Muffins coming out of my ears!

That's the remark from one of the students when they came for a full hands-on Muffin baking class with me last Saturday.

They mix, fold and baked 3 flavours of cupcakes on their own. And they had to sample their own and their course-mates' version to give each other encouragement and review how they could improve better.

They also had to taste mine!

There was no magic in making that perfect fluffy, puffy muffin. No electric mixers or fancy equipment. Just a bowl, a wooden spatula, some measuring cups or a digital scale and a basic Convection oven!

Look at them in action..and yes, we had a Gentleman who joined us. He's awfully quiet at first. A thorn among the roses. Over time, the ladies teased him and he open up quite a bit. Overall, we all had fun. Eating muffins and sharing tips and reviews.

I taught them 3 flavours : 1 Savory which was the Cheese and Bacon Muffins, 2 sweet : Ice Cream muffins and Cranberry and Buttermilk muffins.

While waiting for the muffins to bake, we also talk about Roasting turkeys for Christmas. That's more like what I like to do for the family.Mine are all meat eaters, no bakes or pastries.

The next muffin class will probably happen in January 2010.
