Last week I wanted to bake some lemon muffins as a birthday present for my good friend Mary who I went to visit in Boston for the weekend. I planned to try a new recipe with coconut flour and baked with Catherine. The following are pictures from my lemon muffin attempt:
I had never tried this recipe before, and it didn’t state how many muffins the recipe would make, so it should have then be alarming to us that four eggs were used for 6 muffins. Key word: should. The lemon juice and lemon zest smelled so nice though!The batter was very easy to make, but I wanted at least 12 muffins, so we made another batch, and then put them in the oven.They look great, right?So how did they taste?
Let’s judge from some first bite reactions:
“You know Fiona, I usually like what you bake… But this is absolutely terrible.” -Darien
“WHAT THE **** IS THIS? *spits out*” -Lisa
“It’s… moist?” -Steven
Catherine even wanted to take 3 home with her to give to friends, but after trying one she decided not to. Wise decision, Catherine. Everyone including me thought they were disgusting except for my boyfriend and Connie. Apparently they like moist eggy muffins.
I’m sorry guys, but these were pretty terrible. I therefore regret to inform you that there will be no recipe in this post.
However, I did eat some amazing food on my weekend trip to Boston!
For Mary’s birthday dinner, we ate at her uncle’s restaurant with her family. Though I did not eat any of this sashimi, it was definitely picture worthy. A vegetarian roll with sweet potato made for me. (So filling!) Mushroom flatbread from Sip Wine Bar and Kitchen.
Delicious Belgian waffle with chocolate and strawberries from Zinneken’s. Highly recommend going there. Very cute and cozy too. Not a biased opinion by the way… okay maybe it is. (I’m half Belgian and I love Belgian food, okay?!)Cool graffiti wall and a big YES.Rahul and his new friend. ;)
It was a fun weekend! A happy birthday again to Mary, and sorry about the muffins! Hopefully my next post will have a successful recipe. Fingers crossed.
