What a wonderful morning it was with my favourite recipe for Apple Cinnamon Cranberry Muffins that I baked with my 2,5 year old son...And the great chat with my friend! (talking mommy hood)

If you want to try the muffins, here is the recipe ingredients and have a lovely Thursday! Hugs Z

With electric mixer, blend the following:
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp vanilla extract

1 can (370ml) evaporated milk
2 tbsp sour cream

Add also mixture of:
2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp cinnamon

And blend in with a spatula:
2 medium apples, peeled and grated
1 1/2 cup frozen cranberries

Makes 12 muffins and bake it at 350F for 25 min approx (: Enjoy!

My son was enjoying muffins but the flowers too...when playing with his ABC game...

    If you do make the madeleines(David lebovitz recipe minus the lemon glaze-do let them 'rest' in the fridge for at least 1 hour before baking)
    Cheers Carolg
