Cupcake . Muffin. Really now, is there a difference between a cupcake and a muffin? Is not one the same as the other with merely an aspiration of frosting?
Zucchini Nutella Swirl Muffins Baking Drama produces Zucchini Muffins with Nutella Swirl. Life and baking are one and the same. There are firm rules and other areas that offer plenty of room for interpretation.
We have certainly established my love for muffins, so it's not surprising to find another muffin recipe here. However, I have yet to share a banana bread recipe, which is a little surprising to me because it is one of my favorite things. There are two distinct types of banana bread, the dark banana flecked kind and the light slightly sweeter kind, this is the latter of the two. This bread is moist and sweet, but I have to say I am a bigger fan of the dark speckled banana bread I grew up on. This was a great alternative to the classic banana bread, and from reviews it seems like it is a great banana bread for those who swore they hated bananas or banana bread.

A s Daring Bakers , our monthly challenges mostly involve quite a bit of baking. Occasionally though, we take a break do challenges that do not involve baking and this month was one such challenge. This October, our hostess for the month challenged us to make ourselves some doughnuts. While many of us chose to fry our doughnuts, some others chose to bake them. We had the choice to fry them, bake them, glaze them, fill them, or make them any which way we wanted to, but we had to make some doughnuts.

I have been going to the Long Grove Apple Haus for as long as I can remember. They make the absolute BEST apple donuts. Long Grove is a little shopping area with all kinds of cute shops. I never really went for the shopping though. I went for the food. We would always get donuts from the Apple Haus, soup and cheese samples from the General Store, fudge from the Long Grove Confectionary, popcorn from the Popcorn Shoppe and ice cream from the Peppermint Stick.
I think I may have magic zucchinis. I buy a box on Saturday (grocery day), and it doesn't matter if I make zucchinis every day, I still seem to have some left the next Saturday! I don't know what they're doing in there...breeding like little bunnies? Either way, this is a great way to use up that wonderful summer vegetable. I can't take credit for this recipe; it is from the Slice of Feist blog. Overall, the muffins are very rich.
Jan The men in my life all have one thing in common: a strong, deep-seated penchant for chocolate. Growing up, my dad lived on a steady diet of Nestle Crunch bars and Oreo cookies.
this past christmas, my sister got me everything i need to make donuts: lara ferroni's book , a donut cutter, and a mini donut pan. which gave me the perfect opportunity to retry mini baked chocolate cake donut s . i made the exact same recipe, this time using my donut pan and this time, they're topped with a perfectly sweet raspberry glaze. did i mention these are done - start to finish, i even did all the dishes - in thirty minutes?! don't have a donut pan or haven't quite decided yet if you need one?! these bake up perfectly in a mini muffin pan. the only thing missing is the characteristic hole. raspberry glazed baked chocolate cake donuts donut recipe adapted from lara ferroni 30 minutes, makes 24 mini donuts for the donuts: 1 cup all purpose flour 2 tablespoons cocoa powder 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 2/3 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/4 cup buttermilk 1/4 cup sour cream 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 egg
