Its been a fruity old time here at Mog Towers, the sun is shining and the fruit bushes have been generous. But after all the effort spent saving the birds from Magnus, the little blighters have been raiding the strawberries, the raspberries, the redcurrants. Still, the babies have all grown up now and Magnus has been busy guarding our new tent. We are off to this festival at the weekend and needed a home that we could carry easily over some distance.
I tried my hand at baking muffins after getting hold of a copy of the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook in a charity shop. What I had underestimated was the need to use proper muffin cases. Or possibly to use fresh and not frozen fruit, or maybe even lighter fruit. Whatever I did wrong, the fruit sank to the bottom and stuck onto the baking tray. Thankfully they were so tasty that we overlooked their less than sparkling appearance. Next time I'll be using muffin cases if only to save on the washing up.
