Copy Cat: muffins, apple cake and parmesan shortbread

Here are 3 recipes from fellow food bloggers that I’ve done during the last week:

Banana Maple Muffins from Anne’s Food are perfect breakfast muffins. I know that mine look a bit dry, but they’re not. Easy peasy to bake, moist and rather fat free.

Toffee Apple Cake with Cranberries from our apple cake queen Pille at Nami-Nami. This was delicious! I did some small changes: I pre-baked the crust and I used my vanilla caster sugar (I always put left over vanilla pods, without seeds, in a jar with caster sugar). Next time, because there will definitely be one, I’ll make sure to use some more sugar and butter on the top so that I’ll get more of that toffee-ish sauce which appears when baking.

Parmesan Shortbread with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes and Marinated Goat’s Cheese from Anne’s Food. This was the first course at the 13 courses dinner we were invited to at Anne’s. If you make them for your guests they will love you! I’ve already done the shortbreads twice and they were a huge hit. My only change is that I’ve been using feta cheese instead of goat’s cheese. I always roll out the dough between plastic wrap, which makes it much easier as the dough then won’t stick.

    OK, now I have to have lunch immediately. I’m *so* hungry.

    And for the record, I’m pretty happy with five cats. Maybe six. :)

    I’m sure the originators must be very pleased too!

    The shortbread courtesy of Anne looks fab.

    Lovely-lovely pictures! I haven’t made muffins for ages, and I’ve got some bananas. I wonder…
    And I’ve got so many apples left (saw my parents this weekend, that’s why), that I’ll be making more apple cakes soon. I wish I had your apple cookbook for inspiration:)

    Natz: Hoppas att du tyckte om äpplekakan lika mycket som vi gjorde!

    Isabella: I love the breakfast buns, it’s so luxurious to have freshly baked bread in the morning without any effort!
