Muffin Tops

Muffin Top - This new expression perfectly describes the loose fat that sticks out over a pair of low-slung jeans, as per Collins English Dictionary in the ninth edition published in June 2007.

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
2 Eggs
240ml of Milk
120ml Oil
200g Sugar
375g Flour
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
Strawberry and Choc-Chip
Choc-Chips
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.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
