First Time Baking without a Box Mix – Buffins

22 May

I am not a baker. I think everything I’ve made has come out of a box. Tonight I adjusted a “French Breakfast Muffin” recipe I found online. The cook in me and the fact that I didn’t have everything required…changed a few things. They ended up being a little more dense than I think they would if I’d stuck to the recipe so if a biscuit, which I love, and a muffin had a baby I think that’s what these would be.

My honey is going to be the guinea pig tomorrow and try them so we’ll see what the review is!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Here’s what I used and if you want to just stick to the ingredients on the version, feel free!

  • 1 1/2 Rice Flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup Almond Milk
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons of sauteed, chopped garlic
  • 1/3 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon of Herbs de Provence
  • 1/3 cup of a mild shredded cheese, I had some Amadeus in my fridge. I think that a stronger flavored cheese would be good too.

Saute the garlic in some extra virgin olive oil, one swirl of the pan. Mix all the dry ingredients. Then add the egg, milk, garlic, butter. The batter was pretty lumpy. Again, I think that if you use regular milk it’ll be less dense.

Spoon into muffin tin. Here’s a before picture. I shredded some more cheese and sprinkled some more cheese on top.

The mixture only made 1 dozen. Bake for about 20 – 23 minutes. Here’s the finished product!

They’re sweet and savory. I think I’d reduce the sugar amount next time.

C’est si Yum!!
