SCANDI

Myself and Dan are in the stage of buying a house which means my relatively tame interiors obsession is now in overdrive. Where I once had one interiors board on Pinterest I now have specific boards per rooms, per theme, I even have boards focused on a piece of furniture. If you're an interiors fanactic too you can find me here

I love the Scandinavian look and I intend to add some warmth with country accents. Hopefully it will work out just as I picture it in my head! For now here are some pieces (and a bathroom) that I recently found and love.

There'll be plenty more wish lists to come so watch this space!

LEMON AND POPPYSEED CUPCAKE RECIPE

Sometimes there is nothing better than a simple (yet utterly delicious) lemon and poppyseed cupcake. These were a BIG hit with my mumma a non chocolate lover and a BIG hit with me an avid chocolate lover!

INGREDIENTS
makes 12

175g caster sugar
225g self-raising flour
zest 2 lemons
3 eggs
100g natural yoghurt
175g melted and cooled butter
1 tbsp poppy seeds

ICING

225g softened butter
400g icing sugar
1 juiced lemon
poppy seeds to decorate

METHOD

  1. Heat your oven to 180C and line a 12 hole muffin tin with cupcake cases.
  2. Mix the flour, poppy seeds, sugar and lemon zest in a large mixing bowl. 
  3. Beat the eggs into the yoghurt until combined and then pour into the dry mixture with the melted butter.
  4. Mix together until all the mixtures are combined and lump free.
  5. Divide the mixture between your cases, one tbsp per case tends to be just right.
  6. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. The cakes will be quite pale in colour so don't use this as a measure for how 'done' they are.
  7. Leave to cool for 5 minutes in the tin and then lift out onto a wire rack
  1. To make the icing beat the butter in a large bowl until softened. Beat in half of the icing sugar and the lemon juice until combined. 
  2. Beat in the rest of the icing sugar until the mixture is smooth.
  3. To get the same effect as me, using a piping bag with a round nozzle and pipe each cake. Sprinkle poppy seeds over your finished cupcakes.
Enjoy!
