Simple and easy vanilla muffin recipe.

Basic Vanilla Muffins

Wow! This past week have been a busy week. We were out a lot, we had guests, and..and..and.. I couldn’t post as much, and even though i have been posting every 2 days or so, i actually miss blogging already! I just really enjoy experimenting with different recipes and post those that come out amazing. And with school almost here, i am afraid that i won’t be able to post as much, i will try to post like 3 times a week. I will have to really plan everything and manage my time well.

But for now, let’s talk about muffins. These delicious vanilla-y (is that even a word?) muffins. The trick is to not overmix the batter, otherwise they will turn out dry and tough, unlike these muffins here; these are super soft and moist, and has a nice kinda crispy shell (i’d say) around it. Love it!

This is a very basic recipe, you can add in all sorts of delicious toppins; blueberries, raspberries, chocolate..

Mmm chocolate…

Uhm, anyways, these are not overly sweet, so they are perfect for breakfast (I ate it for breakfast and it was amazing ;)) Actually, they are perfect any time of the day/year.

Also, look at how moist they are! They are just..aaahh-mazing!
