Today I made Butterscotch Chocolate Chunk Muffins. As I post this, I am waiting for them to cool. The recipe was modified, as always, from something I found. I used the 'Epicurious On the Go' app on my Droid phone, and searched "Chocolate Chip Muffins." What I found was a recipe for Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. Since I wanted to use the last of the butterscotch chips, I made a few substitutions. Here's how I made them:
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup milk
- 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350. I always spray my muffin pan with Bakers Joy before I insert the cupcake liners.
Mix flour, sugar, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Mix egg, melted butter and milk in a medium bowl. While mixing, I also added 1/2 cup of applesauce. The original recipe called for bananas, and I was afraid the mixture would be too dry without something as a substitute.
Stir wet mixture into dry ingredients, just until blended (do not overmix). Stir in chocolate chunks and butterscotch chips.
Bake about 32 minutes, until pale golden in color.
NOW on to my resolutions....
- Be on time, all the time.
- Be healthier.
- Spend more time with family.
- Find a job that allows me a better quality of life.
- Stop wasting time and money on things that don't matter.
- Worry less, enjoy more.
What are your resolutions? What do you hope to accomplish in the new year? Happy New Year!
