The sun has finally come out. Therefore it is time for gin and tonic, and cupcakes obviously! Now I have my life back, Friday is baking day again, hurray!
The other day I attempted to make dairy free hollandaise (which it turns out is basically mayonnaise) so I had some left over egg whites. After browsing through pretty much all of our baking books (can you tell I’ve just finished uni for the year?) I found a recipe for Italian biscuits in my Pastry book using egg whites. So I had a go at these biscuits, which are just icing sugar, ground almonds, egg whites and honey, and some jam to fill them, easy peasy! I really felt like plum jam, so I bought a jar. And then I felt like I should bake some more, so I made some plum cupcakes.
