Show & Tell: Muffins Are Cute Too

27 Jun

I was recently on a hunt on google for something to do with muffins. I can’t remember exactly what I was searching for, but that’s not important. What I did find was that if you type ‘muffins are’ into google it auto populates with the expression ‘muffins are just ugly cupcakes’!

I just couldn’t let that slide. As a baker, I believe all baked goods deserve equal oppertunities. I know that cup cakes have been all in vogue for the last little while. In fact that craze is still going strong up here in Canada (we are a little behind). And I think it’s only fair that we give muffins their own fair shake at inducing little moments filled to the brim with cuteness.

All it takes is a little creativity on our part. That and a pop-over pan and some fondant.

There is my favorite recipe for Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. This is from a book I’ve been carting around with me since I was a kid. This recipe is one of Luke’s more frequent requests. Of course I’ve¬†tweaked¬†the recipe here and there over the years.

Fill up the pop-over pans to the top. About 1/2 a cup.

Bake them off and they turn out the perfect shape to add cute little fondant accents to.

I dare anyone who sees these to ever say that muffins are just ugly cupcakes.
