Saturday Baking

I spent a wonderful Saturday morning with my friend Carol and her two little angels, baking cup cakes for her Mom's birthday party. Adam (3) and James (2) were the best kitchen helpers you could ask for, except I must remember next time to keep the silver balls out of sight!


I have posted the recipe before, but in case you missed it :

Raven Cup Cakes

1 Cup Sugar
½ Cup Soft Butter
2 Eggs
1½ Cup Self-Raising Flour
½ teaspoon Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
½ Cup Buttermilk

Set oven to 180°C.
Line a 18 muffin tray with cupcake paper.
Cream to the sugar and butter, until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs, mixing well after each addition.
Sift in the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
Add the butter milk and mix until smooth.
Spoon into the batter into the cupcake papers (¾ full - don't overfill them)
Bake for about 20 minutes.
Leave to cool slightly before removing from the pan.

Once completely cooled, decorate with lots of butter icing and for added sparkle some edible fairy dust!

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
