Started out fine...
...ended in disaster in the parking lot
Seriously, you (the 10 or so people who read my blog) need to be in my pact. You know, that group of girlfriends you have that will stop you if you ever wear certain clothes after a certain age, think about calling that stupid ex-boyfriend, or bedazzle your clothes in inappropriate ways (not that there is any appropriate way to bedazzle anything)...
If I ever try to make blueberry muffins again, stop me. Really. Mr. Blueberry Muffin Man is THAT guy who is so wrong for me and just breaks my heart.
Here's the evidence:
1. Round one. Use baking soda instead of baking powder (Baking Illustrated recipe)
2. Round two. Leave them in the car in the heat to suffocate (Dorie Greenspan's recipe)
3. Round three. Spill them all over the parking lot (Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook recipe)
I get to work. First person in the parking lot. I grab my stuff and the freshly baked muffins. In that Olympic type millllllisecond, I realize the top isn't on securely...and then see them splat all over the parking lot. (Luckily, I brought my camera to work that day and captured it). And, no, dropping food on an oil stained parking lot does not qualify for the 5-second rule. These guys were trashed!
bars were fan.tas.tic. Ina's Blueberry Crumb Cake was yummy. And Everyday Food's Peach Blueberry Buckle is to die for.
Just promise me... please, please keep me away from the Blueberry Muffin!
