For the past months, besides cupcakes, I baked nothing else. And then it went quiet for awhile. After completing most part of revamping my blog. I braced myself once again to bake. The feeling to be able to bake merrily in the kitchen is overwhelming.
I haven chosen Apple Cheddar Muffins (from Muffins & Quick Bread), a quick and easy recipe to follow. (just in case, the ambience in the household changes *wink*). I haven't tried a "mixed" muffin before.
A combination of savoury and sweet muffin is new to me. Savoury because of the cheese and sweet for the apple.
With a sense of suspense, I went ahead to bake it. You know what, no regrets at all because it tasted so good. Perhaps it is because I baked it with love. *wink*
It was so good that I actually bake another batch for my neighbour right after my "taste test".
Verdict: Thumbs up.
