Happy Sunday: The ultimate way to enjoy your Sunday!

Sunday is a great day believe it or not! Yes it's the end of the weekend but it's the start of a whole new week and, for some, a day or rest. I personally love to spend my Sundays pampering myself and preparing for the week ahead. So, do not dispare! Each Sunday I will share some tips with you so you to can enjoy yourself and have a happy Sunday!

 Sunday's Saviours:

Homemade Original Pink Lemonade:

  • 1 glass of water
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Sugar to taste
  • Half a glass of cranberry juice
  • Mint leaves (optional)
In a saucepan (yes really!) add your glass of water and your sugar. Stir until all sugar is disolved then add the lemon juice and cranberry juice. Take off the heat and wait for this to cool. Serve in a tall glass with ice and mint leaves. Yum!

Dreamy Easy Cupcakes With Ganache:

To make the sponge: Weigh out two eggs and add the exact same amount of sugar, butter and self raising flour. Add to this 4 tablespoons of coa coa powder.
  • Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees
  •  First cream together the butter and sugar then add the eggs and mix again
  • Add the flour and coa coa powder by sifting a bit at a time and mixing
  • Place into a cupcake tray then in the oven
  • They should be ready in half an hour or if you can poke a knife in the middle and it comes out clean
For the Ganache: You will need a 230g bar of chocolate and 1 cup of double cream.
  • Cut up your bar of chocolate into fine pieces and place in a large bowl
  • Bring the cream to the boil whilst stirring then take off the heat and add to the bowl of chopped chocolate
  • Stir until smooth and glossy
  • Leave to cool- the longer you leave ganache the firmer it will become

Now it's time to relax and give yourself a manicure! I hope this brightened up your Sunday!
