Solo project: Mocha Cupcakes

Homemade Mocha Cupcakes for a friend! I love how piped Swiss Meringue looks, don’t you?


Solo project: Berry-almond muffins

4 Aug

As I’ve probably shared before, every couple months I head to the library for some culinary inspiration. This time around, I found “EatingWell in Season,” which features fabulous ways to use your farmers market finds.

It also has a surprising number of baked goods (healthy of course) for each season. The summer section has a recipe for “Berry-almond quick bread,” which I decided to make into muffins.

Using half whole-wheat flour and half white flour, plus brown sugar, gives the bread a caramel, nutty flavor and a thicker texture than your average muffin. Definitely recommended for potlucks and for sharing at work.

Solo project: Madelines!

Nora and I have agreed that we are gonna start posting quick (or not so quick) blurbs about solo baking endeavors, so this is my fist whack at that!

Our lovely friend Nicole got me a Madeline pan for my birthday this year and I can’t get them out of my system. They’re basic little egg cakes that are amazing with tea. Here’s a photo of some of the batch I made tonight for my new roommates and landlord.
