I thought of pancake or cupcakes, but then after checking my baking ingredients the best option is to make blueberry muffin. The process was simple and takes about 40 minutes from prepping to baking. While waiting them to be done, I continue reading stories from Wattpad.Here is the recipe that I use and some pictures. Enjoy.

Mini Pavlova

My sister and I are so into simple baking. So we decided to bake this gorgeous pavlova. Again we use the site of www.joyofbaking as guidance. It was so easy and everybody in the family loved the meringue cake together with the whipped cream and fresh fruit. I am so making this again.

In a mixer, beat 3/4 cups castor sugar and 4 egg whites
Add vanilla, vinegar and cornstarch. Beat until no sugar texture left.
Drop on the baking pan, and make well in the center
Bake for 60 minutes or until done
Let cool. The meringue can be kept in the air tight container for at least 1 week.
Prepare fruits and whipping cream
Meringue, cream and fruits on top. Done !
