Wednesday = MOPS meeting = Roxana's baking
These grab and go muffins are so pretty, the perfect size sweet treat for chit-chatting moms.
Yesterday while enjoying my afternoon tea was browsing for some (not overly) sweet treats or snacks so I can take to the meeting this morning. I did found a recipe for sweet and savory muffins (not going to provide a link) and my heart just skipped a beat. The photos were so amazing I was close to print them out and eat the paper, maybe that would calm down my sweet tooth.
No time to waste, had to make those. The recipe was calling for 24 regular size muffins, perfect. Since I only have one 12 cupcake pan I divided the recipe and thought by the time the first batch bakes I mix the second and depending on how many disappear maybe even have a 3rd batch.
Was definitely easier said than done. Although I'm 99% sure i did measure the ingredients correctly the result made me burst into tears. (needless to say the second batch turned out the same)
After I pulled myself together I knew I had to bake something from a sure thing blog.
I remembered my friend Nancy had a Nutella Banana Bread which I planned to bake this coming weekend so I can enjoy without sharing with other ~20 persons. (hope no MOPS mom is reading this)
In less than 5 minutes the batter was done, oven was already heated. Time to bake. Since I did not want to make a bread I thought grab and pop in your mouth mini muffins would be perfect. And they were.
I end up with 24 mini muffins and 5 regular size ones.
If you decide to go with these mini treats then place about 1 tablespoon in each mini muffin cup and bake at 375F for 11 minutes with the rack placed in the center of the oven.
They were so good even hubby liked them, and he doesn't like Nutella. The girls at MOPS were all wowed.
They were so light, easy to peel from the paper and tasted heavenly.
