Happy Saturday my friends! How was your week? I was in a little bit of baking heaven this week as I made a wedding cake and 70 cupcakes for a dear friend whose son is getting married today. I enjoyed getting into the groove of juggling a bench full of black forest cupcakes while giving spelling tests and listening to poetry recital from the girls. Talk about multitasking! Miss Daisy chopped chocolate for my ganache, Miss Charlotte made lemon curd and I showed Miss Mary how to make caramel. We are all in this together.
Hello long lost blogging friends! It has been an age since I have posted a recipe and I am very excited about sharing this delicious muffin recipe with you all. We tend to have quite a number of visitors through our home on a regular basis and I always bake fresh muffins for our guests, ensuring that they are hot out of the oven as our visitors arrive. This has been my habit for nearly twenty years of home hospitality. Muffins are super quick and easy, and appeal to those who prefer something a little less sweet than a cupcake. I have no hesitation in serving sweet muffins for an early morning tea, or tweaking my recipe to make savoury ones for a late breakfast or brunch. I have been baking muffins long before I fell under the grip of decorative cupcakes! This recipe can be adapted to suit any flavour. I created this strawberry and white chocolate combo purely because strawberries are so cheap at the moment. I whipped them up a few weeks ago and got such positive feedback that I have fed them to all of my guests in the last month…all of whom have loved them.
I hope you do too. x
