I apologise for being MIA lately, but I’ve had the worst virus/fever and have struggled getting out of bed this last week 🙁
…If only sick leave existed for Mums…. (and I also wouldn’t mind one of those limousine divider screens so that I could push a button and drown out the back seat noise!! )
Anyway – as a result, there hasn’t been any baking or blogging lately.. however.. before I was struck down with this virus, the girls and I made some rainbow cupcakes – a fantastic concept that is super easy to make.
Start by making your favourite vanilla cupcake recipe. I use one inspired by Peggy Porschen, which has never failed me and is also very easy to memorise:
200g unsalted butter
200g castor sugar
200g self raising flour
1 vanilla pod; and
I always forget to leave my eggs at room temperature, so the first thing I do is crack my eggs into a bowl and give them a whisk so that they have a few minutes to warm to room temperature.
Add the eggs in and beat well.
…because when she is awake and I’m baking…..
