Last night, my DD reminded me that it was her day for Muffin Wednesday. Say what? Baking really?!
I feel a little back story is necessary. Way back in culinary school, I thought that I might put my art school background to good use and take the path to become a pastry chef. I enrolled in some extracurricular night classes, specializing in cake decorating. What I soon discovered was that I was too picky or type “A” to become a pastry chef. Trust me, my cakes would be beyond perfect but I would never hit the due date and many brides would be very annoyed. I also realized that measuring or weighing the ingredients was sooooo tedious. And that is because baking is really just Chemistry, so I stuck to the chef path at school. 😉
Back to the Muffin Wednesday issue. I hit the web to search for a muffin recipe that could use my extremely over ripe bananas and I wouldn’t have to make a late run out to the grocery store. I found a great recipe and of course I tweaked it.
I must toot my own horn. The muffins turned out awesome; they are moist, with an overdose of chocolate and border on a cupcake without the frosting. 😀
