When I saw Shabs mail, asking me whether I could do a guest post for her, I didnt have to think twice to say yes. The only problem I had was time constraint, but we were able to sort it out. So here, I'm doing a guest post for one of my favorite food blogger and also a blogger who I consider as my good friend. Though I've been blogging for almost 6 years now, I dont have a big circle of blogging friends. My PR (public relations) skill bears the grunt for this! Even otherwise as a person, I'm not the kind who has a big group of friends. I always have a small group, may be because I'm a strong believer in quality and not quantity. Ok, let me clarify something (for my own benefit, just to avoid the questioning look on my hubby's face) there are some cases in which I believe in quantity like dress, bags, shoes, baking pans, kitchen accessories…. you got the picture right ;)? Wait a minute… Did I just portray myself as a hypocrite??? Ok, I need to distract you from thinking further… Enough about me.
Well, as a person I'd describe Shabs as a warm, genuine and humble person. You can feel it the minute you start talking to her. That reminds me… I've never talked to her in person, but in today's world messaging/mailing is as good as talking to a person, right? Well, as a blogger, apart from loving the gorgeous food pictures that she posts, I also like her way of writing the recipe. She writes recipes in such detail, that there is no room for doubt for a reader. Her recipes are crisp and clear!
Thank you my dear, for giving me an opportunity to post on your lovely blog! I'd like to share the recipe of one of my favorite and comfort food of all time, plain vanilla cupcake. I consider it as a comfort food because after having a piece of plain cake everything appears to be like ” a piece of cake”! I love plain cakes in any form, be it cake, cupcake, muffin… I've seen many bloggers writing about the Hummingbird Bakery's baking book. So I got one for myself recently and this is the first recipe, I tried from the book. I'm pretty happy with the outcome, because this is how I want my Vanilla Cupcake to taste and feel.
