Bake Nominate!

Most people by now are over the whole "neck nominate" saga. Far better is the concept of Bake Nominations! Wee Megan from Vent nominated me and a few other bloggers in a post recently and I happily obliged. Like I needed an excuse to bake...


I made these great peanut butter cupcakes - the recipe is really simple, and most of the ingredients were somewhere in my store cupboard already. 


I was so pleased with how evenly they turned out! This never happens to me. I'm more accustomed to burnt bits and random lumps. The best part of these cupcakes is the cream cheese icing but it wasn't until I'd combined the ingredients that I remembered I'd need an electric whisk to mix it properly. Hence, the icing looks a bit more "glace" than in the recipe book! But I've just been eating the left over icing with a spoon today, it tastes so good.


Fancy a few nominations? Ack go on girls...

  2. I love recipes that don't call for a lot of extra fancy ingredients that you only ever need once. Those cupcakes look tasty!
