Check it out!



Ohhh yes! This time of the year is awesome not only because you get to wear those cute coats and sweaters, but it's also the PUMPKIN SEASON.
Okay, point taken, you can't wear pumpkins, but they're delicious. And healthy. And you have to eat SOMETHING.
So what I think you should try is....



(makes about 18 muffins)
  • 1,5 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (I love cinnamon so I put a bit more!)
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger 
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 113g (1/2c) butter
  • 1c white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • a few drops of vanilla extract
  • 3/4c pumpkin puree (as it's not really available in Poland, or at least I've never seen it around here, I                              make one myself, if you want to know how I make the pumpkin puree let me know)

What to do?

    1. Preheat oven to 175C and line muffin tins with paper muffin cases.
    2. In a small bowl sift together the flour, soda, spices and salt
    3. In a big bowl beat butter with sugar. When nice and fluffy start adding the eggs, one at a time, and beat that well together. Add vanilla extract.
    4. Incorporate half of the dry ingredients and half of the pumpkin puree to the big bowl (butter, sugar, eggs mixture).
    5. Add the remaining halves of dry ingredients and pumpkin puree.
    6. Pour the batter into muffin cases and bake for 15-20 minutes.

    Yummm! They're soo good! This time I decorated them with little panda heads made from fondant and for halloween as little spiders and with worms going through them! Ugh! Nasty! 
    Take a look!

    Oh, by the way, just wanted to share my enthusiasm, they opened a store with everything you need for baking close to my house! I could not be more happy! I mean, there was one I'd buy everything in but it was soo far away! So now, no worries! :) Ahhh!



    The Great (Britain) Adventure!

    Soo I was gone for a long time. I know. 
    But there's been a lot of crazy stuff going on! Crazy in a very good way though!

    One of the things was me going to live in London for 2 months. Fun? YES!
    And I thought I'd share some pictures from my trip with you. 

    They're all obviously CUPCAKE/BAKING/FOOD related! And oh my goodness, you can find cupcakes EVERYWHERE there. And every freaking store has a well stocked baking section! You can buy pretty much everything you'd need! 
    Okay, but let's go ahead and look at the pictures!

    That's the view from my balcony. It was TRULY AMAZING. The view and the cupcake make this picture I think my favorite picture of the whole trip.

    Did you ever try them? YUM. I definitely recommend these little guys! And obviously they're the best warm!

    Cupcakes I made for my brother's birthday over there :) Chocolate with lemon frosting!

    Standard and soo british.Tea and digestive cookies. Ahhh my favorite ones! 

    Ohh and the Reese's - chocolate cups that are filled with PEANUT BUTTER! <3 p="">

     Window shopping? More like window eating!

    CUTE british cupcakes baking? ;)
    Ben & Jerry's ice cream machine? HOW AWESOME IS THAT?

    Adorable little cupcake store

    And even in stupid Tesco or Sainsbury's you can find a variety of these little things!

    That's all, you guys, of my baking-related GB pictures!
    I hope you liked this post! :)
    So I'll end it with Mr. Ben. Big Ben.

    I love you, London.
