Blueberry Streusel Muffins

I love Blueberry Muffins, or actually almost any muffin, and blueberries are abundant right now so I thought I would make some.  I already have a recipe on the blog and a video on youtube for blueberry muffins, so for these one I have decided to add a streusel topping, to give a little bit […]

Buttermilk Stawberry Muffins

Most people enjoy a nice muffin.  I do, though as an afternoon snack, with a cup of tea, rather than for breakfast as many people do.  But whenever you eat them a nice fruit filled one will taste so good.  Using buttermilk in the muffins does help to make a lovely soft-textured treat.   For this […]

Coconut & Chocolate Muffins

Who doesn’t love chocolate muffins, often with chocolate chips too.  I certainly do enjoy them.  So today I decided I would make some, but with the addition of some coconut flour and using coconut milk instead of buttermilk to give a different flavour. As always with muffins these are very easy to make and take […]

Malted Caramel Chocolate Chip Muffins

I wanted to make some muffins today and although I had milk, dark and white chocolate chips I decided I would make mine with the lovely caramel chocolate chips that I recently bought.  Those are simply delicious and I thought they would work so well in a muffin. To add some additional flavour too I […]

Speculaas Doughnut Muffins

For a nice alternative to fried doughnuts a doughnut muffin is a good way to do.  Often just spiced in the batter and on the top, with sugar, rather than being filled with jam, they can be very tasty indeed. Almost any spice combination can be used and for mine I decided to make use […]

Apple Butter & Sultana Muffins

Having made a large batch of apple butter, for a savoury pork dish I was making, I had a lot left over.  So I decided to use some of the apple butter to make some muffins( I may also make an apple tart to use up even more), and to add some sultanas for a […]

Spiced Cupcakes For Christmas

Having made my speculaas last week I was so enamoured of the flavour of the spices that I wanted to make something else with them too.  I decided to make some cupcakes and was all set to go when I discovered a recipe on Bakingmad for ginger and cinnamon cupcakes.  Although I wanted to use the […]

Raspberry Muffins

I had some frozen raspberries in the freezer so I decided that today I would use them to make some muffins.  I found a very nice recipe on aburstfullofbeautiful which seemed to be exactly what I wanted. Muffins, as you know, are very easy to make and require very little mixing.  In fact you should only […]

Vanilla Mantecadas

Yesterday I discovered Mantecadas, having never heard of them before.  I saw some photos on Pinterest and that piqued my interest.  So I started to look for some recipes and read up a little on the origin.  Mantencadas seem to come in various forms and are from Spain.  The ones I saw were a Mexican […]

Light Almond Cupcakes

Today’s recipe is for a cupcake.  This one has a lovely almond flavour and is very light.  I decided not to put buttercream or frosting on the top, as people can decide for themselves if they want that.  For me the light little cake is good enough as on its’ own. To make them lighter […]
