30 Day Photography Challenge – Days 6-10

Here are the next five pictures from the Photography Challenge I’m doing!

Day 6 – Obsession

I have obsessed over many things and activities in general, and blogging has helped me find more things to obsess about. So I had to include a photo with a lot of things. Some things I have obsessed over are photography, blogging, stationary, Harry Potter, wedding, makeup, travel, and many aesthetic things in general.

Day 7 – Changes to Come

changes to come

This one was hard for me, cause I had no idea what to do. Lots of things change, seasons, clouds, people, etc. Instead, I tried to make a simple photo. I put in an empty page from my notebook. This is the one that I’m using for doodles. I hope to fill it up with lots of random things soon.

Day 8 – Routine

There were many options for this one too. I am a creature of habit, and I love my routines. I decided to stick with one of my favourite parts of any routine. A delicious breakfast, and my morning coffee.

Day 9 – Someone You Love

If you weren’t expecting a picture of Rory, then you may be new to my blog. Fun fact, this was the first ever picture I took with my new camera 🙂

Day 10 – Childhood Memory

Again, I was trying to think of what to narrow it down to. I couldn’t do a childhood home or room, since we moved around a million times and I can’t go breaking into any of those old houses. A childhood toy? I think I gave most away. Then I looked at my shelf. Good old Harry Potter. So many memories of reading those books. Sitting in cars, at home, at school, while walking home from school (I used to read this while walking home and it wasn’t the best idea, I bumped into a lot of things). Harry Potter has a special place in my childhood, and now.

That’s it for days 6-10. I’ll post the next five on the 16th!

Let’s Bake! (Apple Cinnamon Muffins Edition)

I blame all my American and European blogging friends for this, you guys with all your talk of fall..and apples…and cinnamon.

I really wanted to make muffins with those two ingredients, and I found this promising recipe from Robyn at Add a Pinch, which is incredible and amazing! Go have a looksie.

Okay, let’s get into it!

Here’s what you’ll need:

muffin ingredients

For the Muffins:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (+ 2 teaspoons for coating apples)
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (+ ½ teaspoon for coating apples)
  • 2 cups diced apples
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk
For the Topping:
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup ground cinnamon

You need a few bowls for this. First, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl.

In another bowl, throw the diced apples and 2tsp of flour together to coat them.

In one more bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Make sure the butter is really soft, cause this part got annoying for me as it took ages to cream. Add in the egg, one at a time. Then mix in the vanilla.

Fold in the flour mixture into your cream bowl, alternating it with the milk. Mix it a little, until it’s just combined.

Now fold in the coated diced apples.

Get your tins and spray them, so the muffins don’t stick. Scoop the batter in. You want them to be almost full but not really. Bake them for around 25 minutes at 180 C. Keep a close eye on them, you want the toothpick to come out clean.

For the topping, melt the butter in one bowl. In another bowl mix together the sugar and cinnamon.

Once the muffins have mostly cooled, dip the tops in the butter, then the topping. This part was a lot of fun.

Now you got some muffins! They are so good!! I ate a few (as did Rory), and the next day we ate some more for breakfast.
