Thanks to the summer temperatures, I’ve found myself less than enthusiastic to turn on the oven. Finally, Monday morning we woke up to clouds and drizzles. I was so excited by the cooler weather, I did a little cupcake dance! Once I regained my composure, I whipped out my baking “to do” list and got to work. Amongst my bakes were Chocolate Zucchini Bread (which I made to update the pictures in my aging post) and cupcakes (once you’ve done the cupcake dance, you have to make them😉 ).
Have you noticed how summer seems to arrive earlier every year? Here in Vancouver, we’ve already had several stretched of hot weather and it’s still, technically spring. Plus officials are preparing us for a long, hot, dry, season. Yuk!… Not exactly ideal conditions for making a cake. That is, unless the cake is made from ice cream😀
Did you know that it’s been three weeks since I posted a recipe containing chocolate? Three long chocolateless weeks… Not to worry, my fellow chocolate lovers! This week, I’ve got you covered!
When I think about cupcakes, I envision little kids with messy hands and frosting covered faces… and sprinkles. Rainbow sprinkles everywhere… But you know what, if I’m to be brutally honest, it’s usually me with the messy hands and a frosting covered face… My point is, cupcakes aren’t just for little kids. They’re for us big kids too😀
Do you feel totally bombarded with pumpkin recipes yet? It seems that come Autumn, every cook and their dog has a pumpkin recipe to share. I mean take a look at Pinterest these days…. I hope you can handle one more.
