Have you ever just had the urge to be good at something that you are simply horrible at? Well, for me that is baking. I cannot bake, like, at all. I am nervous every time I come to try it, it is an art, and I am not an artist. I am too heavy handed and blasé about it all. So, this is it, I am determined to get this. By the end of the year I will be able to have at least one dish that I can bake well consistently.
So I am starting a review process. Every time I bake, I will photograph it, taste it, review it and correct my mistakes. Here are my notes.
The Attempt: Raspberry & Orange Muffins
Recipe: Hairy Bikers – https://www.hairybikers.com/recipes/view/berry-orange-muffins
Did I follow the recipe: to the letter… apart from the raspberries as I only had half of what the recipe required.
Texture: good, its made with wholemeal flour so it was a little dry
Decoration: I put a little lavender honey on the top, it didn’t look particularly glamorous but it tasted great.
Taste: nice, not sweet but more of a breakfast muffin.
Notes: the recipe is super simple and easy to follow, it doesn’t require a lot of mixing and it’s a throw it all in a bowl type of deal. They were just a little underwhelming, it defiantly needed more orange and I would like them a little sweeter as well. I also put less raspberry in than was required and found that to be more than enough. So I would put in more orange, stick with half of the raspberries and make it a bit sweeter. The recipe is great for those that struggle with breakfast in the mornings and want something on the go; they are quick and simple to make, and they are made with honey rather than sugar so they aren’t bad for calories either. Overall good recipe but I would tweak it a little.
Until next time.
