While the instructions are very clear, I found some of these recipes a bit too stuffy for me. But, this cookbook might come in handy if I were to make such fancy schmancy recipes.
I chose to make a Basic Muffin Recipe.Here are some of the ingredients used.The author provides variations to this recipe so I chose to make Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins by adding 3 tablespoons of poppy seeds and the zest of one lemon. The recipe only called for 1 teaspoon but I am a lemon lover so I zested the whole dang thing. While I felt the recipe and instructions were spot on, my muffins came out dry with only a slight hint of lemon which surprised me considering I zested the whole lemon.
Was it because I used lowfat instead of full fat yogurt?
Was my flour old?
Who knows. The next time I decide to make Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins, I might head over to the Internet to find an alternative recipe.
