Mr. Geek says that "a friend of his" misheard these lyrics...uh-huh...sure.
A couple weeks ago, I decided I really wanted to bake some blueberry muffins.
That's right, folks- we've reached the stage where the smell of cooking food no longer nauseates me!
Such Sweet Muffins
adapted from Paula Deen
-2 C all-purpose flour
-2 Tbsp baking powder
-1/2 C sugar
-1 stick unsalted butter, melted
-1 egg, slightly beaten
-3/4 C milk
-1 C blueberries
spoonula, if you're fancy) until just combined- lumps are okay! Over-mixing the batter can lead to tough or chewy muffins instead of light and fluffy ones.
Funny names aside, these muffins aren't particularly sweet- hence the addition of the sugar topping. Even then, they're definitely more breakfast than dessert. I prefer my muffins hot, sliced down the middle with a swipe of butter. If you'd rather your muffin be a dessert, you can warm it up and top it with whipped cream, perhaps a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side as if it were shortcake... (Chief suggested this in the form of a craving the other night, but we didn't have vanilla ice cream. However I can attest that hot muffin + Cool Whip = amazing.)
*cough* So about that healthy eating...
Do you prefer your blueberry muffins on the sweet side or the could-be-construed-as-health-food side? Fellow moms- what are some weird things you craved during pregnancy?
