On days where I have an extended amount of free time and want to avoid cleaning my room, I go to the kitchen and either eat my bodyweight in whatever food I can find down there OR I bake…and then eat my bodyweight in what was just made. Today was a baking day.
As I scrounged through our pantry and fridge I found some great ingredients including; icing sugar, blueberry muffin mix, pecans, whipping cream, cream cheese, eggs and milk…so I thought “why not!”
First I started with the cream cheese topping, I just eyeballed this…my tastebuds did the measuring. I added the cream cheese, sprinkled in the icing sugar and added the whipping cream as needed. Then I stirred.
After doing that I moved on to the muffins adding in 3 cups of blueberry muffin mix with 3/4 cup of milk, 2 eggs and a bunch of crushed pecans.
Once it was all added into my bowl, I wiggled my nose Bewitched style and just like that my mix was ready! I wish, my arm was tired after mixing that, I lack upper body strength.
I spooned in the mix into my cupcake pan, I decided on mini muffins because 1. Food is always amazing when its smaller than its supposed to be and 2. I couldn’t find the regular sized muffin pan. Once my mix was added I plopped (gross) a dollop of the cream cheese mix on top of each muffin and stirred it up. I cooked my muffins at 350 degrees and waited semi patiently for 17 minutes….and cleaned this horrid mess…
Finally after all that, I’m super happy to say my muffins came out subpar! They look less than perfect but they taste like magical treats for my mouth.
I probably could have made a lovely loaf but I’m glad I have a bunch of Alice in Wonderland size treats for the week now!
