Guys I burnt so many calories a couple of days ago:
A batch of nutella stuffed muffins, to be exact.
Who needs running anyway, when you can simply get a batch of muffins in the oven and leave it there, unattended for hours while you go browsing through Pinterest? Before you realize, you’ll have burned more calories than you would have did if you had been running for the same period of time.
See? Making muffins doesn’t actually make you fat. It does burn a lot of calories.
Yeah, I might have a laugh about it now, but back when this happened, it made me cry like a baby. Because you guys know I hate it when good food go to waste. And nutella-stuffed muffins are certainly filed under the “good food” category.
I have to tell you as well that this were actually my friend Laura’s birthday present. And I burned it. And then I cried. And then dad walked in and told me not to cry. “They’re not burnt” he said, “Just a bit… mmm, well, too golden and crispy yeah a bit crispy but hmm they’re ok”… and no they weren’t ok, they were as black as my soul was back then. And who wants crispy muffins anyway? I like my muffins to be soft, fluffy and spongy, but definitely not crusty, dad!!!
Luckily, I had tripled the recipe, so I had more batter and I could go on making muffins for Laura. I kept an eye on the oven while they baked so I didn’t carbonize them this time. *Pats self in the back*.
The result?? Perfectly high doomed, fluffy, tender muffins oozing with a nutella center that doesn’t sink to the bottom (hate when that happens ugh!). And they have a sugar crakled top that is to die for… heavely, these muffins are simply heavenly! I want to mention as well that I added some greek yogurt and buttermilk for extra moistness and health benefits… which obviously allows me to make the nutella center bigger, duh. I had burnt a lot of calories previously anyway… which called for eating two of these babies, right?? Just kidding here. These muffins are so huge that you won’t be able to eat more than one by yourself… and trust me, they’re terrific, but they’re gigantic. Just like the bakery ones. I love that.
I knew that I had to make nutella stuffed muffins right after I saw these lovely muffins from I Wash You Dry on Pinterest, so I went and customized my Perfect Muffin and Cake recipe, adding a dollop of nutella in the center. Seriously, that recipe makes the most perfect muffins ever, and they’re no fail, like, they always come out tall, fluffy and amazing. I love them!
I hope you guys do give these a try and love them. Now tell me: what’s your worst experience regarding ruined or burnt food? Did it make you cry?
Have a wonderful weekend!
