Blueberry Muffins

I absolutely adore muffins. Tomorrow we’re having a little morning party at school with a teacher who’s leaving. I decided to bring muffins to the little shingdig and decided on blueberry! The best blueberry muffins I have ever had are actually from a box mix- Betty Crocker Wild Blueberry mix (with real blueberries!)

This mix is superior to all other mixes (in my opinion) probably because of the real blueberries. They come in a little can! They taste much better than the little dry shriveled blueberries that a lot of mixes have. So I decided to make these muffins and needed muffin tin liners. So my mom got some for me! One problem I always have when I make muffins or cupcakes is that I often make 24 of them and I only have one muffin tin. Just as I was saying “we need another muffin tin” I read that the muffin tin liners I had could apparently just be placed on a cookie sheet and the muffin batter placed inside! I decided to give this a try.

Here are the cute little liners. Apparently these are pretty high-tec. Not only can you use them without a muffin tin but the colors won’t fade when you bake them! It’s all very exciting. Well I mixed up the batter and put half the batter in the muffin liners in the tin and half of the batter in the free-standing tins. This made a lot of batter by the way. These aren’t skimpy muffins! I was worried that the muffins would overflow but they did fine when they baked.

I was a little skeptical about how this would turn out…but I really didn’t want to sit around and do the muffins in two batches (I was making a double batch of the muffins, prescription one box only makes 12). They baked for 18 minutes and turned golden brown and smelled so delicious.

Here is the final result. The muffin on the left, women’s health the more attractive and perfect one, pathopsychology was from the muffin tin. The free-standing ones turned out a little more lopsided and deformed. But that’s not really a problem because it’s still golden brown and delicious. I still want a second muffin tin but this is a good option for if you only have one. Mmm I can’t wait to eat these tomorrow morning :)

I have beenĀ fantasizingĀ about cupcakes. Making cupcakes, buy eating cupcakes. I think this is the result of having nothing to do late at night but watch food network shows (ok so i have things to do i just don’t feel like doing them).

Cupcakes really are amazing. It’s the awesomeness of cake in a little personal serving with delicious flavor combinations and cute decorations! What could be better? Uhh nothing.

I have just recently entered the world of cupcake baking. All the flavors i’ve made so far i’ve been really pleased with. They are really time consuming to make, breast though. Especially since we only have one muffin tin and none of the fancy froster thingies or injecting thingies. But it’s still fun and i love giving them to people! Who doesn’t like receiving a cupcake? Crazy people, see that’s who!

So far i’ve made chocolate cupcake with cheesecake filling and chocolate frosting (recipe courtesy of I also experimented with a nutella cupcake. I made a standard chocolate cake batter and the filling was a delicious mixture of nutella and cream cheese (a flavor combo that works really well together!). I then made this delicious chocolate frosting and added a ton of nutella and more cream cheese (can you say healthy?). It got really good reviews!

If you didn’t catch on, I LOOOVVEEE nutella. It is so amazing! In my family it’s just called Angel Poop. It truly is that good! (haha). Nutella is yummy on bagels, waffles, pancakes, toast, in cupcakes, cake, on ice cream, with strawberries, with bananas, and with any other food in the world! It really is sosososososo good!

Hazelnut Spread

My grandparents bought us (hem hem meee) these enourmous jars of nutella. Sometimes i just eat it with a spoon out of the jar. Yuum! If you’ve never had nutella go out and buy some. now. i’ll wait.

Haha so i’m done with that rant. I’ve been wanting to do a peanut butter cupcake! Doesn’t that sound amazing? I think so! Also a carrot cake cupcake. My family is a big fan of carrot cake (well everyone except for my sisters). And I love it too! My favorite part is the cream cheese frosting. Honestly i think it’s my favorite frosting in the world. Well maybe except for chocolate….it just depends.

So I will be updating about new cupcake creations- and i’ll have pictures of them for you next time!
