Aw, man, it’s all I can do not to go all Cookie Monster on the muffins I just finished baking!
I ended up making a dozen each of three kinds.
The cornmeal muffins were a basic recipe, though I added a bit of sour cream to the milk, for extra flavour.
Oatmeal muffins with a streusel topping, from the simplest recipe I found online.
Spinach and cheese muffins! I spotted a recipe online, but it used frozen spinach, which we don’t have. So I just used a basic muffin recipe, adding some of our dried spinach to the liquid mixture to reconstitute for a while, and added shredded cheese to the dry ingredients. We had some small pieces of Havarti and Old cheddar left over, so I finished off both.
The girls made supper while these were cooling, so I’m being good and waiting until after I have a meal before having any muffins.
But it is soooo tempting to have “dessert” first! 😀
Update: Taste test is done!
Spinach and cheese: I think I didn’t have enough flour or over mixed these. They were almost like a quiche in texture! Still very tasty.
Oatmeal with struedel topping: not as sweet as I expected! Nice, but of the three, these were my least favorite.
Corn meal: these were awesome. The touch of sour cream gave a surprisingly big flavour boost. Corn meal muffins are my favorite, so no surprise I liked these best!
