Fruit (loaf) muffins

Today’s recipe just screams autumn, right? When baking whole house smells of cinnamon and that is one of the most comfting thing for me. I started looking for something nice to have my brandy butter with (yes, Christmas is already on my mind) and I was set on dried fruit loaf. But since hubby is traveling, whole loaf would be much too much and I decided to go with muffins, packed with dried cranberries and nuts. And brandy butter goes reeeally well with them:)

Ingredients:  (makes 8 muffins)
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 cup dried fruits, nuts etc.
3o grams butter (1 ounce)
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Put water, sugar, butter, dried fruits in a small bowl and heat until sugar dissolves and butter melts. Let cool a little bit.

Pour into muffin forms and bake in 180°C for about 2o mins. That’s it:). The recipe is ectremely easy and quick, I’m quire sure everyone will like them!



Avocado egg salad

I’ve been trying to get more fruits and veggies into my breakfast. Usually I would just go with toast and egg, enough to keep me full to 12am. 12 am is a magical time in China, when about 99% of its vast population will enjoy lunch. I wasn’t used to this at first, but quickly it became a habit. Anyway I’ve been looking for new ways to enjoy my toast and egg and this quickly became my favourite.


1 ripe avocado, in cubes
2 cooked eggs
2 tablespoons yoghurt
2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
lime juice
salt and pepper


Cut your ingredients in any way you like. I like when the egg yolk is still soft, but its totally up to you how you make it. Just mix all of together and serve with a worm toast:)
