Me and my big cake hole, or fingers.
What was intended as my humorous slant on all the wonderful recipes of the interweb, that - as a cooking simpleton - I skip over, ended up with me guilting myself into talking up, and taking up a challenge.
See I posted about my fairy cake protocol, an hilarious method statement for the sum total of the baking that we get up to here.
Except it was not so funny for some.
English Mum, a food writer no less, was appalled at my used of sachets. So much so she decided the blogging world needed an equal and opposite post, in the form of a step-by-step vanilla muffin guide.
I am an idiot I felt, writing the post, I should actually ditch the packs, and simply stock the standard ingredients for cakes, I suggested that I would bake said muffins, if English Mum would actually be so kind to put together the post.
And wouldn't you know it, another
fool reluctant baker, suggested we have a 'muffin-off'.
So we agreed to expose our muffins to the world wide web today, for judging by
the foodie English Mum.
Here are most of the consumables and apparatus needed to make quality vanilla muffins.
For reference, here are my normal weapons of choice.
The dry ingredients - sifted.
All mixed together and chocolate chips added.
In the oven.
Out of the oven.
Now anyone else want to take up a baking challenge?
The world needs a reluctant bakers meme like no other.
