Spanish Elly

14. 11. 11

This recipe gave me the idea to begin for this foodblog. We bake or cook something special on a regular basis here. The problem is that considering diets and avoiding diabetes. A great solution is giving it away. My parents live too far away but my boyfriend's parents or his colleagues at work are regularly suprised with baked goods. 

Most excess goes with him to his work. One of his colleagues is in to Spanish cooking, so we decided to try making cupcakes with a Spanish twist.


This recipe is voor 24 mini cupcakes
