Eff these muffins for making me have to clean out my oven… Woke up late Saturday morning with the thought, I should cook something. While still half asleep, I look in the fridge, see some apples on the verge of going bad and start searching easy apple recipes. I come across an apple streuselmuffin recipe. Noticing that the recipe is primarily in oz, I forge on, making sleepy conversions to cups & tablespoons in my head. In my haste to get to the eating part of the program, I overfilled the muffin liners. The recipe didn’t warn me against this, but I know better. Well, post-coffee Bri knows better and I was cooking pre-coffee. I put them in the oven, set the timer & walk away.
20 minutes later, I smell something burning & go open the oven: smoke billows out! Cussing (don’t judge) I look at the muffins and they have exploded all over the oven. I am pissed. and coughing. So I clean up the tray, open the windows, turn on the ceiling fan, fan the smoke detecters & try to salvage them. FAIL. They never set up, even after 20 additional minutes, idk why, I probably mistook 4 oz for 1 cup or worse! I threw them away, fuming! Even got my boyfriend to agree with me & exclaim: “eff those muffins!” Ridiculous I know, but it made me feel better, lol!
Lets just say, next time, I’ll make coffee before making breakfast!
