It's been a while since I last posted and for good reason; I have actually been quite busy.
It was my birthday on the 11th, and along with a slew of gorgeous gifts was a delicious box of xocaltyl chocolates - how divine do they look. My favourite was the violet followed closely by the rose (I love flower chocolates). The day was made even better by the discovery of a lone red flower in my garden; a christmas joy (I have no idea what the name of the flower is but that's what I am calling it.)During the week we were also lucky enough to be invited by Stefano Canturi to preview his collection made for the epic Baz Lurhman film, Australia. There were some seriously gorgeous pieces, a few were snapped up by some of the guests; lucky women.
On Sunday we went to lunch at Bistro Guillaume at Crown Casino with family - during the rest of the day I managed to squeeze in some time to make a batch of Vegan muffins.
\Doggie was eyeing them off all day.
prep time: 18mins to make batter and coat walnuts.
cooking time: 20mins.
taste: 4.5/5. The walnut topping was crunchy, sweet and salty - really lovely, but I used half magerine and half butter. I also had to add 3tbs of milk to the batter as it was dry and dough-like. So my muffins weren't true vegan.
would I make it again: Yes.
