Six Sources Of Chocolate In Each Muffin

Elvis Meets Oreo at the Bottom of a Black Cupcake

What was so great about Elvis? Was it his oozing charm or his gel oozing quiff? Was it the fact that he could waggle his hips probably better than a lot of girls? Was it his, um, radical dance moves? Was it his voice which was so deep and melodious, it still makes you to want to glide with it?

Yeah, I think the answer is all of the above. He was after all The King. Full stop, no questions asked. But another thing he was famous for, a very well known thing actually (especially amongst us foodies) was his love for a special sandwich.

To be precise (ahem, Thomson without a ‘p’), a very special sandwich.

A sandwich slathered in peanut butter, overflowing with sliced banana and crispy fried bacon before the whole sandwich itself  was fried again in hot butter on a pan or griddle. Sounds a little, um, out there but these days everything is. In those days, nothing was except Elvis and what Elvis did was made law so this sandwich now still bears his name today – nice one 😀

Less Than 2 Minutes = Nutella Muffin

Still sick today!!! And I missed out giving Ms D her melting moments at her surprise party 😦

And just now, I had a Nutella craving – but seriously, who can be bothered to whip up Nutella brownies or Nutella crème brulee or something! Forgive me Bell’Alimento but not all of us have a Nutella cooking gene of creativity!!!

So then I thought and pondered and definitely wanted more than just banana in Nutella or spoon in Nutella (hehehe…) and then it hit me! I had a single muffin – no, sorry, a SINGLE LADY muffin recipe stored away after a long scour through healthy dessert addict, Chocolate Covered Katie’s, blog.
What I loved about her posts on these muffins was that they were healthy as sin with just about no sugar (1 tbs sugar is how much people put in their coffee or something!) or sugar substitutes, no butter (which I continued in my adapted recipe) and basically nothing which can cast your thighs in the spotlight while still delivering a sneaky hit – cool huh?

11Best part was that it was a microwave recipe and I love microwave recipes! If you are sick and sore but want something a bit more extravagant look no further than here folks – this takes even less time than the 5 minute chocolate cake recipe!!!

Cupcake Takes Over Pie

Actually Written: Term 3 2011

Yep, this Lemon Meringue Cupcake was a school Food Tech class extraordinaire of an
item – a true love for me (and without chocolate too!) Sweet cupcakes with a
surprise lemon curd filling (store bought but seriously, just use a homemade
version – probably from the lemon meringue pie!). I tweaked the recipe here and
there because well, for one thing, there was a lack of curd – 1/2 cup for 12
cupcakes are you serious? I also added 1 tbs lemon juice to a very lemony muffin since it was very sweet.

Overall, a dam good imitation of a pie without being the
classic pie. Doesn’t make much sense but when you make it, I promise it will.
Oooh, and my awesome teacher brought in her blowtorches – We could have sold
our end results at a cupcake bakery (or even THE cupcake bakery because they
all looked so fabulous! – well, most of them…)

Mr Cream-Cheese Married Miss Muffin

Actually Written: 21st May 2011
My family, especially my mum, was not too keen on these. Only my grandpa and I are
cheesecake fans and mum didn’t want cheesecake tasting muffins with her tea.
But I made them anyway. And the weirdest thing was discovered!
Cream Cheese Muffins don’t give a cream cheese flavour. They simply make the batter
so much better than normal muffins!!!

Oh my gosh, the fluffiness of these muffins, the fruity
batter, the moistness made me  squeal with delight like a 5 year old.
