IMG_7902

Yummy, yummy chocolate cupcakes, with salted milk chocolate buttercream and roasted almonds.. When I made salted buttercream for the first time it was simply because I only had salted butter at home and didn’t wan’t to go buy the unsalted one. So I tried it out and LOVED it! I love salt in food so it only make sense that I would love it in sweets too! Milk chocolate with salt makes it taste a little fudge-y and Continue reading

I have found a truly amazing cupcake recipe… It’s the one I used to make apple cupcakes a while back, and I’ve now adapted it to make both chocolate muffins and tiger muffins. I’ve made chocolate cupcakes before and they have always turned out a little dry. Not anymore! This recipe gives moist and delicious cupckes every time and it’s super easy too!! I’m still out sailing and even though the kitchen is about 2 square meter and I have no specialty tools, just a bowl, wisk, saucepan and a scale, it turned out great! From now on, it will definitely be recipe I use for vanilla, chocolate and berry cupcakes. No doubt! Continue reading

Recipe – Apple, cinnamon and vanilla cupcakes

Yes, let’s go with that! anyways,) my mom always made apple crumble pie with vanilla sauce during the summers. Together with rhubarb crumble pie, that’s the most summery dessert I can think of.
