Let me just start by saying these were delicious. It’s well known in my house if something looks ugly then it probably tastes good!
I do not excell at things that require using the same amount consistently. Meatballs, cookies, muffins all give me trouble! Next time this will be made in a loaf pan. I’ll let you know how that goes.
When this recipe says “spoon in a small amount of batter” It’s serious. Like a tiny small amount not a big fat spoon full.
Because of this I ran out of batter at 8 muffins instead of 12. I also had quite a bit extra of the sugar mixture. So I just put that on top. It did make them have a nice crunchy top but, they looked burnt. As usual I skipped the nuts.
None of this bothered the teens in my basement. They ate them right up. I try to do my backing when my son has his friends over to play RPGs. It’s at least 2 nights a week so I get lots of chances to experiment on them.
As I typed this up I noticed another thing I did wrong. I only did one layer of the nut mixture.
You can see the sad little layer here.Regardless of all the mistakes they were very good. I hope you will give them a try!
