Real Dinner

I seem to have been slacking on the dinner front lately.

A girl can only eat so many salad beasts and scraps from the fridge until she eats a real dinner.

Omelette with goats cheese, Portuguese rice and wilted spinach

This needs to happen more often.

After dinner more baking for the bake sale ensued

If these don’t make you squeal with glee at their cute-ness look down and make sure no one ripped out your heart.

Mini Doughnut Muffins

  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 c. milk (I used almond)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Sugary Topping

  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
Directions:
For the muffins, combine melted butter, sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Stir the milk in until combined, then mix in the flour and baking powder. Fill muffin cups half way and bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
For the topping, keep melted butter in a small bowl and combine sugar and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Dip the tops of the muffins into the melted butter and then into the sugar mixture. Leave to set.

Mini Mocha Cupcakes
  • 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp. instant coffee granules
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. butter, melted
  • 1/2 c. milk (I used almond)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Chocolate Ganache:
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp. agave nectar
Directions:
For the muffins, combine melted butter, sugar and vanilla. Stir the milk in until combined. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and coffee granules. Add dry ingredients into the wet and stir until just combined. Fill muffin cups half way and bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely before adding ganache.
For the ganache topping, mix melted coconut oil, cocoa powder and agave. Dip the tops of each cupcake into the ganache and allow to cool completely.
