You Know I'm Hungry, Because Here's More From The Budget Gourmand

Here's something for your sweet tooth, and it will impress any lady that is over in the morning. Just don't blame me if you tell your friends you can make these and they toss gay jokes at you for a week. Not everyone is a fan of Heinlein's statement that A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

White chocolate cranberry muffins.


    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 cup sugar
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 eggs
    1-1/3 cups buttermilk
    1/2 cup butter, melted
    1 cup dried cranberries
    2 ounces white baking chocolate, grated
    1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
    4 to 5 teaspoons cranberry juice


    In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, buttermilk and butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in cranberries and chocolate.
    Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
    In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar and enough cranberry juice to achieve drizzling consistency. Drizzle over muffins. Yield: 15 muffins.

There you  have it, sweet, tasty and you get plenty of them, a great little recipe if I do say so myself, and I do. I really, really do... where is that muffin tray....
