When we need a cake which can easily transported in a box, I tend to bake Muffins. And so I suggest Muffins when I talk with my sister about her birthday, too. She like the idea of Muffins but had no clue what kind she would like to have and so she announced that whatever I bring would be delicious.
And so I opened my pantry and looked through my baking ingredients on search for inspiration. Finally I saw in my chocolate box half a bar of white chocolate, a leftover from the Christmas baking.
Immediately a recipe starts to form in my brain: muffins with molten white chocolate, a hint of vanilla and cardamom….
And that’s what I bake then: White Chocolate Muffins, flavoured with vanilla and freshly grounded cardamom. A easy and yet so delicious treat!
