For my birthday I was very spoilt. My family, MR and his parents all put in to get me my new pride and joy, a Kitchen Aid!! I have wanted a Kitchen Aid for ages and thought it would be the perfect present for my 30th. Hopefully it will still be going strong in another 30 years time.
I love it so, even though I have only used it once.
Here it is in action making it's very first thing, blueberry and raspberry mini cakes. I can't really call them muffins seeing as I used a butter cake mix as my base and to me cupcakes have icing so they are mini cakes. I like to swap half a cup of flour for half a cup of almond meal, keeps them nice and moist for a couple of days instead of drying out after the first day. My new baby (who I'm tempted to dub Blueberry Muffin after the Strawberry Shortcake character.. thoughts?) clashes terribly with the dreadful colour of the benchtops in the kitchen though, so excuse that part. Just another motivator to renovate the kitchen sooner rather than later. Although, with all the plans we have for the next few years already I think it will still be later.
