I started writing reports on Tuesday night, it's now Sunday afternoon and an hour ago, I had finally finished them all, every single one. Success. I wasn't quite sure what to do with myself, I had a nap, woke up, looked at dogs on the internet and thought "I'll try again with baking". Most people know I'm not the best at baking and by that I mean I'm the worst at baking... but today, it all changed. I baked the most delicious muffins ever and I am so proud of myself. So, if you would like to make them too, here's the foolproof recipe.
You will need:
300g Plain Flour
200g Sugar (I think it's fine to use a little less)
3 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon of Salt
50g Cocoa Powder (Optional)
Measure out and mix the ingredients together, I used a hand blender to stir the mixture but a spoon might work just as well. Our oven has to be lit by hand as it's an old gas oven, it also has no temperature control... so for this part I'll just say "preheat your oven". Grease your muffin tray (I used vegetable oil but you can use margarine or butter) and pour in the mixture. Then, put the tray in the oven and keep an eye on it until the muffins have risen. Stick a knife into a muffin, if it comes out clean, you can remove them. Leave to cool a little and then eat. I don't know where to buy frosting or how to make it so I think we'll just have them plain or with margarine and jam!
I'm dedicating tomorrow to preparing for my PhD interview, which is happening in the morning on Thursday the 25th of June 2015 at Pałac Staszica. I am so incredibly nervous.
