Baking up a storm

At my office we have a Thursday breakfast tradition. If you want to take part your name is added to the list and then it works out to about twice a year that you have to bring breakfast in to work on a Thursday.  Last week Thursday it was my turn.

So I skipped going to Tiger’s football training on Wednesday night and got my baking on.

Bacon, Corn & Cheddar cheese bread

Savory Muffins (feta, olives, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach)

Peanut butter cupcakes

Apple cinnamon cupcakes

a couple of baguettes and some cold cuts.

It was delicious, even if I have to say so myself. 

Himself wanted to know why it is that I bake for my colleagues and not for them at home – it is simple I said, I don’t want us to get any fatter. If I baked like this at home all the time we would be rolling around instead of walking. 

I am still looking for the perfect Peanut butter cupcake recipes so if you have one that is light and fluffy please pass it along. This one was nice but just a tad too dense for my liking. The Apple cinnamon was amazing! 

And for those interested here are the recipes:

side note: the first time I made it I added the cream style corn but I found the bread to be very heavy. This time I didn't add it and it made all the difference. 

side note: I really liked these but next time I'll add more feta and olives. Also, I added some baking powder to the second batch and it was a lot better.

Peanut butter cupcakes with Peanut butter marshmallow fluff frosting 
side note: I liked these but they were not quite as light as I usually like me cupcakes so I'm still going to be trying out other recipes. For the frosting I sort of just make it up. Peanut butter, butter mixed until smooth. Then I just added some marshmallow fluff and icing sugar and mixed it all together.  Once a find a recipes that I really like I'll post it.

side note: these were Fantastic!   


  1. Mmmm those Savory Muffins sound delicious! It ALL does!! I don't bake unless it's Christmas or for a special occasion...for the same reasons! LOL!!

  2. Your savory muffins sound so good! I pinned the recipe if I ever get the compulsion to try baking again. ;o) I agree with your reasoning behind not baking for yourself - it's much safer to bake for others, have a few nibbles, and then give the rest away!

  3. WHY are you posting such yumminess when I'm trying to be disciplined. Damn you!

  4. Oh my goodness ALL of these sound fabulous. And I've never heard of Peant Butter cupcakes! Must go do some baking now!

  5. Ive never had a PB cupcake but I certainly want one now!

  6. I am already hungry & now looking at that delicious looking food makes me more hungry!!!! I haven't done PB cupcakes w/ PB frosting yet...I do make a delicious peanut butter CUP cupake w/ PB frosting though if you ever want that recipe =)

  7. it all sounds delicious!! especially the peanut butter cupcakes because I love anything at all with peanut butter.

  8. Yum! I would be so overwhelmed to make food for everyone (because I'm terrible cook). Everything here looks amazing. Great job! And fun idea for an office!

  9. We do this at my office too, and my turn is coming up next month! I may steal some of your ideas!
