New Year's Eve | Baking!
Apple & Cinnamon Cupcakes!
If you have been following me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr (so many social media outputs, so little time!), you'd have to be in denial if you haven't noted my baking habit!
It started as a way of getting rid of excess nerves during exam revision time (oh, April and May what you did to me?) and became a re-discovery of a secret passion of mine . Even better, I have learned how to turn many a cake recipe into a cupcake version!
To this end, I figured I would finally start to share recipes on here! That way you, when you see a new picture posted, you can head over here to the blog and see the corresponding - simple - recipe! So without much further ado, I give you a recipe I have been using for ~4 years from a Marks and Spencer Afternoon Tea recipe book (includes yummy-looking sandwiches).
Prep and cooking time: 35 minutes
90g Butter, softened
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1/2 cup (110g) Caster sugar (I use 90g of Light brown Muscovado sugar)
1 1/3 cups (200g) Self-raising flour, sifted
1/2 cup (125ml) Milk
1 Medium red apple (150g), quartered, cored and sliced thinly
15g Butter, melted
1 tablespoon Granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
Spiced honey cream:
2/3 cup (160ml) Double cream
2 teaspoons Honey
1/4 teaspoon Ground ginger
Pinch Ground Cinnamon

I'm Lola - a hair obsessed doctor who stumbled into running long distances and baking all the cupcakes.
I blog about life, running and of course, hair! I'm an Altra "Team Red" Sponsored Athlete, so I will do the occasional running shoe or gadget review.
