Easter Cupcakes






 My oven was out of commission for a while but now it's fixed. I had baking withdrawal, sort of. I'm aware that I bake a lot but wasn't really aware of how much I took having a working oven for granted. I missed baking cookies, cakes and brownies for the kids. I had to buy most of the sweets, which are ok, but it's hard to beat homemade baked treats. So, I'm back to baking regularly. 

Cupcakes are one thing that the kids love to have because although they're gaining popularity in Greece -they're not easily found. I whipped up a batch yesterday and they loved them. Here's the recipe that I used and have been using for a while. 


 For all who celebrate Easter this week...Happy Easter! 
We'll be having our Easter next week and I'm looking forward the feast.

  3. Thanks for that recipe I'm going to make some. I too love baking and had a hard time when in Greece dealing with an iffy oven. I finally got a new one last year and went crazy. There is a cupcake place in Napflio... ciao

    1. Hi Rositta, it's so nice to hear from you! My oven is very old and I can't wait to replace it. It does seem to have a mind of its own sometimes. I know of the cupcake shop in Nafplio as Liz and I are good friends. I'm hoping to make the journey down to Nafplio one day to taste those beautiful cupcakes. Have a great week! :)
