The way to a mans heart, especially my husband’s is through his stomach. So what better Father’s Day present than lots of yummy food!
First up we made some scrummy white chocolate chip muffins. Here’s how:
- 140g Self Raising Flour
- 140g Melted Dark Chocolate
- 75g Cocoa Powder
- 3tsp Baking Powder
- 1 Egg
- 200ml Milk
- 150g Broken White Chocolate
- 1tsp Vanilla Extract
- 100ml Sunflower Oil
Preheat the oven to 200c/Gas Mark 6.
Mix together the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder.
In a separate bowl mix together the oil, milk, egg and melted chocolate.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix together the the white chocolate chunks. Do not over mix the mixture.
Place into 12 muffin cases and bake for 12 mins.
Once cooked, remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
Once they were cooled I placed them into an air proof tin all ready for tomorrow.
Next up was a very simple pressie. All I did was get a couple of glass jars with screw top lids. I filled them with hubby’s favourite sweets whist number three made some gift labels with handprints.
I threaded some ribbon through the gift tags and tied them round the top of the jars.
The children love making gifts for people and I find that people always find a homemade gift far more thoughtful.
Along with their cards I am sure that is going to be one happy Daddy upon receiving the wonderful gifts.
