Bosh – Vegan Lemon Fizzle Cupcakes

Food

Good morning guys, I hope you are having the most wonderful day/ week/ month 🙂

Over the weekend my boyfriend and I ended up making the most (and I mean MOST) delicious lemon fizzle cupcakes 🧁! Oh…and did I mention they were *vegan*?

“Zesty, Fizzy, Amazing” is bang on the mark

My boyfriend bought a BOSH cupcake mix for me to try as he knows I love plant based food <3. As it was a ready mix it was super easy to do and took barely any time at all…

All we had to do was place the cake mixture in a mixing bowl and then add 110mil of water, grate lemon zest into the mix, and add a bit of oil.

Once this was done, we mixed until smooth and then placed the mix into cupcake holders on a baking tray! We let them bake for 25 mins and then added a lemon drizzle while they were still cool.

Once cool we added more drizzle and popping candy (all included in the box)!

The drizzle required only some lemon juice added to the pre-made icing and it was good to go 🙂

The drizzle ran a little but never mind haha

The popping candy was truly a beautiful finish for the cakes – it just gave them a little something extra and literally made them POP haha.

AND if anyone is curious… we ate all six cakes in the same night…


If you fancy giving these wonderful cakes a try, all you will need is:

– One lemon

– Vegetable based oil

– 110 mil water

– BOSH lemon fizzle cupcake mix


Hope you enjoyed this little cupcake post ~

See you soon!

Visiting Friends and Making Pizza

Food

A few weeks ago I finally got to see my two friends after not having seen them for many weeks during a lockdown here in the UK.

We met up in the evening and had a chilled night-in making the most DIVINE homemade pizza in the pizza oven my friend owns.

I made mine veggie with lots of olives, goats cheese, and spinach ~

They were super easy to make and only took around 30 seconds to cook in the pizza oven!

The hardest part was lifting the dough off the counter and on to the shovel, which was more challenging than I had admittedly anticipated…

We spent the rest of the night catching up and giving lots of cuddles to Pippa the Labrador 🙂

Something Sweet

Food

On Sunday I visited a dessert restaurant in Shrewsbury for lunch. This was my first ever time at a dessert restaurant and I loved it! We ordered french toast and a strawberry and chocolate crepe and shared it between the two of us. It was so delicious, with the crepe being my wining favourite…

The restaurant was called ‘Sweet’ and it had a very colourful and vibrant charm to it. I would definitely recommend visiting here if you ever come to Shrewsbury as the food is delightful and the place just makes you feel happy.

I think it’s important at this time, during a pandemic, to make the most of eating out so that businesses can continue to do well and thrive. It must be a very worrying time for restaurant owners not knowing if they may be forced to close at any time.

You just have to remember to try and stay safe while you visit!

Visiting cafes and restaurants is something I have always loved to do so I missed it a lot during lockdown this summer… hopefully another lockdown won’t happen again any time soon.
