As requested, here is the recipe I used for the sour cream lemon cupcakes pictured two posts ago. The recipe is from Campion and Curtis In The Kitchen, the original 2002 edition. They have a new and more whacky-do edition out now, but I still like my old one.
- 125g softened butter
- 200g caster sugar
- 3 eggs
- zest of 3 lemons (they say one, I say three)
- 2 tbspn lemon juice
- 150g plain flour
- 60g self raising flour
- 100g sour cream
*To make the lemon syrup put 100ml lemon juice and 90g of caster sugar in a pan and stir over a low to medium heat till the sugar is dissolved. Bring to the boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Pour over the cooling cakes. You may need to add a splash of water if it is a too thick.
Today I cleaned the windows of my car, well the ones I can reach, ie the front and back, not the wagonny ones. Then I had to have a little lie down. The Labradors were allowed into The Forbidden Zone and pined for me. Or if you are Lorelai Gilmore, you nibbled at the Jasmine like a little goat.
Then it was off to the dentist, Dr Galloway: he is very good. He fixed my tooth. As always, it hurt afterwards when the anaesthetic injection wore off. But the whole thing was very painless. In the interest of Blogtober, I have photographed the inside of my mouth. In the interest of any readers, I have Black and Whited the picture. It was scarily pink. Must be the effect of the flash. Then I came home and had some drugs, and a little lie down!!!
My handbag fell off the chair last night and my mobile had a sad accident. It would only work if you pressed hard on the back. I tried a little green cardboard fix, but to no avail. Luckily I still have my original phone, so I charged it up and popped the SIM card in and off it went. It is ever so hard to take a photo in this house without someone sticking their nose in. This is, well you know who it would be!!!
So now I must go to bed, have a long lie down, and be up bright and early in the morning because I am meeting up with someone tomorrow morning!!!! There will be pictures, if I remember. And my new oven is being delivered tomorrow too. An exciting day!!
