For the past 2 years I’ve been buying food magazines with a surprising, for my usually volatile nature, consistency, some may even call it a manic obsession or something. However, I live in a country where no large variety of food publications is available, so I cherish everything I can get my hands on.
I like to purchase every single food related magazine I see (which makes around 3 magazines per month J). And what happens is, I go through the pages in a heartbeat, and than throw it on the pile with the others, unfortunately there are already several such piles around the house.
I don’t use the recipes. Almost never, maybe only two times for two years, which is not much of a frequency. Kinda like a printed foodgawker.
So the other day I decided to put some order in my 50 kilograms worth of magazines, and maybe mark some recipes to try. When I saw the picture of these muffins I instantly fell for them, 2 minutes after I read the recipe, I was cracking the eggs, and in 30 minutes the muffins were peacefully chilling on the wire rack. They are easy, accessible and delicious, and perfect for a lazy Sunday morning.
