banana cupcakes with honey cinnamon frosting

thought’s i’d break out the baking tins this weekend. decided to try this lovely looking recipe from my new favourite http://www.marthastewart.com/

decided to try baking some banana cupcakes with honey-cinnamon frosting. the recipe is really easy-peasy! a beginner could do it, but watch out, the cupcake recipe are for real banana lovers only. the cupcakes turned out pretty interesting- it’s quite dense, with a healthy dose of bananas in them (i’ll probably reduce the bananas when i try this again). It’s almost like a moist banana-bread. If you’re a banana lover, you’d just love these moist luscious cupcakes.

The frosting is really sweet, the recipe asked for just a bit of cinnamon. i love the flavour of cinnamon more than honey, so i loaded on more cinnamon to suit my own tastebuds. It turned out pretty good by accident really, as the bananas i used weren’t actually suitable for baking- mom bought them for banana fritters. They were ripe, but not as sweet as other bananas, a little bit on the tart side. Which worked perfect for me, it balanced off the sweetness of the honey-cinnamon frosting.

All in all, i enjoyed it, i’d definitely try these again!

lovely apple pie

decided to start baking again. serious baking. not just cookies.

i used to bake all the time. apple pies, pecan tarts, chocolate cakes, the list was endless. i fell in love with baking at a young age of 14. in Food and Nutrition class. the day i rubbed butter into flour. i rubbed and rubbed. loving the feeling of the flour crumbling between my fingers and i rubbed too long. it got tooo tooo soft.

i baked with such viciousness as i fell in love. tempting my boyfriends with sweet treats. but as i outgrew one boyfriend after the other (or rather, we outgrew each other). i slowly stopped baking. as if baking was like falling in love, each time less exciting as the one before.

but now i’ve found the love of my life. and i feel happy. passionate. in love and ecstatic. and its awoken the baker in me.

I made apple pie, and served it ala mode for mother’s day.

its my favourite recipe. pretty easy. tell me if you’d like the recipe. i can send it over! =)
