CHOCOLATE MUFFINS WITH CHOCOLATE DROPS RECIPE :)
- 1 3/4 cups self-raising flour
- 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup caster sugar (add more if wanted)
- 3/4 cup chocolate drops + 1/4 cup for sprinkling
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 400°F / 210°C. Put all the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, sugar, and 3/4 cup of the chocolate drops) into a large bowl. Pour all the liquid ingredients into a measuring jug. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, remembering that a lumpy batter makes the best muffins. Spoon into the prepared muffin cases. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate drops on top and then bake for 15 minutes or until the muffins are dark, risen and springy. Use a fork or toothpick to test this.

Day 17 — An art piece (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.)
I’ve posted this before, but I still think it’s very cool.
MY NEW CAMERA :)
It’s a Canon PowerShot SX120 IS. It’s a budget but quality and light DSLR camera, (or an advanced digital camera) which is what I need. Got it for NZ$322, which is quite cheap, since I’m kinda broke. I bought it ‘cos it was the cheapest camera with the largest aperture priority range and quite a large range of shutter speeds. It also has image stabilizability which is sweet :D So beware, I might start spamming this page with my amateur photography, JSYK. But I’ll make some typographies out of them too :) Photography is my passion, but I don’t really see it in my future career. But who knows, life throws unexpected surprises all the time ;)
This is MY DREAM. I will perform here, one day; as crazy as this sounds. But dreams are crazy. They’re wild. They’re impossible. All you need to do, is believe in the unbelievable, and dream in the impossible.
