Yesterday I decided to whip up a batch of muffins as a trial to see if my family liked them or not. I wanted to make some for Christmas and – who doesn’t like mini muffins? Who am I kidding, I just wanted to bake some goods.
I do like how easy they came together. And the smell that wrapped my kitchen like a warm comfy blanket was more than welcomed. It got my son to stop playing video games and explore what magic was happening this time around. Cookies? Cake? Muffins? Bread? He was full of questions. I told him to turn around and look up (my cookbook was opened to the page of the recipe and there’s a picture)
He was excited, my daughter in the other hand didn’t share his feeling. She thought there was chocolate in them. No honey, those are raisins and I don’t cook mouse turds. (I don’t like raisins. I worked in a camp where Chef put them in everything- rice, pancakes, potatoes-agh just WRONG!!!) Yep, I got a questioning look from both of them. Sadly I forgot about the chocolate chips – so no chocolate either.
Anyways, I do like this recipe and I will be making it again. I never grease my muffin tins as I use liners. Normally I buy parchment paper liners, but I bought mini Xmas paper liners. So my muffins stuck to the paper and what a sad state of affair- lesson learned. Follow recipes or use parchment paper that way your muffins will be safe 🙂
