NO MUFFIN TOP! ONLY 6 WEEK MUFFINS!
I was visiting my parents recently and my 92-year old mother served a favorite treat from childhood for breakfast. We would enjoy these muffins regularly — you make the batter once, then can dip into it and bake-to-order for up to 6 weeks. At least that is the NAME of the recipe: we have never had it sit in our refrigerator for longer than 2 weeks, tops.
These are easy, yummy and not terribly bad for you (not going to lie: we cut the amount of sugar listed here in half, and they are just as delicious!)
So, whip up a batch and have the batter on hand for a quick breakfast treat, paired with a glass of cider for a snack, or enjoyed with a soup supper. Especially nice if you are working/schooling from home!
Remember: if you are wearing Storyline Collection PERFECT PANTS, you can focus on the muffins, NOT the muffin top! (OH YEAH, and they are on BOGO Special THIS MONTH, too!)
