Strawberry Black Tea infused Chocolate Ganache Cupcake

Despite being under the weather recently, with a congested nose, head pounding and aching, tissues lying everywhere, I couldn't stop thinking about my all time favourite crave. It's official, my obsession towards cupcake is back. Yep, so bad so that I have been churning batches of cupcakes after cupcakes the past few weeks. Primarily to cater to orders from friends who are so kind  to support me to grow my tiny business. On the other side, I had some fun too in the kitchen; although sweating my butt out, standing for hours, and covered all over in flour & butter cream; I got round to revisiting some old basic recipes where I started putting new spin to them.

Today, I would love to share with you on my love towards pretty looking treats and why I adore small packages. C-U-P-C-A-K-E-S; how much I adore thee. Small, dainty, perfect bite sizes and if you dream it, you could certainly make them in power packed flavours to tantalize those taste buds which are forever waiting to be teased. Strawberry & Chocolate pairing, a great combination has always believed to be an aphrodisiac. What about Black Tea? Surprisingly, they worked out quite well. Alas came STRAWBERRY  BLACK TEA infused CHOCOLATE GANACHE CUPCAKE.

Peach & Blueberry Crumble

Over the weekend, I was busy pinning away ideas on another one of my favourite stone-fruit; PEACHES. Only on rare occasions that I get to work with them since it's so crazy expensive when sold here in our local supermarkets. Let me tell you how it all began. Growing up, I had endless fascinations over this juicy sweet golden orbs, almost like gold nuggets to me. They were always cans and cans of peaches stacked up in the pantry. The brand imprinted in my memory till this very day is by this company called S&M. If you haven't had them before, you have no idea what you're missing out on.

Anyways, moving along.. I could still remember, that the simplest pleasure was just serving this can of peach with a generous scoop of creamy smooth good old vanilla ice-cream.  Imagine, scooping a mouth full of cold ice-cream with a slice of peach .. mMMMmmm.. good right? Till this very day, I still find myself swooning over this simple luxurious treat.

However this time, instead of just enjoying my simple pleasure in life, I decided that I am going to take it up a notch and make a crumble. Not just any crumble, it had to be PEACH & BLUEBERRY CRUMBLE with slight variation of course and with FRESH Peaches. Simple, light and packed with all the natural goodness!
