Did you miss me? I'm baking cookies and enjoying in my sparkly, freshly cleaned apartment. I love order and cleanliness! Today was suuuuuch a nice day. It reminded me of the beginning of spring. Neja please be patient, it will be here soon. When I went to the store to buy the ingredients for the cookies, I had the biggest smile on my face because of the sun. And then what happened? Horror, I'm kinda ashamed to say. Smiling I walked, I imagined how birds fly around my head and then I almost fell! Yep! On the sidewalk...there it was, a wire circle on the pavement and I got myself tangle in it! I barely managed not to fall on the asphalt! It happened so quick! But it lasted long enough to made me feel like shit. I was so embarrassed. And it happened to me next to the most busy road. I hope that only few people saw me, on the other hand ... if I made them laugh, then it's not that bad. This is worth something :). I don't know why this happens to me all the time. Once I fell during running. It was in the spring or summer, I know that it was already dark. I was listening my ipod, jogging and all of a sudden I was on the floor! What the hell! Two women asked me if I was okay, I was so happy that it was dark outside, so they couldn't see my red face. I said, that 'I'm cool and started to run again. Nothing upsets me more than not reaching the goal that I had set. Then the next time I fell was in a parking lot next to a building where I live. I ran because I wanted to catch the bus. I fell pretty hard and today I have a scar on my knee. So today I didn't fell because I caught myself, but I later hit the edge of something at home and ... yep, I had a bloody knee. Everything is fine, let's go to today's recipe :). I always wanted to try a cupcake, they look so stunning! They made me feel so full and even I could eat only one at a time. I was looking for the recipe for the glaze quite some time and only the third day I was able to do exactly as I imagine it. It's totally UNhealthy and if you will do it, do not apply so much as I did, because I did that just because of photos.
With love, Neja

Sestavine za mufine
- 220 g moke
- 1 vrečka pecilnega praška
- 200 ml mleka
- 80 g kakava
- 100 g sladkorja
- 2 jajci
- 2 žlički vanilijevega sladkorja
- 90 g stopljenega masla
V večjo skledo damo moko, sladkor, pecilni prašek, kakav in vanilijev sladkor. Premešamo. V posebni skledi zmešamo jajca, mleko in stopljeno maslo. Vsako posebej premešamo, nato tekočo maso zlijemo k prvi masi in dobro premešamo, da odpravimo grudice.
V pekač za mafine zložimo modelčke in v njih do 1/2 nadevamo maso, nato dodamo čajno žličko nutelle, ki jo prej malo segrejemo, da je bolj tekoča. Nato nadevamo maso tako, da napolnimo modelček do 4/5.
Pečemo 15 minut pri 180 °C.
Počakamo, da se muffini ohladijo, naredimo glazuro in z njo okrasimo cupcakes.
Sestavine za glazuro
- 57g nesoljenega masla - sobna temperatura
- 57g soljenega masla - sobna temperatura
- 108g margarine
- 1 žlica vanilijevega ekstrakta
- 450g sladkorja v prahu
- 2-3 žlici zelo mrzlega mleka
- Barvilo za hrano (jaz sem uporabilo malino)
V mikserju zmešajte maslo in margarino. Dodajte ekstrakt vanilije. Dodajte sladkor v prahu in temeljito zmešajte, dodajte barvilo. Ko je vse temeljito zmešano dodajte žlico mleka, nato spet sladkor in spet žlico mleka. Masa ne sme biti preveč mokra zato bodite res previdni z mlekom.
