Dreamy White Cupcakes





Ode to a cupcake

Beautiful cupcake
your silky white frosting swirls
like flower petals
I want to eat you

Your mushroom top and
your delightful little stump
makes my mouth water
I’m going to eat you

Cupcake you’re so sweet
a tasty miniature cake
baked special for me
I ate you

Pancake Day - Butterscotch Sauce


In the UK yesterday, we celebrated Pancake Day. Lots of lemons were bought, and pancake races were held up and down the country. My husband and I had pancakes for breakfast, and we decided to break from the traditional lemon and sugar toppings and opt for a scrummy butterscotch sauce.

This recipe below is definitely a keeper. I'll be making it many more times!




Ingredients
  • 50g/2oz butter
  • 50g/2oz golden syrup
  • Vanilla pod, split
  • Lemon juice (approx 1/3 lemon)
  • 75ml/2½fl oz double cream
Directions
  1. Place the butter, brown sugar, golden syrup and vanilla pod in a small saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer.
  2. Remove from the heat and add the lemon juice to taste.
  3. Stir in the double cream.
  4. Remove the vanilla pod before serving.
