5 ingredients Spanish Churros 

Today I am stuck at home feeling sick and of course this is the time in which I’m having a craving for everything that is not within my reach, today I just wanted Spanish churros, but I’m feeling too sick to go to San Churro, so I decided to make my own.

When I first made Spanish churros, the experience was so frustrating, that I never made them again. This time I happened to stumble upon a recipe by Recipe Tin Eats and it looked so easy, only 5 ingredients used for the batter, I was of course immediately sold. 

The churros batter was SO easy to make that it was dangerous, dangerous because it meant that I could easily whip these up anytime and quickly! (Uh oh.. there goes my diet).

The one thing that I used differently, was this time I used my wok to cook the churros , it is such a great idea and easier to work with than a pot, less splash with the hot oil.

The churros only took three minutes to cook and they were ready to eat.  For the chocolate sauce, I used Lindt chocolate and I did not add the thickened cream because I like my chocolate sauce thick.


The churros tasted so delicious, it took me a lot of resistance not to eat them all. My husband who doesn’t like sweet things liked them too.

I feel so much better now that I’ve got my Spanish churros fix, now it’s back to bed for me, so I can get better.

Death by chocolate cupcakes 

I only realised today that I haven’t written a post in a while. I’ve been so busy working long hours! Today I decided to find time to write about this amazing chocolate cupcake recipe that I found online from Sally’s Baking Blog.

On Thursday I decided that I would Google a new recipe to try, I wanted to make my friend cupcakes for her birthday, when I did a search of chocolate cupcakes, Sally’s recipe for death by chocolate cupcakes caught my eye.

The death by chocolate cupcake recipe was pretty easy to follow, the only one thing that I forgot to do was to sift the cocoa powder, this lead to small chunks of cocoa powder in my cupcakes. It was important to sift the cocoa powder first because this recipe cannot be over mixed and it would be hard to mix out the cocoa clumps. I also baked the cupcakes for only 15 minutes in my fan forced oven. 

Here is one of the finished product..


And another one from the second batch..


The death by chocolate cupcakes tasted so good, it was a rich, moist and dark chocolate sort of cupcake, without the dense texture of a chocolate mud cake, I really loved them, it was the perfect indulgent chocolate fix.

My friend whom I baked for really liked them too, so I was happy.

I totally recommend using this recipe if you want a rich dark chocolate cupcake without the heaviness of a chocolate mud cake.
