Last night, Will and me decided to make a little surprise for our cast :) We thought we could make them cupcakes to eat after our Dress Rehearsal and to give them strenght for the evening performance. We ended up making Doughnut Muffins and they came out amazingly well! I wasn't expecting them to come out as beautiful and perfect as they are shown in the pictures of cook books but they did!
Here I leave you some pictures and the recipe we used:


Ingredients (Makes 12)
175g/6 oz Butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
200g/7oz Caster sugar
2 Large eggs, lightly beaten
375g/13 oz Plain flour
3/4 tbsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Bicrbonate of soda
Pinch of salt
1/2 tsp Freshly grated nutmeg
250ml/9 fl oz Milk
100g/3 1/2 oz Caster sugar
1 tsb Ground cinnamon
2 tbsp Butter, melted


1. Grease a deep 12-cup muffin pan. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Add the eggs, a little aat a time, beating wekk between additions.

2. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and nutmeg together. Add half to the creamed mixture with half of the milk. Gently fold together the ingredients before incorporation the remaining flour and milk. Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin pan, filling each hole to about two-thirds full.

3. Bake in a preheated oven, 180ºC/350ºF/Gas mark 4, for 15-20 minutes or until the  muffins are lightly brown and firm to the touch.

4. For the topping, mix the sugar and cinnamon together. While the muffins are still warm from the oven, brush lightly with melted butter, and sprinkle over the cinnamon and sugar mixture . Eat warm or cold


P.D We named the cakes "Fennies" to make reference to the play "Fen" by Caryl Churchill which there was a  big discussion about performing that play or the one we finally did. Some people didn't get over it so we decided to honour it.

P,D 2. We did a slightly different version by adding chocolate twirls to the muffins. They were DELICIOUS!
