After a lovely weekend of eating and exploring in London, it was good to get back into the warm fug of the kitchen this morning and start creating. I've just got back from my second bake of the day...16 trays of Double Chocolate & Walnut Brownies, Apricot & Ginger Flapjacks, Rocky Road...so it feels good to have those made and stacked for delivery and now I can relax a bit with a cup of tea!
Early this morning was considerably less frantic. The Coffee Tree's order was one of my favourites because they're easy to make but taste and smell so good! Raspberry Jam Doughnut Muffins....mmm!
Vanilla-speckled muffins with a ruby red raspberry jam centre. Sounds good enough?
Well, I'm sure they would be...but the finishing touch comes when they are removed from the oven but still hot...
It's this process that lifts them from the good to the sublime..
They looked lovely and were greeted with a big 'oohh' when I got to the coffeeshop which is just what I like to hear!
I hope you're enjoying your Monday. Welcome to the week xo
