In light of the storm, since it’s raining in not-so-sunny-anymore California, today you get a tasty muffin recipe to share with your loved ones.
To be honest, you’ll probably take one bite and decide screw my loved ones that these muffins are too good to be shared.
In fact, I altered the original recipe to yield only two large muffins, instead of five like the original makes. This is when and where your loyalties, your willpower, and your sheer greediness will be tested, my friends. To share the muffin or not to share the muffin. I’ll let you be the judge.
And for the record, I did share the other muffin. I gobbled up enjoyed my muffin with a comforting cup of coffee. Then eagerly handed the other one to my boyfriend, impatiently waiting to find out what he thought of my masterpiece.
“It’s coconut.” He remarked, with a mouth full of muffin. “You know I don’t like coconut.” He said, going in for the second bite.
And then the muffin was gone.
I rest my case.
