Summer doesn't motivate me to do much. I am simply motivated to read lots and lots of books, peruse through all of my neglected magazines and although I hate to admit it, watch reality T.V.
So, when my kids ask where are the sweets, I simply say, "it's much too hot to bake". Little do they know, I am perfectly happy being a lazy bum.
When I realized I was out of syrup for my kids freshly made batter of buttermilk pancakes, I panicked. I had to think of what I could make in a jiff that still gave them the sweet factor. My kids love to eat the oh-so mediocre coffee cake or sweet roll at our local Starbucks, so this muffin seemed like the perfect solution.
These were a big hit. And, since, Julia Child's birthday is approaching (aug 15th), I choose to bake something from Baking with Julia
. Everything I have made out of this book, is simply delicious and always well received.
