When I was going through my cupboard and found this mix for muffins. I’m honestly not sure where it came from, but I noticed a muffin mix that was in a plastic tube, instead of the usual box. I pulled it down, and after reading the instructions decided I might as well make them. I have no idea if they are going to be any good but I made them anyway.
The instructions are as follows:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Shake well for 15 seconds
- Add 1/2 cup of water
- Shake well for 60 seconds
- Pour into cupcake pan (that has either been sprayed or has liners)
- Bake for 15-17 minutes
This entire thing took me 20 minutes, tops, and most of that time I was off doing other things while they were baking. Now, while I was pouring batter out of this plastic tube and into my pan I thought about this process. Sure it was quick, and easy, but was it really something I wanted to do all of the time? Part of the reason I love baking so much is because it’s fun to do the process start to finish. Not to mention, I feel like I’m cheating. Pouring water, and shaking, does not constitute baking in my mind.
I’ll be giving these to my sorority sisters when I see some of them tomorrow. I figure if they’re bad, they can just not eat them and I don’t be upset about it. I might try one first, just to make sure. I’ll keep you posted 🙂
UPDATE: so these actually turned out to be pretty good. And I saw the mix at Walmart the other day! Definitely worth it for some quick muffins 🙂
