Blueberry Muffins Recipe

scar wilde

Hello loves, ❤

If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know that I’ve introduced BAKING into my life as it is so therapeutic & everyone around me has been loving the goodies I’ve been making.

Below is the recipe from Betty Crocker’s Blue Berry Muffins

You will need:

  • Betty Crocker Blueberry Muffin Mix
  • 1 egg
  • 180ml water

Let’s Get Started:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees then put the mix, egg & water into a mixing bowl & mix away.
  2. When the mixture has all combined & is a smooth consistency, start filling your muffin patties 1/3 to the top.
  3. Pop in the oven for 15-20 mins (My trick it to keep an eye on them at 15 mins as you don’t want them to get dry, take them out when the top of the muffin springs back)
  4. Once they are ready, pop them onto a cooling rack & let them cool.

This is so easy & simple, & EVERYONE WILL LOVE THEM!

Once they were cooled, I ate 3 straight away 😛

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

Friday night, my weekend started as soon as I finished work on Friday – I love a good Friday afternoon, I get into weekend mode & I am excited for the weekend 🙂

This was the pretty view that I got to witness from my office on Friday night ❤ How beautiful is it?

When it is daylight savings, I get to witness the most amazing sunsets 🙂

I am a lover of sunrises & sunsets ❤

My weekend consisted of a lot of food 🙂 Nom, nom, nom, nom ❤

I had the most yummiest breakfast on Saturday morning, how yummy does it look? Can’t go wrong w/ some smashed avo, poached eggs & feta on sourdough bread 🙂

I also learnt how to knit on Saturday, I remember attempting to knit as a child but I forgot so I got taught again & that was SO fun, I am in the process of making a scarf, I can’t wait to show you once I am finished.

I also caught up on House Rules a show that a group of 5-6 couples compete against each other to renovate & design rooms & get points on their work.

Saturday night consisted of cheese board & baking – As you all know, I love baking, baking is so therapeutic for me ❤ I made Salted Caramel Cookies (Linked my recipe, check it out) I don’t bake them for too long bc I love when they are soft, chewy & gooey 🙂

I love how much I have been baking lately, every weekend I’ve been baking some goodies & I absolutely love it ❤ Does any one feel that baking does some wonders to the brain? I think it could be the sweet cake smell 😛

On Sunday, there was more food (Ofcourse there was) I absolutely loved this breakfast too most certainly a difference to the day before.

The food was delicious & the sun was shining, it was a great start to a Sunday – This picture deserves to be BIG & LANDSCAPE! Look at that breakfast spread – I’ve never experienced a breakfast like that. IT WAS AMAZING! Certainly couldn’t finished all of it but it was SUPER yummy. img_4272

I went & chose my new glasses, so I am very excited for that 🙂 I wear black ones at the moment & I feel they are too harsh on my face 😦 So, I decided I am going to get new ones, these ones are so nice & a little out of my comfort zone BUT I am willing to challenge my self & take new leaps. I’ll show you all my new glasses when they arrive 🙂

I also purchased a new yoga mat, I got a lovely grey one – SCREAMS MY NAME – My life palette is literally black, white or grey! I can’t wait to show you all my new mat 🙂 I love it AND… I get to use it tonight at the gym 🙂

In the night, we had a family dinner & had family over, sat by the fire place, had dessert & ofcourse some tea 🙂

Then I had a shower, did a lovely face mask packed my gym bag & set out my clothes for work the following day then went to bed 🙂

MY NOMINEES:

I cannot wait to read your replys 🙂 Thank you again to Ingrid for this tag 🙂 I had so much fun sharing what my weekend consisted of 🙂

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

Hello loves, ❤

Another recipe for you bc I am just LOVING baking at the moment. It’s fun, it’s therapeutic, it’s calming & you get to eat them at the end 🙂

Below is the recipe for the Triple Choc Chip Muffins by Betty Crocker.

You will need:

  • Muffin Mix
  • 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs

Method:

  1. Preheat oven at 180 degrees.
  2. Add muffin mix, vegetable oil & 2 eggs in a mixing bowl and MIXXXXX.
  3. One this has been mixed thoroughly, use a spoon to spoon out some of the mix into your muffin cups (Make sure you fill this 1/3 of the way as these will rise dramatically.
  4. Once all muffin cups are filled, pop them into the oven for 20-25 mins (I tend to start watching mine at 15 mins & take them out a bit earlier to ensure they light, fluffy & moist).
  5. Allow this to cool on a cooling rack for about 10 mins before serving.
  6. Enjoy 🙂

Salted Caramel Cookies

n

Hello loves, ❤

Hope everyone is having a lovely Thursday – ONE MORE DAY UNTIL THE WEEKEND! Woohoo, short week as it was a public holiday on Monday for the Queens birthday, so I only had a four day working week 🙂

Does anyone have anything fun/exciting planned this weekend? I know I will most certainly be doing some gym classes on Saturday & Sunday, I am very excited for those.

I did pilates for the first time last night, all I can say is I have VERY tight hamstrings & I felt like an awkward pretzel. But, over time I am hoping to become more flexible as I am struggling at the moment. Pilates was good for me bc you focused on your breathing, which is a big thing for me & my anxiety.

We are here because… I MADE SALTED CARAMEL COOKIES & I want to share the recipe & some photos with you.

Baking has become such a lovely hobbie to do on the weekends, either Saturday or Sunday I love to do some baking, I feel so content when I bake 🙂

Let me know if you decide to cook these, they were DELICIOUS!

You will need:

  • Salted Caramel Cookie Mix
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 egg

img_4035

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees & put your mix into a bowl, crack the egg & pop it in, melt your butter & also put that in too.
  2. Start mixing w/ a wooden spoon to form a thick-like-batter, after this has been mixed start using your hands to mix the batter.
  3. Start rolling the dough to make a 3cm ball (Don’t make them too big as they will expand + flatten in the oven.
  4. Pop they tray into the oven for 25-30 mins. (My little trick here is to start watching them at about 15 mins – I take them out earlier & let them set on the cooling rack, that’s how you get soft & chewy cookies)
  5. Enjoy 🙂
