Muffin time

March 2, 2009 at 10:53 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 4 Comments

I waste a lot of time. Like, this weekend I spent — no kidding — two hours looking for the perfect muffin recipe to solve my ever-present breakfast dilemma.

 I was envisioning wheaty but not cardboardy, moist, crisp, hot, sweet but not too sweet. And it’s nearly impossible to judge that based on a list of ingrediants and directions. This would be a risk. So I chucked multiple hours into the time-grinder while I sifted through recipes: some required too much: whole overrripe bananas — who has the patience to wait for a banana to go bad? Some were too cupcake-y. I turned them away, this is no job for you, sweetcheeks. Finally I cracked open my trusty Moosewood cookbook that I’ve had for like 10 years and found their Multigrain Muffin recipe. Kevin accompanied me on a trek to the grocery store through the sideways-blowing snow and picked up ingrediants we lacked. We added a half cup of applesauce and a half cup of crushed walnuts to the proceedings.

And friends, I have to tell you, it was worth it: wheaty but not cardboardy, moist, crisp, hot, sweet but not too sweet. This morning I packed up two of these and — abracadabra — portable breakfast.

But it is really easy to spend way too much time on muffins.
