Moser’s magnificent muffins
This is the first time in my life when I have baked muffins. Actually, I am not a big fan of muffins because they were not so popular in my country until the recent years. But this recipe inspired by the World of Warcraft game completely change my mind about muffins. Here is how we prepared them on our cooking channel online.
- 1 cup Milk
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
- 1 Egg
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 1 teaspoon c
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 1 cup of rolled oats
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- Pinch of Salt
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
For the Topping:
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- Pinch of salt
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/3 cup of Brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- half a cup Rolled oats
- 1 cup confectioners’sugar
- Dash of vanilla
- Ground nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons Maple syrup
- 2 to 3 tablespoons milk
We started with cutting the beef salting it and letting it stay for a half an hour or so.
Later we diced the bacon and put in the frying pan with a tablespoon of butter cooked for about 15 minutes, then tossed in the mushrooms, onions and the tablespoon of remaining butter as well as the brown sugar. Cook it for another 15 minutes until the liquid released from the mushrooms has evaporated.
In the next phase we added gradually the flour, then the broth and a cup of red wine.
Preheat the oven to around 175C.
Mix in the ingredients in a medium bowl: milk,vinegar,applesauce,brown sugar,oul,egg and vanilla, beat it down so everything gets mixed well.
Next come the spices, stirr them well and add in the oats then baking powder and baking soda and a wee bit of salt.
Start adding the flower cup by cup, stirring well till you have a nice smooth batter.
Split the butter evenly in as much muffin cups as you can, in our case that was about 10 muffins.
Make the topping by rubbing butter into the dry ingredients till you have large pieces of butter remaining then and this on the of the muffin cups and press it gently to bond.
Lastly, bake for 25 minutes until you have a brownish top, remove from the oven and allow it to cool for several minutes.
To make the icing on the cake (in our case muffins) we combine the confectioners’sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, maple syrup, gradually adding the milk until you have a nice thick consistency and drizzle it all over the muffins and there you go… delicious sweetness!
