Easter cupcakes.

Easter cupcakes.

Sorry I didn’t upload a post Yesterday! I had one all finished and scheduled but it didn’t publish. But i have got a post today. One on my easter themed cupcakes. Let me know in the comments what you think and any good recipes you know.

Makes 12 muffin sized cakes.

  • 200g of butter or margarine.
  • 200g of sugar, any type is fine.
  • 200g of self raising flour.
  • 2 medium sized eggs.
  • 25g of coco powder.
  • 1/2 a table spoon of baking powder.
  • 1/4 of a table spoon of vanilla extract.
  • A few drops of milk.

For the icing and topping.

  • 100g of butter.
  • 300g of icing sugar.
  • 1/2 a tablespoon of vanilla extract.
  • 15g of coco powder.
  • 1 packet of mini eggs.
  • A few drops of milk.

Method.

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees. And line a 12 hole muffin tray with 12 cases.
  2. In a mixing bowl mix together your sugar and butter until it’s fluffy and pale.
  3. Then you can add in your eggs one at a time. Don’t worry if it looks a little bit  stodgy , it will work.Trust me!
  4. Once thats all been mixed together add in your flour bit by bit.
  5. Then put in the rest of your ingredients, the coco powder, baking powder, vanilla extract and milk.
  6. Divivd your mixture equally between the cases and bake in the centre of the oven for 15-20 minuets. Or until they are bouncy to the touch.
  7. While they are cooking and cooling you can begin to make your buttercream icing. Start by beating your butter for a good 5 minuets. You want it to be either a very pale yellow or a white colour.
  8. Then you can gradually add in your icing sugar. I would recommend mixing it with a folk to stop it from going all over the place.
  9. If it’s a little bit thick then you can add in a drop or to of milk.
  10. Divid the icing between to bowls. Then in one add the coco powder, and in the other add in vanilla extract.
  11. Now you can really do want you want. I put both in a piping bag and piped it onto the cakes to get this multi coloured effect. With a different flavour. But you can do want you want. However i would recommend not putting it on until your cakes are completely cool, otherwise it will just melt.
  12. Then on top you can add a few mini eggs, to give it that easter vibe!

Lots of love,

Healthy Pasta Bake

Healthy Pasta Bake

Hello Everyone,

In todays post i thought id tell you about my favourite pasta bake recipe! This recipe can feed up to 6 people so its great for when you have a gathering with friends. I would suggest a side salad to go with but that is optional! I hope you enjoy! If you do make this send us a picture on instagram so we can see it! (MilalorOfficial_15) let us know if you added anything to it as well!!

Okay so enough of me rambling, this is what you are going to need:

  1. 500-750g of pasta of your choice
  2. 3 chopped peppers
  3. 8 chopped tomatoes
  4. 5 chopped mushrooms
  5. half a chopped onion
  6. Ready cooked chicken (this is optional)
  7. 2 jars of your preferred pasta sauce (i like to use a chunky veg one)
  8. mozzarella

Method:

  1. Add some water to a sauce pan and start cooking your pasta.
  2. While your pasta is cooking chop up all your veg.
  3. Now your pasta is all cooked you need to put it in a large oven safe container i don’t really know the name of them but usually they are china!?
  4. Now add in all your veg, sauce, mozzarella and chicken and stir it all together.
  5. Now cook in the oven for 15-20 minuets at 200 degrees.
  6. Now take your incredibly scummy  pasta and serve with a optional side salad!

And there you have it a easy,simple,lovely kinda healthy pasta bake.

I hope you enjoyed this post and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another post.
