Sweet Sweet Saturday!
We had some friends coming over early this morning
to pick Jeff up to go to a memorial service in Boston.
I thought some nice warm muffins would be welcome on the road trip.
I didn't have muffin papers to fit my commercial tin
so I made some of my own out of parchment paper.
Just cut a square and jam it in the cup.
Looks pretty fancy huh?
A tip for making sure your muffins cook thoroughly.
Use a measuring cup, or ice cream scoop
to insure even sizing.
I butter the inside of mine to make the dough
slide out easier.
I use this little spreader to help the dough out of the scoop and in to the paper cups, also so my fingers don't get all gooey.
Ready to pop in to the oven!
My friend Leslie gave me this adorable cake testing brush.
It should last me a lifetime!
Just pull off a straw and stick it in your baked good.
I keep the tag on it so my husband won't use it to sweep up dog hair.
He likes to sweep.
Well the cake tester came out clean!
These puppies are done!
I followed Ina's Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffin recipe
as I cranked 80s and 90s music.
I love Saturdays!
