Nothing makes a cheerful morning like the smell of fresh muffins baking in the kitchen. (p. 17)
Nothing makes anytime of day more cheerful than the smell of fresh muffins baking. (Chez Bonneau)
I needed to cheer up a little girl who spent all weekend lying in bed feeling bad and missed a day of school on doctor’s orders. So, as soon as I got home….. You guessed it! I popped into the kitchen to pop something wonderful into the oven. Well, it was really what popped out of the oven that was the wonderful part.
Of course, I get to do all the gooey stuff that I enjoy so much. Following authors’ orders, I mixed this one by hand (that is – by hand with a gigantic fouette in it).
I was wondering during my very brief stirring of this mixture, why this recipe needed so little mixing and was even allowed to be lumpy like pancake batter. That’s OK. I am the last one to want tough pastries. After the basic mix up, I got to fold in the blueberries – 2 cups of plump blueberries.
NOTE: The recipe asked for 1.5 cups of blueberries, but I didn’t want 1/2 cup of blueberries on hand to go bad in the fridge, so I just added the extra – contrary to authors’ orders. By the way, the small plastic containers most often used for selling blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries in Doha, contain 1 cup of fruit.

Dear friends. I realize that some of my measuring habits would not be conducive to turning a profit as a baker — Ain’t that sweet?!

The surprise muffin was a fantastic treat this morning! Opening the beautiful muffin box was almost as much fun as eating the muffin…
I’m sure that home baking will never give any profit but surely a lot of joy! Keep baking!
