Vanilla Fudge Cupcakes

Vanilla Fudge Cupcakes

I've temporarily (or so I hope) lost my blogging mojo. I took a week off at half term as I was also on annual leave from my day job and quite frankly needed a rest...and I'm currently struggling to get back into it. I've done loads of cooking over the past few weeks but haven't felt the urge to set up my camera and blog any of the recipes - although I wish I had taken some photo's of the Spinach and Sweet Potato soup I made on Monday! I'll just have to make that again I guess.

I thought I'd break myself back in gently with some cupcakes I made a while ago but never got around to publishing. Everyone loves a light and fluffy cupcake with a smooth and creamy butter icing don't they? These yummy Fudge Cupcakes make the perfect after school treat or bake sale offering (Red Nose Day is not too far off!) and are super simple to make. Enjoy!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE CUPCAKES

  1. The recipe can be easily doubled to feed a crowd.
  2. The un-iced cupcakes can frozen for up to 3 months in an airtight container.
  3. If you don't have any fudge use mini smarties or chocolate chips instead.
  4. Use salted butter in the icing  - I find it gives it a much better taste.

  1. These are absolutely stunning Beth. I seriously need to up my photography game I know, but I'd be over the moon if I'd taken anything as good as these. They sound rather yummy too ;)

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Family Favourite Minced Beef Cobbler

An easy, filling and relatively frugal meal that the whole family will enjoy, even the fussiest of children. I love savoury cobblers, there's something very comforting about them, especially when you top the scones with plenty of cheddar cheese like I do in this recipe. This minced beef cobbler features heavily on our meal plans during the winter months and I like to serve it with seasonal veggies, or failing that some peas from the freezer (to be fair it's usually peas from freezer!!). My lot would quite happily gobble a bowl of this on it's own though. It's most definitely a keeper in this house!


TIPS FOR MAKING THE MINCED BEEF COBBLERUp the veggies by adding peppers, mushrooms and courgettes to the mince.Make a veggie version by omitting the bacon and using Quorn mince instead.Double the recipe if you're feeding a crowd.Add a tablespoon of caramelised onion chutney to the mince to give it an extra rich flavour.Serve with seasonal veggies (or peas from the freez…
