What better way to celebrate the “Love Month” and spread some love than by baking something special for your loved ones? I got a nice guest blogger who dropped by and shared just that with me today!
Today, I’m honored to bring to you Rebecca Subbiah RD, also known as @chowandchatter on social media. She’s been a great friend and has kindly come to “help me out” with a recipe, while I’m on the road right now. So stay glued to your seats, this is going to be yummy….
I was thrilled when the lovely Betty Ann, asked me to guest post on her blog, we have been tweeting for a while. I always enjoy learning about Filipino cuisine and talking about being a Mum with her, she has two grown up boys.
I wanted to pick a recipe from my homeland of Great Britain and something that I made with Jasmine my daughter. Its not the prettiest of cupcakes but tastes great. There’s a famous pudding with golden syrup at the base (treacle pudding) often served warm with custard in the UK, its something my brother and I would often request for pudding. So I decided to make a lemon cupcake with a golden syrup and lemon glaze to mimic this as a cake.

By: Rebecca Subbiah RD, of Chow and Chatter
4 oz of self raising flour
4 oz of sugar
4 oz sugar
4 oz butter
juice of 1/2 a lemon
about a tablespoon of lemon zest
1/4 cup golden syrup
2 small eggs
Cream the butter and the sugar until fluffy .
Add the eggs, lemon juice and flour.
And add the batter to cake papers and bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes until a knife comes out clean.
Meanwhile heat the golden syrup in a microwave for 10 – 20 seconds and add the lemon peel.
Drizzle over the cakes and enjoy.
This was a fun recipe !
Thanks so much, Rebecca! What a wonderful story and great recipe! I enjoyed the ease of this recipe and I’m sure my readers did, too.
And because it is the “love month”, I’m sharing with you and the rest of my blog readers my own personalized, handcrafted, one-of-a-kind art sketches which I made. I paint and draw them myself and craft them into Valentine cards for close friends and family.
