At the moment I am experiencing huge urges to get stuck into a serious baking session. I am at my happiest when in the kitchen creating sweet treats and whisking, mixing, generally getting flour everywhere and making a huge mess.
The fact that all of my baking equipment is still en-route from London is saddening me deeply. Plus the fact that I had to leave all my baking supplies and ingredients behind so I now have to build up everything from scratch. However the small light at the end of the tunnel is that our shipped possessions should (crossing all possible body parts) be with us at the end of the week. Yay for more clothes, all my books and my electric whisk!
Whilst perusing the archives of the amazing Smitten Kitchen food blog (so inspirational, but don't even think of hopping over there if you're feeling hungry unless you want to torture yourself), I came across the recipe for these awesome sounding peach cupcakes with brown sugar frosting pictured above. Also top of my list to make is bannana bread with cream cheese frosting and white chocolate grated on top. We sampled this delight in a cute Auckland cafe at the weekend and it was seriously incredible.
