M uffins are something that I just bake anytime. There is no time or day or muhurat that I need to plan to make.. This muffin was a result of staying awake with my lil one late nite.. Lil V slept late evening.. and before I wud hit the bed ,he wakes up at 11.30pm … Oh oh…. I wud have been a bit upset generally if tat happens… But this new year , just decided for myself to get a little more patient.
Spent the next 2 hours cleaning , playing and baking this delightful muffin at 1 am .
Loosely adapted from the book 1 Mix,50 Muffins. I have altered wee bits to suit my flavours .Above all halved the amount , jsut perfect to make 6 Muffins.
