Easy Gingerbread Muffin Recipe with Cream Cheese Frosting

I was In costa coffees a few days ago ordering my usual Latte In an attempt to keep myself awake with a caffeine fueled high when I looked over at the mouthwatering food selection (The giant bourbon gets me every time) And noticed 'Ginger Bread Muffins' I was intrigued and immediately set out to make my own well obviously after I had sampled one of theirs... I swear it was all In the name of research.
Their quite heavy and can be a little drying on their own but accompanied by a hot drink and they go down extremely well, a perfect little spiced treat for getting through these cold winter days.

  • 2 1/2 Cups Plain Flour
  • 2 Tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 Tsp Cinniman 
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt

Ready? Lets Cook

  1. Preheat your oven to 175° 
  2. Add the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl (Flour, Ginger, Cinnamon, Baking Powder, Salt, Brown Sugar) Mix together
  3. In a separate large bowl add the butter, maple syrup, Apple Sauce, Black Treacle and the egg. Mix with either a stand mixer or with a hand mixer (This can be tough as its very thick!) 
  4. Gradually incorporate In the dry mix and the milk untill its all combined
  5. Scoop Into muffin cups 
  6. Bake for 20 - 25 Minutes 
  7. Allow to cool
  8. As the muffins can be quite dense on their own I added some frosting to balance out the flavors this is completely optional but I just think It worked well with it. 
  9. Add the Butter to a bowl and the Caster sugar and Cream cheese - Mix well 
  10. Scoop Into a piping bag and top the muffins.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks Review

These little liquid lipsticks of joy have been living unloved In my makeup case for a good few weeks now, sitting there crying out to be used. My good friend Laura from Lelore  kindly gave me 'Hot Pepper' back In September as she bought one too many, I tried It on once, fell In love with the texture but then completely forgot about it, naughty Charlotte! It wasn't until a mini splurge In boots when I picked up the other two that I remembered I owned it.
The texture of these things are sooooo good, the clues kind of in the name 'Velvet' there's probably not a better way to describe it, they go on glossy but after 10 minutes they dry completely matte (Heaven) They also pack some serious staying power and have to be one of the only lipsticks I've tried that can qualify as kiss proof,  Joe doesn't seem to believe me on that one though and still darts off If I try kissing him with the Hot pepper shade on.. Honestly once you've allowed it to fully dry, kiss your hand and there will be no mark hallelujah!
