16

The other day my very pregnant face and I really felt like cinnamon and sugar donuts, so I looked on my ‘baked goods’ board on Pinterest for an easy recipe that I remember glancing over a few weeks back, which I even bought a mini muffin tin for the last time I was at the shops. This recipe has very few ingredients and the end result is reached super quickly. I literally made these in a few minutes and then literally ate like 8 of them in a few seconds.

I actually feel like them again, now that I’m typing about them. Damn sweet teeth.

twinkie-cake-2

I was just looking around the net a couple of weeks ago and I came across this Twinkie layer cake recipe. Now who on God’s green earth does not like Twinkies?

I remember being a kid and loving Twinkies so much, there was just something about the softness of them and the fakeness of the cream inside, they were just delicious. Truth be told, I haven’t had one in about 10 years, so when I saw this recipe and then read about how the lady that made it used specific things to insure it tasted just like the real thing, I had to try it.

I came across this blog run by Julie Marie Craig who lives in the little town of Benicia California. She takes such beautiful photos of the things she bakes and cooks. I was going through her posts and all they made me want to do was get up off my butt and bake like Nigella on a sugar high.

Phyllo pastry boats – what ALL boats should be made out of.

August 3, 2012

Came across these phyllo pastry boats and thought I should do the right thing and share them with you guys. Have you ever seen anything sweeter than this? And they float in a chocolate lake. I think all boats should be edible and float on actual lakes made of chocolate. I mean, man has managed to rocket themselves to another planet so surly they can make a lake out of chocolate and boats that you can eat with your face. SURLY.
