I took some pics today of the banana muffins which i posted the recipe for yesterday – i swear its so simple and takes maybe 30 mins from getting the ingredients out to popping them on the cooling rack! 🙂 Batter mix…Ready for the oven…Drenched in icing sugar ( honest…its not me its the baby!)… Then i made Sweet Mincemeat muffins.
It is simply adapted from the Banana recipe but where you would add 3 bananas, substitute with 2 small bananas and 3 heaped desert spoons (and i mean heaped) of sweet mince straight from the jar. Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon and some glace cherries that have been chopped. Bake for 25 mins until golden brown 🙂The top layer is lovely and chewy with a really soft spongy centre – delicious!! Finish with a sprinkling of icing sugar (at Christmas everything has to be ‘snowtopped’ doesnt it??) lol 🙂
To answer a couple of questions…The mixer i have is a Kenwood Patissier – i love it and would be lost without it now! 🙂 I know a few think im either wonderwoman or have help and i have to say no to either 🙂 I have never had help (…we havent even hired a baby sitter!) lol I love being busy and thrive on stress and deadlines so i love what i do and the more i can fit in a day then the better – i feel a lot worse in myself if i dont do my lists!! lol
And finally – I found this chocolate in Lidl yesterday and it is only 99p a bar!! 70% cocoa and is the base of the truffles i started to make today so will see how it goes 😀 For now though its back to tree trimming….why is it each year i go through the decorations and keep saying ‘ ooh i forgot we had this’ or ‘ oh do you remember when we got this’ lol Tell me im not alone!! LOL
