Recipe Post N0.9- Happy Mother's Day!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ’–

First of, Happy Mother's Day!

Today's post in accolade of mothers, like-mothers, stepmothers, daughters, sisters, friends,cousins,aunties,grannies ANYONE who's takes the place of others but whose place cannot be taken (Anne, Sibohan and Jack). And yes, I understand, one day every year doesn't exactly define the aggregate of motherly care and compassion shown. However, since there IS a day in the calendar, specifically dedicated to all mothers(and motherly figures), I feel that gives me an excuse to bake something amazing! SO without further ado, I hope you enjoy and manage to make this recipe for someone who means the most to you.

In order to whip up this quick and easy cake, you'll require:

200g of glace cheeries

225g of self-raising flour

175g of softened butter

175g of caster sugar

1 lemon, finely grated zest, required

50g of ground almonds

3 large free-range eggs.

To decorate:

175g of icing sugar

1 lemon,juice only

15g of flaked almonds, preferably toasted

5 glace cherries, quartered.

Baking in the making:

First and foremost, pre-heat the oven to 180℃/350F/Gas Mark 4. Grease a 23cm bundt tin or and regular cake tin with butter.

Cut the cherries into quarters, setting aside five of the quartered cherries for decoration later. Put the rest of the quartered cherries into a sieve, rising under running water. Drain well, drying thoroughly on kitchen paper and tossing into two tablespoons of flour.

Beat all the remaining ingredients into a large bowl and beat well for two minutes, in order to mix thoroughly. Lightly fold in the cherries. Turn this into your prepared tin.

Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes until well risen, golden brown and skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out and cooling onto a wire rack.

For the icing, mix the icing sugar together with the lemon juice to a thick paste. Drizzle over the cooled cake using the back of a spoon, sprinkle over toasted almonds and reserved cherries and voila!

Baking Post N0.8- INTRODUCING...POLLS!!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š✌๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜…

Hola, mis amigos!

This week post stems from an idea I've  pondered about for a forever and a day. Nevertheless, I believe it's been long enough and it's about time to promulgate such affairs. To me, 2018 is apropos to elevation and evolving from previous ways and getting out there, doing things with thought of course, but  conquering my ambitions for this blog. So without ado, I introduce to you, BakingBoutique polls!!

The idea behind initiating polls is acquiring further input from you, making a democratic decision(just like those live polls on TV). Besides, I've always wanted to hold my own poll.

Primarily, I'll be holding a series of polls, presumably 1-2 times every two weeks perhaps,or particularly when I'm feeling particularly uninspired or indecisiveness on what to post. Obviously if I could, I would post two posts in one day. Nevertheless, publishing content like that takes time which I merely can't find time for these days. 

The polls will be touching on either topics I'm unsure on picking (the majority will be around food) or two diverse recipes I feel are equally splendid but I'd like a second opinion.  I'm especially excited to release my first poll later tonight. Although, to further enhance my excitement, please PARTICIPATE and cast your vote

I give my word, it always makes a difference and I always take your opinion into account. Of course, the majority of votes will be selected. However, if I feel the second option is still particularly good and not an idea to discard of, I'll place in a future poll so not all hope is lost.๐Ÿ˜Š

I'm ending this post on a short note but PLEASE participate in these polls and if you enjoy what you see, be sure to check out my other recipe posts and I'll see you in the next one.

Recipe Post N0.7- Apple Crumble MUFFINS(gotcha๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚)

Happy Saturday!

This week, for a fortuitous incentive, I'm in a rather cheerful, bright mood. As a result of this, I appear to be irritating towards my friends when I am in a particularly good mood so I apologies in advance if I've annoyed you already. As it happens, yesterday was my big brother's birthday(wish him happy birthday in the comments and I'll let him know๐Ÿ˜Š). For this incentive, I've contemplated hard and eventually come to a conclusion I'll be presenting you all with a pretty basic muffin recipe with a twist. In case you're all unaware, I made apple muffins at the start of this year. So, perhaps you could call this an alternative to the post I did before.

In order to gather together a scrummy muffin, you'll need:

150g of plain flour

110g of wholemeal flour(I couldn't seem to find this in the shops so I brought spelt flour instead)

2tsp of baking powder

1½ tsp of ground ginger

a pinch of nutmeg

40g of rolled oats

100g of caster sugar

1 large apple diced(or two small ones)

2 eggs 

185ml of semi-skimmed milk

50g of low-fat spread, melted

For the crumble topping:
1tbsp of wholemeal flour(once again I substitued this for spelt)

1½tbsp of caster sugar

25g of rolled oats

1tbsp of low-fat spread


First and foremost, pre-heat the oven to 180℃/160℃ fan/Gas Mark 4. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases. Sift the flours, baking powder, ginger and nutmeg into a sizable bowl. Add any leftovers bits on bran in the sieve into the bowl. 

Subsequently, stir in the oats,sugar and apple.

Whisk together the eggs and milk in a jug, then add this to the bowl of dry ingredients along with the melted spread. Stir until the mixture is just combined.

To concoct the crumble topping, combine the flour, sugar and rolled oats in a mixing bowls. Use your fingertips to rub in the spread until the mix forms coarse crumbs.

Seperate the batter among the prepared muffin cases, sprinkling each with the crumble mix. Bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are golden and an inserted skewer comes out clean.

Cool on a wire rack and serve as desired.
