Baking with Dorie: Coffee Break Muffins
Many thanks to Grapefruit of Needful Things for choosing this recipe from Baking from My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan for our BWD bake this week!
Honestly, it was a lazy Sunday afternoon for me yesterday - the gloomy, rainy weather did not motivate me to get up from the couch to prepare a batch of muffins. But I'm so glad I did! It took just a few minutes to put everything together and it came out beautifully from the oven 18 minutes later! And I'm happy to announce that it became my dinner (still on the couch) with a tall mug of Earl Grey tea. Bliss!
The muffins were moist - instead of 1 cup of strong coffee in the batch, mine was 1/2 cup of really strong coffee and 1/2 cup of evaporated milk. And I added 3/4 cups of chocolate chips for some texture and I can't be happier with the additions I made.
Do check out other BWD blogs here! The recipe is from page 15 of Baking from My Home to Yours and on Grapefruit's blog.
