I’ve just finished reading a novel about a London bakery and, of course, I rushed to the kitchen to bake something sweet and yummy. 😀

Unfortunately, I couldn’t use any of the recipes included in the novel because they were packed with butter and that’s my kryptonite. I’ll try to adapt some of those recipes when I have some time, but meanwhile let’s bake one of my favourite recipes: lemon, ginger and dark chocolate muffins. Yum!
