Category: muffins and cakes in a cup


SHF. And then we cupcaked. It was totally awesome. Part un.

It’s quite crazy how those past five days went by. I arrived home. Unpacked my (thousands of) bags. Baked a little. Filled in paperwork. Visited Pascal Lac to say hello and make sure he still wanted me to work for him. Answered an interview. Put some green tea recipe together for an online magazine. And […]

SHF, so horribly fluffy – S’more cupcakes

I came across S’mores quite late in life. A Michael Recchiuti book. A tiny note at the bottom of a page.

Now it’s done. Delicious coconut extract, which also happens to make delicious vodka shots […]

Un petit papier et des muffins – Jamie Oliver’s butternut squash muffins with a frosty top

[On a small paper bit and muffins] I don’t know about you, but in my book, nothing’s worse than Monday mornings. Wait. There is: autumn Monday mornings. I mean, how would you expect me to be happy on a cold rainy morning, while we all know how I spent my weekend. It’s crazy how hard […]
