I have noticed that a lot of people who love doing crafts also love to bake and can produce amazing cakes and other goodies. Now I love to craft and bake but unfortunately my abilities stop in the kitchen. To date, I have never actually managed to bake a decent cake. My efforts end up like biscuits. Mentioning this once in a previous post, the lovely Zoe from my Sew Make Believe sewing group, kindly lent me a recipe for ‘easy’ muffins. Skeptical was I as I mixed the ingredients together. However, amazement! After 25 minutes in the oven, out came some lovely looking muffins that were the right shape!! After a few minutes I had to have a taste – I almost burnt myself but they were good! Now I realise to the average cook, this is just an everyday thing but for me this was a massive and very satisfying achievement. I was so pleased with myself and I’m now even anticipating the next batch. I’m thinking chocolate muffins with choc chip, or blueberrys or raspberries. But for now I’m happy just to eat a nice muffin that I have actually baked! And here it is (before I ate it).
