Really cool! Absolutely scrumptious except for one problem: too hard to make. It took me so long to get this right. I would only suggest trying this recipe if you're professional. Read More

Only 2 ingredients.. this is amazing! I've made these muffins exactly as the recipe says 3 times and every time they turn out perfectly.. perfectly browned and crunchy on the outside and very moist on the inside. They're great when you want a really good plain muffin without the sweetness of other muffins. Read More

This is a really quick easy recipe. Note: These muffins aren't fluffy. They're pretty dense. They are tasty though. Read More

Hmm. I'm not sure about these. They are only 2 ingredients (well if u have self rising flour; of course I didn't. The sub is 1 1/2 tspns baking powder & 1/2 tspn salt per 1 cup of flour.)so I have no intention of being too critical. They did remind me of scones in appearance although not in taste (& there is actually a very similar recipe on here for ice cream scones) as they were soft and chewy on the inside. I'm wondering if it was the ice cream I used; its homemade and perhaps not even ice cream (I forgot to check what id labeled it b4 dumping it out of my container--its either ice cream or frozen yogurt) or just how they are supposed to turn out. Would be good with jelly or peanut butter--or both! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

AMAZING!!! Added a spot of milk because the batter was a bit dry--perfect little muffin to accompany a good cup of tea in the morning!! Definitely going to be making these again! Thank you for the recipe!! Read More
