I’m Back

Hello Bloggers,

Have been a bit slack with posting any entries for months now! I have moved house and have had no kitchen since I moved in so don’t have much to blog about at the moment..

Have been continuing with my gardening & attempting to grow new things in Northern Cyprus. So once the kitchen is in I can start testing out some of my new ingredients!

Other people seem to be interested in gardening in Northern Cyprus, there have been a few threads started on www.cyprus44.com so I think I will continue to update my blog with my herb, spice, fruit, vegetable growing until I can start posting some new recipes!

Also have a few recipes from last year to add on such as Stuffed Vine Leaves so will get the photos uploaded and do some catching up

Banana & Chocolate Cupcakes

HUGE Cupcake

It was a friend of ours Birthday yesterday and as Northern Cyprus tends to be short of gift shops (or any nice ladies shops) I opted to make some cakes for her present using my The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook.

I had 4 very brown Bananas on the kitchen side (why do we buy them when no one eats them, I do wonder!) so I chose Banana & Chocolate Cupcakes as these would look prettier than a slice of Banana Loaf!

The Recipe!

Silver Dragees

NB

  • The recipe says it makes 12 Large Cupcakes (American Size, Muffin Case) or 18 Small Cupcakes- I made 16 Small & 1 Large out of my mix
  • The Frosting recipe is very generous I had quite a bit left over
  • Once I realised my Frosting was too warm (it IS Cyprus) I put it in the fridge & then it was so much easier to use with a palette knife!
  • I will be posting some of my own Cupcake recipes shortly
  • Its a really good book!
