Remember me telling you about the muffins I baked for the volleyball team on Friday? I thought you might like the recipes! Around my northern NJ town you can become a local hero merely by baking from scratch. Is it the same in your neighborhood?
Corn muffins: This recipe is fast and easy. Start checking the muffins for doneness at about the 18-minute mark or you could end up with hockey pucks instead of corn muffins.
Big Apple Muffins with Granny Smith apple pieces mixed into the batter and a combo of cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top. Yum! Keep an eye on the muffins as they are getting near “done”; you don’t want the sugar cinnamon mixture on top to burn.
I did great remembering to take the “how to” photos of this recipe. . .until I forgot to take a photo of the cinnamon sugar mix I sprinkled on top, then I forgot to take a photo of the muffins before I popped them into the oven. Oh well.
Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins. I squished the overripe bananas (which I hate the taste and smell of so please, my friends, appreciate my great personal sacrifice!), creamed together the sugar, eggs and butter, then mixed in the flour and rest of dry ingredients. At that point my arm started to get tired from all the stirring, but I hung in there since, according to my husband Mike, these are the best muffins of the bunch!
My apologies as I forgot to take photos of the end steps. Sorry!
Try a recipe or three and let me know what you think.
