Little breakfast muffins... Fail...

Sometimes I have problems deciding what I would like to eat for breakfast. But few days ago it had to be something quite sweet, soft and good with a cup of coffee. So what else could it be other than muffins ? Well... I wish I made myself a sandwich...

Ingredients : 

- 1 egg
- 200g plain flour
- 100g caster sugar
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 120 ml milk
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

For this recipe you will need a muffin tin which you should grease unless you have bun paper cases.
You beat the eggs and pour in the milk and oil. In the other bowl you mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine both bowls but do not over-mix. When you pour the batter into a muffin tin or bun paper case remember to fill only 2/3 of it (the batter will grow in the oven). You're suppose to bake the muffins for 20 minutes.

This recipe was suppose to be for big muffins but because I didn't have a baking tin good enough for making them I decided to use the baking tin for small muffins. Unfortunately I completely forgot that small muffins bake faster than big ones (duh...) so as the recipe said I held them in the oven for whole 20 minutes.... As you can guess they burned. Also I didn't have bun paper cases so I just greased the tin. It probably would work if not the fact that I baked the muffins for too long. In addition to that I wanted to make my muffins in different flavours so before pouring the batter into the muffin tin I've put some dry fruits in the tin. Of course when I finished baking and tried to take the muffins out the burned fruits stayed in the muffin tin...

So, at the end of the day I ended up with burned, one flavoured muffins. It could have been worse. These were at least still edible.

I'll try to make them some other time once again. I will not repeat the mistakes I made. Now I know I have to bake them half the time, I probably should buy the bun paper cases and I will mix the fruits with the batter.

If you have any tips that could help me in learning how to make muffins share them in comments
