Baking Mad

While baking isn't one of my strong points, I've been embracing it more and more these last few months. I've gotten a few baking recipe books and so decided to try my hands at some of the simpler recipes - the ones that are (as Rachel would put it) 'Sherin Proof'.

I got a few baking supplies from Baking Mad, who have a list of their Baking Mad summer recipes on their website.
My first challenge was plain cupcakes. I used the recipe from my new recipe book and added lemon zest and lemon juice to give it a bit more flavouring.

It was an easy recipe, mixing butter, sugar, eggs, Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Extract, flour and lemon and then leaving them in the oven for no more than 20 minutes. They came out all golden and fluffy and were so delicious. I was so proud of them. I've been fasting these weeks so I was happily looking forward to eating these at the end of the day.

I clearly caught the baking bug as I immediately set out to make some chocolate chip brownies as well. While they don't look amazing and a bit crumbly (turns out we didn't have a right sized rectangle tray), they still tasted really good - I do love a bit of chocolate in my life. Again, I was really pleased with myself and now I really can't wait to spend some more time in the kitchen.

Your cupcakes look absolutely perfect, Sherin! I'm a bit inept myself when it comes to baking. :P

Wow! Your cupcakes turned out beautifully - they look so much better than anything I've managed to come up with in the kitchen. So far the only recipe I've mastered in my whole life are three-ingredient cookies. All you need are peanut butter, sugar and eggs so if I managed to screw that up, well... Who am I kidding, I probably could ;)

I never seem to have the right size baking tray but as long as it tastes good, I'm not worried about how it looks!
