Baking # 2: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


here’s another baking experiment from last sunday. compared to the 1st one, my version of banana chocolate chip muffin is slightly wrong because…guess what? I FORGOT TO PUT THE BUTTER!!! nyahaha!

i only realized it when everything was already done, the muffins are cooling down and one of my flat mates (aka guinea pig) taste it. she asked me, “what kind of butter did you use?” and i was like, “whoat!?!? ohmygee i forgot to melt the butter!!!”

yeah, the butter is sitting pretty inside the fridge completely ignored. huhuhu! anyway, i told myself that edibility comes first and taste is secondary. hahaha. charot! i had much fun because this is easier to make than the red velvet cupcake …it’s just the missing butter. well, it taste good surprisingly though the greasy element is missing so it’s a bit dry. nevertheless, the banana and chocolate chip tandem is really nice and this will now fall pwede-na-sa-gutom. 🙂
