Big, Beautiful Muffins
I didn't call them that. It would be too audacious. Cook's Illustrated did. Or at least that was what they hope their subscribers would churn out from the oven by using the recipe.
If I were to name it, maybe I would call it Even-Cranky-Kid-Can-Do Muffin. But that would be too long, won't it? Well, that was how this recipe won my respect. Princess didn't want to go down for her usual 3-hour nap, so I was desperate to try anything to keep her out of trouble (read: biting remote controller, pretending sofas are Mount Everest, etc). I had forgetten how much we can both learn from each other when baking with Princess. I got to hear what she did during the cookery lessons in her school and she got to see how I handle the batter, which she tried to imitate.
The muffins are delicious. Nice wonder crumbs resulting from the use of yogurt. I didn't use plain yogurt but lemon-lime cheesecake yogurt instead. I just can't follow instructions! So the muffins came out with a wonderfully lemony zing to it.
Breakfast secured. Princess contented. Nice ending.
She zonked out at 9pm last night.
