Happy Blogiversary to me!
Yes, it has been a year since my first words hit this page for public viewing. So far I have published 59 blog posts including this and and have had about 4000 page views. Not too sure what that means but the numbers sound good enough to me! I should probably sit and reflect about all that has happened through the past year but I would rather talk about my yummy cupcakes.
I tend to get asked why I end up baking so much in a week. Its not always because I want to but most of the time I sort of need to. At my house, any food sitting around becomes my responsibility to get rid of it. Carrots, apples, mushrooms, extra box of icing sugar, etc. you name it. Most of my casual baking and cooking helps to use up whatever is sitting in the pantry. So here’s what I made with a few extra apples lying around.
These cupcakes have a slightly spicy twist to them and very are quick and easy to make. There’s cinnamon in the batter, in the frosting and I also sprinkle cinnamon-sugar on top right before they go into the oven. So if you’re not a fan of cinnamon, these are probably not the cupcakes for you because they would just be too bland without the cinnamon. I’ve written the recipe for 6 cupcakes which is usually ideal if you feel like having a few for breakfast. Of course you can see that I did not make 6. At all.
“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”
So altogether I am very surprised that I managed to keep this blog going for a year. And that too, with a certain amount of regularity if you ignore the two months of my wedding chaos. I suppose that might be because I’ve had a fairly relaxed year which has given me ample motivation and time. Here’s to hoping that I don’t ever lose the motivation even if I lose the free time!
