Munching On Muffins....
Such lovely, fluffy and crumbly cupcake-like goodies make excellent breakfast, kids' lunch and even picnic munchies. Spruce them up with blueberries, oatmeal, dried fruits for that ultimate guilt-free snack that pairs beautifully with a steaming cup of coffee in the morning or those fancy-flavoured tea in the evening.
Muffins can be prepared in 2 ways - Creaming method & Muffin method. Personally, I prefer the latter as they are more traditionally 'muffin-like' (crumbly and has more substance unlike the more cake-like and fluffy nature of the other type). However, my kids love the cake-like muffins and fortunately, I have an excellent fluffy muffin recipe that I can play with to get as many flavours and colours possible!
