It occurred to me today that this blog is only covering half the story. My desire to bake and eat cake is so strong that I want to make things that are both a treat but also a little bit healthier. It’s been said for a while that cupcakes with mountains of buttercream are dead. They may be pretty but the quantity of sugar is really unjustified. I prefer to use fresh produce and fruit and nuts feature highly. I’ve also been trying to use different flours particularly wholemeal and brown rather than white sugar.
Even so there has to be a balance. In order to be able to eat muffins regularly I have to be able to burn the calories. I do a pretty good job at maintaining my weight but now I want to lose it. So that I don’t have to give up making delicious muffins to share with you I have to do a whole lot of exercise. With good access to sporting facilities I’ve tried my hand at many different forms of exercise, but still I’m a sporadic exerciser at best. While jumping around in Zumba class today I realised that this might be something you’d be interested to hear about?
I really like, and I’m sure most of you do too, looking at delicious photographs of muffins but the majority of us want to know how to balance it all. I will definitely not be stopping my development of muffin recipes and sharing them but I do have a few ideas of what I could write about to try to address the issue. These are just my ideas, I’d love to know what you think? What would you like to read about? I’ve made it easy for you with a little poll (I’ve been wanting to do a poll for a while now) but if you have any other suggestions it’d be great if you could leave a comment. Thanks for your help!
