Recipe: Nutella Cupcakes

Hello Everyone,

So for my first cupcake recipe i thought why not make it fun and have it Nutella(which is something i love) <3

Earlier today i baked cupcakes for my school because its almost the end of the year and were having a classroom party tomorrow and people can bring food and drinks! :D

Here is the recipe:

In a meduim size bowl, mix in-

2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
½ Cup Sugar
2 ½ Teaspoons Baking Powder
½ Salt
3 Eggs
½ Cup Melted Butter
½ Cup Milk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 Tablespoons Nutella Spread
Then whisk it all together and place them in baking tray cup holders and leave in the oven for 35 minutes.
This recipe makes 12 cupcakes.

*If you like you can add extra nutella as the frosting like i did but if you want to leave it without any extra topping then that is up to you!:D

Thank You And I Hope You Enjoyed The Recipe! :D

Review: Lofat's Talia Dessert

Hello Everyone,

You may know this if you follow me on twitter, but if you don’t then I entered Ansam518’s birthday competition and I won!!! :D
I won the competition sponsored by Lofat and the prize was to get their talia dessert that they recently released. It got sent straight to my house and as soon as I received it I started taking pictures.

It arrived in this small cute box.

So for the taste I actually really liked it.. I am a huge fan of custard desserts and this one didn’t disappoint me! :D 
It was also very light and it has only 195 calories per cup. (YESSS!!!!) :p
My little brother also got a spoonful for himself to try out, for a person who doesn’t like custard, he said it was pretty good!  ;)

It’s available in Faiha, Kaifan, Jabriya and Mishref supermarkets. Also, it is available in their lifestyle diet menu! :D
To order from Lofat give them a call: #22250650 (they deliver)

I really would like to thank Ansam and the Lofat group for the prize :D

Thank You All For Reading!

Quick And Delicious Dinner

Hello Everyone,

I have to admit im not really a fan of frozen food but their is an exception with some this garlic bread with cheese i got from sultan center about 2 weeks ago!

Olde World-Ciabetta Rolls with Cheese

One box comes with 6 small peices, each 3 is packed in one bag.

One peice is just perfect for dinner time when you want something light..all you need to do is put it in your oven toaster until it becomes golden brown. It tastes very delicious, and i would highly reccommend.
(Sorry, im not sure of the price because i threw away the reciept.)

You can find it in the freezer section in sultan center, i got this box from the sharq branch but im sure its available in other branches as well.
