This ain’t no piece o’cake

30 May


The cake that we promised from last week obviously did not  happen.

Instead these muffins did. Kind of like a mini cake that is not a cupcake right? Close enough.

But these muffins taste really good. Not a sweet kind of muffin but say a breakfast or snack kind of muffin.

So basically the furthest thing from cake. Unless you like cake for breakfast or snack that is…and we’re not opposed to that though.


Quick and Homey Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

From The Kitchn

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup olive oil
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk

Cinnamon Topping
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon olive oil

Heat the oven to 425°F. Grease a muffin pan, or line the wells with paper muffin cups.

Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Stir in the oats and raisins.

The line up

The Dry Ingredients

In a large measuring cup, whisk the olive oil with the egg and milk. Stir the liquid into the dry ingredients just until combined. Fill the prepared muffin cups 2/3 full with the batter.

The wet ingredients

Mix it up

Mix all the ingredients for the cinnamon topping together in a small bowl until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over the muffin batter.

Sprinkle it on top

Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan on a rack until they are cool enough to be handled. Remove from the pan and eat while warm, or let cool completely and then store in an airtight container.

Fresh from the oven!

Quick and easy. These muffins do not take long to make and we’re pretty sure you have most of the ingredients already. No extra trip to the store required. I would even say that if you wanted to make these more of a breakfast thing more oats would be completely okay. Experimenting is always okay in our books!

Until next time!
