Ever since I started grinding our own wheat, 8 years ago, I have been searching for the perfect Muffin recipe. Mine are always a little rubbery, a little dense, and short. Not the light, fluffy, enormous muffins I am use to seeing on everyone elses blog.
Yesterday while reading The Happy Housewife’s blog, I notice a photo of a beautiful light, fluffy, enormous muffin. I’m thinking, ooo if someone with six children and one on the way, can bake a muffin like this, then so can I.
The recipe is a plain Muffin with brown sugar and cinnamon on top. 😛
I mix the dry ingredients. I add a 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the dry stuff. We like cinnamon. 🙂
I add the liquids carefully to the dry ingredients and add the mixture to the muffin tins. I do not use liners. I got tired of half of the muffins coming off with the liners. I do hate cleaning the muffins tins after baking, but I hate muffins stuck to liners more. 😀
This recipe made 9 muffins for me and they took roughly 15 minutes to bake.
Here is the best looking one out of the bunch.
It is not the beautiful, fluffy, light, enormous muffin that The Happy Housewife made. The girls ate the muffins and thought they were good; however, they would rather have chocolate chips in there too.
I have to come to the conclusion that making muffins ranks up there with pie crusts and birthday cakes. I just can’t do it. 😦 Since my girls don’t know the difference between a good muffin and a bad muffin, I’ll continue to make muffins. Pie Crusts and Birthday cakes (from scratch) well… store bought is just fine with me.
