German Apple Pancakes 2


 (1) Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

(2) Butter muffin cups of tin and sprinkle with
about 2 table spoons of granulated sugar.

 (3) Peel, core, and slice apples into 1/2 inch pieces
and in a medium bowl, toss apples with brown sugar,
lemon juice and cinnamon.

(4) Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Add apple mixture and saute, turning occasionally until caramelized,
10 to 12 minutes. Remove pan from stove and let cool 5 minutes.
Divide caramelized apples among prepared muffin cups and set aside.

 (5) In the bowl combine flour, salt, 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
and mix well. Then add 2 tablespoons melted and slightly cooled butter,
 eggs and milk. Mix well until it's all blended and not too lumpy.

(6) Pour batter over apples. Transfer tin to oven and reduce heat
to 400 degrees. Bake until pancakes puff up, about 15 minutes.

(7) Remove tin from oven and pop out of molds by inverting the
tin onto a flat work surface. Dust with confectioners' sugar,
 serve immediately and enjoy!

Chocolate muffins were made this weekend with 
the help of Black Magic Cake and a DIY Tulip Cup tutorial...


1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cups cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 cup strong black coffee, cooled
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup fresh blackberries 
3/4 cup of confectioners sugar to decorate
(This made about 24 regular sized muffin cups)

Parchment Paper and Scissors


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Line trays by cutting parchment paper into squares 2 – 3 inches wide.
One at a time press the squares into the cups in trays. Smooth your fingers into
the corners. Make sure not to force the parchment too far so it doesn't tear.
Don't worry if it doesn't fit perfectly flat, the muffin batter will help with that.

3.  Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, 
and salt in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer.

4.  Add eggs, coffee, buttermilk, oil and vanilla.  
Beat at a medium speed for about three minutes. Batter will be thin.

5.  Fold blackberries carefully into batter.

6.  Fill tulip liners 2/3 full with batter and 
bake muffins for approximately 25-30 minutes
or until they pass the toothpick test.

7.  Once done, remove trays from oven and 
dust muffins with confectioners' sugar and serve!

They were pretty yummy mis amores
