Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

This recipe has been sitting waiting to be posted for over two weeks. And just as I'm about to post it I realise I can't even remember where the recipe came from so I can't even write that up for you. This is exactly what my life has been like lately. Everything all over the place and rushed! With that in mind I have decided to stop posting my Sunday Baking links, and pushing myself to blog once a week. So I'm going back to the beginning, blogging when I make a great recipe, no pressure to get stuff up or worrying about my blog being quite. I love to bake, and I love to share my recipes, but sometimes life gets in the way, and that's OK. So please, continue to check out my blog, the recipes will continue just not consistently.

By the way the mayonnaise cake was amazing. Just google it and I'm sure you will find the recipes!

Apple Donut Muffins

These are one of those recipes that you just don't know what to name them. They look like muffins, but the mix is more like a scone dough. They are covered in cinnamon and sugar which explains the donut part of the name. Whatever you call them they are great, especially straight from the oven. You can use any apple you like, but a sweet apple is best. Made them twice in one week and received with rave reviews.

Apple Donut Muffins
Recipe from Pinoy Cook

2 apples
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 3/4 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground nutmeg

1 egg
1/4 cup milk

1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

1. Peel and roughly chop the apples.
2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and nutmeg. Add the butter to the flour mixture. Rub the butter against the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
3. Beat the egg. Pour in the milk and stir lightly. Add the chopped apple to the egg-milk mixture.
4. Pour the apple mixture to the flour mixture. Stir just until blended. Do not overmix.
5. Form the batter into loose balls and place in the holes of a muffin pan.
