nice muffin


I
was thinking about this post and I was going to make all kinds of Amish puns and I couldnt think of any - then I was realizing that even if I insulted the Amish they technically would never know about it since using a computer is out of bounds. So here I am with the unpolitically correct ability to poke fun and I cant think of a thing to say. "But why are you thinking of the Amish" you wonder. I am thinking of the Amish because I am a recipient of some Amish Friendship Starter and I need to pass it along. I got it from Mo and I will give Mo a couple of muffins to show my friendship appreciation.



This is not bread, as you would be led to believe, it is more like cake batter. Oh I forgot to mention that it takes ten days of bag squishing and flour adding till you can make cake.



I have some barbie muffin 'tins'



And I have some GI Joe muffin 'tins'



The barbie muffin tins didnt rise enough - these came out flatter than a nine year old. (yeee -haw - I got something politically incorrect in there)



The GI Joe muffin tins worked perfectly except the instructions clearly say not to use metal! When the Amish are hungry what is it? Famished......har har har.

What type of camera do you use? those pics are amazing! I kinda wanted to lick my monitor! :)

Bina said...

I guess that's like friendship bread? I LOVE that stuff! And man, you are so funny. Where did you get Barbie muffin pans????? Ironic how THOSE turned out flat! LOL

Harmony said...

LOL..love the Barbie and GI Joe muffin tins!

doggybloggy said...

jason: a little casio Exilim

bina: It is exactly like friendship bread - some one gave them to me they are not "barbie" they are Calphalon, though, in real life.

harmony: me too - the barbie ones are new to me so maybe I dont know how to use them right.

Spin said...

I love you Gi Joe and Barber muffin tins. hey how 'bout you send some of that my way. It should only take a couple of days in the mail....

Jenn said...

Love the muffins!! 10 days, though? Don't know if I can last that long with mixing. But I guess if you want something bad enough, all it takes is dedication.

Angry Brit said...

It is so weird that you posted this! I just got back last week from visiting friends in Salt Lake City and they were given a bag of Amish friendship cake batter. I hadn't heard of it before and then you post about it. Interesting.

Dawn said...

umm, am I the only one wondering why a grown man has barbie muffins? or am I missing something here? lol :-P

buffalodick said...

Screw the Amish- we all can cook as well as they do...

Mo Diva said...

Yay! Friendship muffins! woot! cant wait!

Jill said...

Nice Muffins made me think of something else...no the Amish.

doggybloggy said...

spin: they would be rock hard by the time they get there

jenn: I actually forgot about it and I went beyond the 10 day thing

angry: the cosmos are aligned

dawn: I feel like I need to be defensive ...LOL

buff: thats right - dang it!

mo: they are sweet and tasty...

jill: I know a nice muffin when I see one and I guess you do too...

Fun post! But I seriously need to get this pink muffin tin for my daughter. That's too cool.

jesse said...

Hahhahahahaah! You're just full of it today aren't you? Regardless, the last line actually made me LoL... forreals.

Micky-T said...

They look good. No doubt they are!
But let me tell you that Bic made Banana Nut bread this weekend and threw some in a muffin pan.
OH MY! I loved having a personel Banana Nut Muffin. (well 4 to be exact)

Jeanne said...

Which proves my theory: that it's easier to get a rise out a man than a woman. (Take that anyway you please.)

doggybloggy said...

5 star: calphalon - I am new to the rubber baking things

jesse: its too many days of having a hacking cough and then today it is gone!

micky-t: portable cakes is the way to go!

doggybloggy said...

jeanne: we criss-crossed - and a woman is deeper than any man can rise...or something like that...

Mandi said...

That was a fun post!!! You know sometimes the GI Joe is the only thing that will do!!! ha ha ha.

Poor old Barbie, with all that silicone you would have thought they would have risen beautifully.

Have a good one!!

Beth said...

now that's a muffin top I'd like to have!!!

Creative Mish said...

I've been making this for a couple of months now. I finally put my starter in the freezer... Do you sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on it???

Harmony said...

LMAO @ Jeanne...that was very good!

Anette said...

Never trust a floppy bakingtray! she said sceptically. But the GI Joe Muffins turned out very masculine and tasty!

TavoLini said...

lol--nice barbie tins!

Marjie said...

My daughter bought me some silicone bakeware for xmas, and it takes longer to cook, and doesn't seem to rise as much. I prefer my old metal and glass stuff - some of which has been with me for 30 years.

doggybloggy said...

mandi: I dont like silicone anything!

beth: wouldnt be hard to duplicate...

mish: no I didnt but I will next time

harmony: that jeanne is a hoot isnt she?

anette: I couldnt have said it better.

tavolini: yeah - real nice...LOL

marjie: exactly - I wont be buying any for myself thats for sure.

Friendship bread, I assume.. as a muffin looks terrific, did you like the taste or was it sour..

Berry Blog said...

I just got some 3+ weeks ago ( Amish Friendship bread starter) and already the house is over run with loaves.
I'm tired of it, tired of passing it off on friends...it is running my life. How do i make the starter for when I WANT to make it? somebody had to start it somewhere from scratch.
