Say yes to muffins, lovelies, there are so many absolutely fantastic reasons to do so! I love making them, eating them, experimenting with them and I’m sure I can get you to give them a shot, too. Why say yes to muffins, you wonder? Well, let me give you a few really good reasons to consider making a batch of these treats right away!
1. They Are Easy to Make
Nice and simple – say yes to muffins because they are so incredibly easy to make! You won’t need tons of mixing bowls, a rolling pin or any of those super complicated, time consuming steps that often result in a dirty kitchen and a depressingly huge pile of dishes to teach you a lesson about what happens when you try to be creative.
2. Great for a Quick Snack
A delicious, homemade muffin is an ideal snack to have at work, something not even a child hooked on snacks and fast-food can say no to and the most perfect thing to pack for a road trip or a day on a secluded beach. No cutlery, plates or whatnot needed!
3. Great for Parties
Still wondering why to love muffins? Well, you’ll get a chance to see how great they are the moment you decide to throw and cater for your own party. Kids love them, adults love them, they’ll be easy to make and serve, and you can always decide to make a few different kinds and thus allow even the guests with special eating regiments and food allergies to enjoy the treat.
4. Easy to Experiment with
Foolproof batters aside, I always love to discover a recipe that looks like it could work great for muffins, too. I tried this great, easy recipe for a pumpkin pie the other day and the first thing I thought after eating a piece was how I’m going to use my muffin tray the next time. Give it a shot ASAP! All of your favorite, time-saving, “mix together-pour in” recipes will work like a charm!
5. Budget Friendly
Want more reasons to love muffins? Well, how about this - Because your wallet says so! A homemade muffin will look and taste just as great as a store-bought one and won’t be as nearly as pricey! Experimenting with muffins rarely requires a trip to the supermarket or some super special ingredients – if you have flour, butter and, ideally, at least one egg, you’ll be able to make them AND they’re always a fab dinner/breakfast/snack choice for when you’re low in cheese, ham, fruit, jam or chocolate and need to make do with what you have.
6. Time Saving
Plain and simple – most muffin batters can be made in advance and refrigerated until you’re ready to use them. They’ll save you a great deal of time, allowing you to have an amazing homemade treat and a tidy kitchen at the same time.
You don’t have to possess the skill of a pastry chef to enjoy perfect muffins! No need to learn the art of creating that perfect, non sticky, airy dough and, most importantly, no need to stress or rely on plan B, C or D in case something goes wrong. Just make sure you don’t burn them and you’re all covered!
