I don’t usually post bad recipes unless it’s something that’s out there in public where someone else might bake it and be as disappointed as I was. (Like the chocolate chip cookie recipe on most bags of chocolate chips- these never turn out right, I don’t get it!) But in this case, this was my own bad recipe based on classic muffin recipes. I’m posting it because Teno liked them and on top of being a place where I get to feel important for a few minutes every day, this is also where I store recipes. I tried to have a binder, but I’m too lazy for that. I need the Internet. Anyway, these are really bland…although they have a nice texture. So maybe you can find a way to tweak it or just straight up use chocolate chips instead of berries or something. I think if I’d used a banana instead of egg these would have had more flavor and Teno would have liked them even more.

Anyway, to make these bad muffins you’ll need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp dried orange zest (or 1 tsp fresh grated)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 & 1/3 cup frozen berries
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Then you:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and grease your muffin pans.
  2. Whisk the dry ingredients in a medium bowl and create a well in the center.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, whisk the wet ingredients (not the berries.)
  4. Mix the wet into the dry just until they’re combined.
  5. Then fold in the berries.
  6. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full and bake 15-20 minutes.

These might be better with something going on upstairs- like some course sugar sprinkled on before baking or even a strudel topping. But they were for a baby, so I didn’t go nuts on the sugar.
