welcome to your new home
there is nothing better than baking muffins and the combination sounds fabulous
mmmm
I am on vacation with daughter and dog and baked banana raisin chocolate nut muffins, i use only brown sugar and wholewheat flour
it came out great too
and we had been eating them on the train constantly
good for hikes too
Keep baking
i used to bake healthy breakfast muffins with carrots, apples and coconut , very nice in the morning
Always a good way to feel HOME SWEET HOME
( especially since i know breakfast at the hotel here will be minmum and will consist of cold meat ( for dog , we are vegeterian ) , toast , corn flakes , maybe yogurt , not too exciting coffee)
Oooh, sounds fabulous, Starshine - I'd not thought to put raisins, chocolate AND nuts in - I'll try it next time .

I'm thinking I will make Nigella Lawson's Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake. Can't go wrong with chocolate cake, right?!
No, not with this one. Made it some time ago and it was easy to make and delicious. Have fun!

For those who like to experiment with scone recipes:

Argus, not only does your food look amazing, but you can really take a picture! Can you give any tips on how to take a good photo of food? I've taken a few and then decided not to post because they always look dark and horrible. Thanks!

Thanks, Economisto. I was fascinated by food bloggers who took a lot of trouble to photograph their food and observed their angles, etc. My little point-n-shoot Nikon has a macro function which I use to shoot food and small plants. Use natural light or available light as much as possible (try with the light coming from one side, too). Take care of what's around your food: the plate and what's underneath and around it. Printed plates seldom work, I find, unless it sort of relates to the food. Also, do try medium close and up close shots; sometimes deliberately exclude part of the food. Happy experimenting!

Cupcake is the US term; fairy cake or butterfly cake is UK English. Muffins are more a type of bread, but this term was very popular with the Swiss until they found out about "cupcakes". Anything goes, as long as it's tasty, imo.

Dark chocolate cake with raspberry filling and ganache. I think I've officially decided that ganache=win.
