My Muffcakes Bring All The Boys To The Yard


Sometimes you are given a challenge so great, so wondrous, that you can do nothing but throw all caution to the wind, grasp it by its metaphorical horns, pull it close, look it in the eye and say, “you’re mine, beeatch”. If you’d like to smack it on the arse at this point as well you have every right to, because a challenge is a challenge, a chance to show the world who’s boss of this kitchen; and today, friends, today that boss is me and four other worthy competitors.

It’s the Muffcake Challenge.


I’m Not Bluffin’ With My Muffins


After reading the ever lovely Monet’s, of Anecdotes & Apple Cores, blog post on her strawberry poppyseed muffins, I knew that exactly what I was craving were a few good muffins of the poppyseed variety.

I got thinking about a couple of good combinations and finally came up with this: orange marmalade, stem ginger and poppyseed.

Even better, I actually took photos of more than just the finished product this time! I KNOW. And they were just so pretty, too.
