Peanut Butter Cupcakes

For many years I have been on the hunt for the perfect peanut butter cupcakes. I adore peanut butter and will eat it with almost anything and quite happily on its own straight from the jar with a spoon.

My Nans Banana Cake

My Nan’s Banana Cake     Banana in any form of cake, loaf, biscuit, cupcake or just plain fruit, reminds me of my Nan’s banana cake.

Malted Chocolate Cupcakes

  For my first post I had to think carefully, did I want to go for something overly complicated just to try and show off a bit and no doubt have it back fire terribly or should I go for something a little simpler and more elegant.
