Muffins have magical powers.
Magical powers to brighten your day, that is. I honestly love muffins. I'd take a muffin over a cupcake any day, hands down. They are second only to pie in my opinion.
This week has been a huge muffin week. On Saturday, I went blueberry picking (and picked a ton! let me tell you). So, I made some blueberry muffins and brought them into work on Monday. I'm not a huge fan of blueberry muffins as I've found that they can greatly vary in goodness, but these ones were not that bad. I followed a recipe I found on Pinterest, making it vegan so I could give one to my housemate, and it worked. The muffins only went up from there.
On the course where I work, we have a lot of apple trees. Need a number? probably close to 50 if not more. There are a lot. But I've never counted them so I don't know. Many are clumped together because then the bees don't have to fly long distances to pollinate. On Monday, one of my coworkers managed to get a number of good apples down from one such tree and I took some home. Tuesday, I made Apple Cinnamon muffins.
Muffins = bliss. I was content to pause for the moment to enjoy the muffin-y goodness (and it was scrumptious!). Muffins can seriously brighten your day.
My all time favourite muffin of the summer was from last week, though. A Banana-Zucchini-Choco-Walnut. Can I hear a YUM! ?
