And now for something completely different.
Well, not COMPLETELY 🙂 But it’s not sewing for a change. Tom decided he wanted to have a Windows 7 Launch Party and was selected! Soooo, I needed to bake something extra special. Out came my Vegan with a Vengeance cookbook and came up with Fauxstess Cupcakes.
I got out all my yummy vegan ingredients.
Tied on my cupcake apron. (Check out that belly, and I didn’t even eat a cupcake yet!)
Sifted my dry ingredients…
Mixed them with the wet 😉
Baked and Filled!
And don’t forget to add icing and arrange on lovely fiesta plates in the shape of the windows logo!
Voila, Windows 7 Cupcakes 🙂
I’m always cold when winter comes, and the heat just doesn’t cut it for me. The only thing that works is baking, or at least that’s what I tell everyone else. I’ll post all my favorite recipes so your house can be warm and smell good too!
Without further ado;
Brown Sugar Blueberry Muffins
Preheat oven to 375° F.
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour, plus 1 tablespoon for dusting blueberries
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons half & half
3/4 cup frozen blueberries
1. Cream the butter & sugar. Mix in on medium speed vanilla, milk, half & half, baking powder. Make sure you scrape the sides down. Slowly add flour on lowest speed.
2. Coat frozen blueberries in flour (put them in a bowl together and stir). Add the blueberries to the batter don’t over mix or you’ll crush the berries and it’ll get too “blue”.
3. I like to use baking cups, I don’t even own a muffin pan. Spoon out so that they are all even with the tops of 12 regular size muffin cups.
