What am I? A One-Woman Bakery?.
I can hear you from here; you're saying "Another muffin? C'mon, Stephanie...you're in a rut!".
Another breakfast treat for Matt, and another recipe from this book; Chocolate (Mini) Chip Muffins.
Such a simple muffin; dry ingredients, wet ingredients, chips. Seriously. So easy.
While baking, I could smell the vanilla...and the chocolate...sigh.
Matt loved them, and jokingly suggested I not share them with Alex. As it turned out, Alex thought the muffins only 'alright', and didn't finish his (ok; they're huge, so I refuse to take it personally). Which leaves four more for Matt!
When I bought the Williams-Sonoma book, I also ordered a second muffin cookbook, 500 Best Muffin Recipes, which has been disappointingly boring. The book is bereft of pictures (always a seller for me), and the majority of the recipes are...gasp...healthy.
If I were baking for myself, that would be fine. As it is, I'm baking muffins for Matt. And he likes his cheese and bacon and chocolate and sugar.
So, while the W-S book may be smaller, and contain fewer recipes, I'm getting a lot more use out of it than the 500 book.
You never can tell, eh?
