Classic Yellow Cupcakes! - December 19th 2020, 12:26 PM

Julie made these delightful yellow cupcakes with chocolate butter frosting. They were truly wonderful. Were. All gone now so I'll leave you this recipe!

You can use any butter!

I'm sorry this hasn't had a reply yet! Can't believe I missed this one. Your recipe posts always look so yummy.

I'm a bit of a failure at baking but as alwasy with your recipes, I might give this a go. The chocolate mini eggs top it all off for me. They make everything better! Might be one for Easter this year...

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you, Flight. But I hope you've tried making some. I mean, I'm not a great cook, but I find cooking relaxing. Almost kind of grounding. And I LOVE baking on a rainy day! I think that is the very best of baking. It's so worthwhile during inclement cold, wet and windy days. The aroma of freshly baked bread, ginger parkin (a kind of ginger cake with a sticky toffee-type top, but tastes gingerish), Victoria sponge, or a chocolate cake that's gone crisp on the top and sunk a little in the centre - that's just pure joy!

Makes us feel good for actually achieving something that we didn't have to go and buy in a shop. Cheaper, too. So satisfying. And above all, tastes great. That, my friend - is what makes us feel awesome!

I made pizza using Elizabeth Romer's Pizza and Italian Hearthbreads. It was easier than we thought. Flour, a sachet of easy-blend yeast, a little oil and some water, kneaded into a dough over a floured kitchen worktop - easy!

The book can be bought from Abebooks.co.uk for £3.87 post free

Italian Pizzas and Hearth Breads by Elizabeth Romer

Julie made a pizza sauce (recipe also in that book) - a glug of olive oil, a crushed clove of garlic, a small finely chopped onion (? if I remember), gently heated and then a couple of tins of tomatoes which she scrunched down with a potato masher. Julie let the sauce simmer gently until it was reduced to about half. Before seasoning she tasted it and said the sauce needed a teaspoon of sugar. She used brown. Plus a generous dessert spoon of raspberry vinegar to give the sauce a piquancy. And a small pinch of dried herbs that included dried basil - just a pinch, no more!

In the pan it was a rich red colourful and aromatic sauce. Once it started sputtering - that was about ready.

We waited for it to cool before putting one ladle across the flatted circular pizza dough, and we set it aside to rise.

After some 20 minutes she scatter a mix of grated Parmesan and Cheddar over the top, a few fillets of anchovies straight from the jar, and put it in the pre-heated oven.

375F for around 30 mins, if that. The pizza? When it came out, it looked amazing! The pizza crust was about 1.5cm, the whole thing was the size of a beef platter. Flipping thing was so big that its edges almost touched the sides of the oven.

And the taste? Incredible!



And if I can make a pizza, then you can, too!

I agree cooking is therapeutic, and quite lovely on a rainy day with the phone shut off.
