Banana & Chocolate Cupcakes: An Ode To Hummingbird Bakery

October 25, 2015

cupcake 3

Hey leute,

I’m sitting at home in my fluffy pink flannel bathrobe, listening to Serial, munching on one of these cupcakes… it’s a Saturday night… but I am loving it. I think this, my friends, is what is known as getting old. Don’t worry, I have some wine too.

So… anyone else feeling like the cold weather is bringing on some serious baking frenzies? Just me? Sure…

Have you guys heard this live Lianne La Havas ? Da bommmmmb.

cupcakeWhen I first started baking, with no knowledge of the difference between baking soda and baking powder back in 2012, my mum gave me the hummingbird bakery book as a gift. It’s got a big place in my heart. I’ve heard people baking experts say bad stuff about it, like “their cakes are so dry” … When I hear that, all I hear is envy surrounded by a mass of green envy waves bouncing out of their aurors. They use more milk than I’m used to, but why the hell not. These banana and chocolate cupcakes are dynamite. I made so many I had to give some to all my neighbours and my flatmates and invite friends over.

SO MOIST – Mark I apologise, but they just are! It’s like eating a fluffy banana with chocolate made by a unicorn’s mother in law.

Not an exaggeration.

Thanks Hummingbird bakery, you rock. OBVIOUSLY.
