dan i take it you want me to get the recipe?
of course, sweetie
Nice to meat you Dr. Beaver (dam beavers! ), kdlynn (how do you pronouce that??), Mirage (hopefully not)and Karen and thanks for stopping by. Have seen your posts here and there and a bit everywhere and I take you're all very regular here - I'm honored and in most excellent company already. Now to keep Mirage happy, here's the recipe for kdlynn (and anyone else who's brave enough to try)grease a muffin tin (or similar) and preheat the oven to 180C (sorry, I don't do F)mix together in one bowl: 350g self-raising flour, 300g brown sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, pinch of cardamon, pinch of salt pinch of clove powder, 250g grated carrots, grated peel of 1 lemon, 250g ground almondsmix together in another bowl (that's the 'wet' mix): 4 eggs, 200g melted cooled (!) butter (and don't substitute, there's nothing like the real thing; juice of 1 lemonFold the two mixtures carefully together and fill into the muffin tray (or cake form etc). Bake for approx. 15-20mins (muffins) or 60-70mins (cake). Icing: if you really want to go for it: blend an equal amount of butter with castor or powdered sugar and mix together until smooth. Add grated lemon (or lemon essence; cinnamon etc.) to taste and spread on top of cooled muffins/cake.BON APPETIT! oh - and I like to pop a wee marzipan carrot on top
I actually thought I was done with messageboards .... famous last words! You've got a really interesting and nice place here. I think I'll stay a while and get to know you better.Anyone having tea and cookies? .... chocolate ones if possible...Alandriel is the name, wanderer and dabbler in all sorts of things. Forever interested in pretty much everything. A bit of a jack of all trades and a master..... well, of a few things I'd like to believe. But then I always meet someone to knows even more than I do - and that keeps the whole thing interesting .. oh yes - and I like chocolatebut then don't blame me: I'm Swiss (though sometimes I'm not so sure about that anymore....)
............voila! Help yourselves....and totally calorie and fat free PS: I do have a super recipe for real carrot cake muffins - if anyone is interested [8D] - in lieu of a whistle smiley Oh! And thanks for the warm welcome 
I never ignore anyone paul but I certainly do take most things with a large pinch of - erm, I preferr nutmeg

How long have you guys/gals been here? Some of you have a postcounts that are simply astonishing.On other boards there are memberlists with stats available but I guess not here (or at least I haven't found one). I've seen how I can access individual stats but those are limited.
