Apple Muffins مفن التفاح


I still do not have an Arabic keyboard but I could not wait to share this delicious recipe with you. 
As you know Autumn is the season for apple picking. And a new bunch of apples are sitting on our kitchen table every week. Instead of just munching on them, I decided to try some apple recipes.  I found this apple muffin recipe which with the addition of some spices turned to be just perfect.

The ingredients:

2 cups of flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix these ingredients together well. then in a separate bowl mix:

2 eggs
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup finally chopped apples ( about 3 apples )

add these wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix well for 2 minutes.
Heat the oven 375 degrees. And grease the muffin cups.
Spoon the mixture into the 12 muffin cups. Before putting the pan in the oven, sprinkle the muffins with this crumb mixture:

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbp butter
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbp flour

mix well with a fork and sprinkle the muffins and place the pan in the oven for 20 minutes. Cool on a rack before serving with coffee.

كروسان Croissant


Hello Everyone!
I still do not have an Arabic keyboard. Sorry for not posting anything this month. However, I would still like to share what I have done to this day..




I finally succeeded in making delicious croissant at home! YAY! I love these delicious flaky pastries.It took me two tries to master kneading the dough and cutting it. Plus, making them is very time consuming. Almost six hours total. But the outcome is totally worth it.

I also started working on a new quilt project and a new bag. I will be posting pictures soon.

Regards,

Housewife :)

لوحة المفاتيح My Keyboard


قبل يومين سكبت كوبا من الماء على لوحة المفاتيح . بدون قصد طبعاً...
الشيء الوحيد الذي بقي يعمل من جهازي هو الفأرة :(

جائني رب المنزل اليوم حاملاً لوحة مفاتيح غير معربة من شركة آبل. ؤصلتها بجهازي و إنتظرت و أنا حابسة أنفاسي أن يتعرف عليها الجهاز. الحمدلله تعرف عليها. و لكن برزت مشكلة أخرى و هي أن المفاتيح العربية غير معلمة. 

مضى علي و أنا أكتب هذا الموضوع نصف ساعة...
