It is really amazing to get the feedback from you guys! Even if it's not as a comment, but just as a private message it's... wow, I can't tell you how great that is! Makes me smile (banana smile - you know what i mean!)
Anyways, I have loads of pictures and loads of subjects for posts I could do so I think I should use them. Now that it's decided.... I'm on a diet. Again. You know, bikini season's coming up, you gotta look good! But don't you worry. I'm not going to stop baking. N E V E R!I actually baked brownie cupcakes just 2 days ago :>
But as the "diet" subject came up I thought about my diet cupcakes (I know that's kind of an oxymoronic expression :>) and I figured I have to find more recipes for healthy stuff like that. BUT for now, I figured out I still haven't posted the recipe for them!
DIET (zucchini) CUPCAKES
from "Cook Yourself Thin " show :)
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp of seeds from vanilla bean or you can simply add a bit of vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 3/4 cup ZUCCHINI! peeled and grated! :) - that does the trick!
- you can add 1/2 cup of ground almonds if you want
- 3 egg whites
- 1 cup of sugar
- pinch of salt
- vanilla extract
- zest from 1/2 lemon
What to do?
- Start with the frosting! So in a heatproof bowl combine egg whites, sugar, salt & extract
I want to stress that YOU CAN'T MAKE OUT ZUCCHINI in them while eating! They don't taste like it at all! Try them yourself and check that out! It is just a substitute for butter and they have half of the calories they would normally have.
And that's how my cupcakes look today! I've decorated them with banana as I had it at home and thought it was pretty good idea :)
