It's been a crazy week. I've recently spent more time in a hospital than I ever have previously, and I totally have a new-found respective for nurses. Doctors flit in and out, while nurses seem to do all of the work...no offense to my brother the doctor :) My grandpa should be released tomorrow, and then he and my step-grandma will spend a few days with us, while he recovers from this throat surgery.
When I had breakfast with my step-grandma yesterday she really wanted a muffin, but not the prepackaged type available at the hotel, so I decided to make muffins tonight. The last time I made this recipe I was attempting to make scones, but the batter was more muffin-like and I had a really hard time making scones. Here's the kicker - the batter today was perfect for scones and I have no idea why it turned out differently. I went ahead with muffins, since the pans were out and lined.
I would definitely make these again as muffins. Using a large Oxo scoop, I got fairly small muffins, just barely higher than the top of the muffin tin, and they cooked in 13 minutes. The only change I made to the allrecipes.com recipe was to use half wheat, half white flour. Now I need to hit publish on this post, because it's almost 8pm and I'm looking forward to watching Michael Scott's last episode of The Office!
