I really enjoy baking, but somehow I married someone who doesn't like baked goods (crazy, I know). So, I don't often bake anything because, inevitably, I will eat it all myself. But thanks to some recent play dates, I've had a few opportunities to make some delicious muffins. Let me share some recipes with you.
1. Ina Garten's Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins
You cannot go wrong with the Barefoot Contessa. That is a FACT. These are made with sour cream and so nice and moist. I made so many, and ate so many. So, so many.
2. Vegan Zucchini Banana Bread muffins from The Post Punk Kitchen
I was a little sceptical. I've never done any vegan baking, and I've never been a huge fan of vegan baked goods that I've had. But these were AMAZING. So moist and so good, and I pretended like they were healthy which made me feel better about how many I ate. I did not add walnuts, as the recipe suggests, because I'm not a huge fan.
3. Moist Chocolate Muffins
This uses yogurt, so - like sour cream - they are delightfully moist. H. requested these, even though he's not big on baked goods (he just likes chocolate muffins), and he said they are the best of the recent muffins. I used vanilla yogurt (that was past its due date, even!) and it didn't harm them in any way.
Which were the best? I don't know. they are ALL great. I think I was so surprised by the vegan muffins though, that they might have been my favorite.
