My sweet blogger friend, Joanne, of Applecrumbles.com was the hostess for this week's CEiMB group. I really wanted to make these muffins with her.
The DH and I have gotten hooked on Mexican Train dominoes. We play whenever we get the chance. We do not like regular dominoes, just the train ones. Tonight, we decided I would put the muffins on and he would grill some pork chops and while they were both cooking, we could get in a game or two of dominoes. You know where this is going, right? While we were playing, it did not dawn on me until too late that he had closed the door to the patio and I could not hear my beeper go off in the kitchen. When I did realize, I rushed to the kitchen only to find twelve burned bottom muffins!! I tried to salvage what I could and we ending up eating the tops of them and they were good.
Please go to Joanne's webpage and see what glorious muffins she made. I would do a remake tomorrow night, but I will be out with some friends. So here are my burned muffins. But get the recipe from Joanne's webpage and try these. Or, you can find them in Ellie Krieger's book The Food You Crave, on page 22. They are delicious and loaded with fresh Golden Delicious apple. I did leave out the pecans. And I added a little brown sugar on the top of some of mine for a streusel effect. Unfortunately, that did not add much to the burned effect! I decided to just go ahead and let you all view the burned muffins!! Bless their hearts.
