Before you wonder why I am on about muffin tops, I baked a batch of muffins yesterday, all of which had perfect tops.
The reason I love muffins, is that there are no rules as to the flavours you can make.
I have a basic recipe which I change, depending on what I have on hand.
Muffin Top Muffins
240ml of Milk
4 tsp of Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
Preheat oven to 180°C. Muffins bake for about 25 mins.
In one bowl mix all the wet ingredients together. And in another bowl mix all sifted dry ingredients together.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and stir roughly. You must not beat until it is smooth.
The fun part of making muffins is that you can add anything to the mix after it is combined.
Last night I did the following flavours :
Strawberry and Choc-Chip
Choc Chip and Walnut
I always use paper cups in the tins - it makes cleaning the pan easier. Fill the cups and bake for 25mins.
I found some very funny expressions that have been added to the English language. They say you should learn a new word everyday, and then find a way to use it. These should prove fun -
Cankle - A thickened area between the calf and ankle in an overweight person, obscuring where one ends and the other begins.
Hairdryer Treatment - The practice of shouting at someone at close quarters in order to express one's displeasure at something he or she has done.
Budgie smugglers - Men's close-fitting swimming trunks.
