Baking Sunday #3

Baking Sunday #3 : Strawberry & sour cream muffins

Another 'Baking Sunday' ?

... Well, this time I cheated a little, it was a Wednesday.

Nevertheless, spring has (at least more or less) also arrived in Austria !

The birds have started to sing, the flowers and trees have started to bloom ...
& there's a sunny mood in the air !

Strawberries are even more popular in early summer, but I found some & they just had to be used for some bakery !


You'll need: (for 12 + muffins)

  • 200 g of flour
  • 60 g oat flakes
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 180 g of (brown) sugar
  • 3 teaspoons of vanilla sugar
  • 150 g of soft butter
  • 300 g of sour cream
  • 150 - 200 g strawberries
  • confectioner's sugar for dusting afterwards

Go get your apron & let's get our spring time baking frenzy started ! ...

my lovely cupcake apron hurhur :B

Put flour, oat flakes & baking powder together into a bowl.

Now crack the two eggs & whisk them in another bowl.

Then add sugar, vanilla sugar, butter & sour cream into the bowl containing the whisked eggs.

Mix both doughs thoroughly together.


Now it's about time to let your oven heat up to 180°C !

Now it's strawberry time !

Those are quite positively not 200 g ...
I just couldn't resist scoffing some fresh strawberries in ... oh yummy ...

Cut them into small cubes.

And pull them carefully into the dough.

I got myself some flower-shaped muffin cups !

Before filling in the dough, be sure to grease your cups thoroughly,
using butter or vegetable oil.

So as soon as your oven is all heated up -
'chop-chop !' off they go !

Let them bake for about 20 - 25 minutes.

And then ...

Having a hearty bite ?

No, not yet.


My mum bought me this nice porcelain étagère !

A really nice option to display your bakery !

Dust with some confectioner's sugar & they'll become even more delicious !

Bon appétit !

A very easy & quick recipe !
The results were reeeaally nice mhhhm ... :)

Although the ingredients are intended for 12 muffins,
I actually got 16 out of it !
It would be good if you had more than 12 muffin cups at home, so you don't have to wait.

With the confectioner's sugar on them they tasted like 'Kaiserschmarrn' - a superb Austrian dessert !

Yummy yummy yummy ♪

I've got strawberry & sour cream muffins in my tummy ♪

That's it again !

Happy baking & Thank you for reading

Life in Colours.

Okeydokes ... my fingers are itching to type another post !

This time: My very first colour film shot with my dear Diana F+ !

I was really surprised how this film turned out !

A tad too dark overall for my taste, but that had more or less to be expected,
because most of the pictures were taken indoors in more or less bad lightning.

Then again I really love the effects.


What kind of equipment did I use ?

Camera: Lomography's Diana F+ in the special edition 'Glow'

Film: 120 mm, Lomography's Color Negative ISO 400.


More film scans to be posted soon ! :D

Also I placed my first fisheye film for development -
& I'm almost bursting of excitement !!! :D

Finished !

Thank you again for reading !
