Everyone loves gingerbread at Christmas time! From gingerbread cookie decorations for the tree, to gingerbread houses to sit as a centrepiece on the table. Why not try something different this year and whip up a batch of these Gingerbread Cupcakes.
These Lemon Coconut Cupcakes are sure to become an instant crowd pleaser with their hint of coconut and lemony tang. They are the perfect option when you are after a light cake for any occasion.
I modified this recipe today from a banana bread recipe I often use. It worked a treat, and is a great way to use up over-ripe mangoes! So summery and yum, full of nutritious ingredients and high in fibre with only a small amount of butter added.
I hope you like it!
Pear, macadamia and quinoa muffins are something a little different and both yummy and healthy. Lovely for the whole family you can eat them as they are or warm with some yoghurt and stewed fruit. If you don’t have quinoa flour you can substitute it for wholemeal (or white) flour.
Probably the easiest sweet to make for a baby shower (or indeed – any occasion) is the humble cupcake. They can be dressed up with decorations made or bought to suit any theme. Here we have used gender-neutral funky cupcake toppers, which will really make your guests smile.
When my bananas become inedible (happens pretty quickly in Perth after a hot day) I pop them in the freezer. They are perfect for muffins and cakes and make them yummy and moist.I whipped these up in the thermomix. They took 10 seconds and they are deliciously light and fluffy. Perfect for an after school snack. I generally encourage the children to eat them outside as they are pretty crumbly.
Apricot and chicken is a match made in heaven. Even the fussiest eaters will find it hard to resist the crunchy coating and sweet chicken flavour. You might want to make a second batch as these little roly polys will not last long.
