This little guy has been part of our family for quite a while. Can you guess who he reminds me of.
I'm hoping you are all thinking the same as me. Mr Tumnus from The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe. This has been my childhood revisited read for the month of March. As you will all know it is part of the Chronicles of Nania by CS Lewis of which there are seven books, but this is my absolute favourite from the series.
My Dark Sorceress continues to progress.
I am now on the home straight with just this bottom half of the chart to complete. I say the home straight there are still around 50 rows of stitching to do but she is is pretty stunning in the flesh. The light in the cottage isn't particularly good today due to the weather and it being very dark and windy outside and therefore I don't think my photographs do justice today.
I omitted to put the recipe on my post for the Chocolate Hazelnut Muffins so I am going to put this right today.
So to make these very yummy muffins you will need.
375g Self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
25g cocoa powder
100g firmly packed brown sugar
125g melted butter
2 eggs lightly beaten
Grease 12 hole muffin pan or use the little muffin cases
Sift all the dry ingredients into a large bowl, stir in the butter, eggs and buttermilk
Spoon one third of the mixture into prepared pan/cases, top with 1 level tablespoon of Nutella. Top with remaining mixture.
Bake in a moderately hot oven for about 20 mins.
The most important part about these muffins is that in order to enjoy them at their best don't let the man in your life or anyone else for that matter especially a little Cavalier King Charles sneak one before they have a chance to cool down.
I cannot believe we are almost at the end of March already.
Some of you will now be enjoying a well earned break for the Easter holidays if that is you I do hope you have a well earned rest.
