I know I promised this weeks ago but when I was ready to launch it Emily announced her In The Pink event. Such a worthy event deserved our support so I delayed Donna Day until November.
Donna's Self Frosting Cupcakes started life here and travelled around the world of blogs . Now you can all join in. You have a month to get organised (make sure you have a jar of Nutella in the cupboard) and on the weekend of 19th November make your self frosting cupcakes , post a picture and send the link to me at pinotgrisATgmailDOTcom
Place 175g/6oz very soft butter, 3/4 cup caster sugar, 3 eggs, 1 3/4 cups sifted all purpose flour and 2 tsp baking powder in a bowl and mix, using electric beaters, until smooth.
Line 12 muffin tins with paper cases.
Spoon in the mixture and swirl 1 1/2 tsp peanut butter through each cake. Bake for 20 minutes.
The original recipe uses Peanut butter but Nutella seems to be the topping of choice. Check out Nic's recipe as she rewrote the original altering the amount of butter and giving a more detailed set of instructions.
AND there is a prize for the best looking muffins. The issue in the photo above is my own personal copy of the very first Donna Hay magazine. If your muffins are the prettiest the launch issue is yours. You also get the opportunity to choose the recipe and host the next Hay Hay it's Donna Day .
