- Maple Cayenne Muffins
- Fluffy, Sweet, Spicy
These fluffy muffins are stunning with a sweet and ever-so-slight spicy flavour that’s not too much, just enough to be thoroughly fascinating (and delicious)!
Prep time: 20 minutes, Bake time: 25-30 minutes
Makes 12 muffins
- 2 cups (304 g) all purpose flour
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper
- ¾ cup (160 g) sugar
- ¾ cup vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 3 tsp maple extract
- ½ cup milk
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Sift the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cayenne pepper in a bowl and set aside.
In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the oil and sugar together for about a minute. Add the eggs and beat at high speed for 3 minutes - until the mixture is light.
Stir in the maple syrup, maple extract and milk.
This looks (and smells) so good!
Fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture.
Pour the batter evenly into each liner. Bake the muffins for 25-30 minutes. They’re done when a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
These muffins are bold, daring, and unique and so perfectly embody the mood.
Baking can be a lot of things – it can be distracting but simple, it can be movement with focus, it can be whatever you need when you need it. Choose a recipe to fit the mood and it becomes a useful tool as well – baking to quiet the mind, to connect with your emotions, or simply baking to feel emotional. Just think of the feelings you get and the emotions you experience when baking your favourite dessert…. excitement, relief, fulfillment, joy, accomplishment.
