Sunday morning baking in jammies

Sunday morning, 6.15 am. A powerful knock on the bedroom door and two little men are jumping on the bed yelling excitedly "Time to get up, it's bright outside". The Irish man isn't fully functional yet, so I hop out of bed following my godson and his older brother into the living room. It's early that's true but I love having them over night.


So what to do at this hour on a Sunday when the weather makes no effort at all to lure you outside?
Baking chocolate and coke muffins in your jammies of course. The delight on the little man's face when we measured out some coke to put into the cakes alone was worth getting up for. In the meantime the big man went back to sleep while the kitchen turned into a hub of activity.


There was measuring, stirring and pouring and plenty of tasting to make sure all the ingredients were alright.




Time to put everything into the oven. And after a wait way too long for little people it was eventually time to put on the decorations. A job which
requires a lot of concentration and complete

And finally the best part: Munching away. Two little lads and one big lad, who had suddenly reappeared out of the blue, were wolfing down chocolate cake for breakfast. It's great to be a godmother as you don't have to worry whether this is a suitable breakfast choice.
