It's baking day! Yeah! I love baking with Ethan. Today we tried out some Mystery Muffins. Ethan was super excited about the mystery part.
Sift together 1.5 cups flour, 2 tsp baking powder and 1/4tsp salt.
In a large bowl, blend 5 tbsp butter, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 egg.
Add flour mixture to the butter mixture in stages, alternating with 1/2 cup milk.
Fill the cups halfway with batter. Add a teaspoon of the "mystery" ingredient and cover with more batter.
Bake for 20 minutes at 350F.
So what's this mystery ingredient you ask? Well Ethan and I decided to have some fun. In one quarter of the cupcakes we stuck in a strawberry. Another 1/4 was raspberries, 1/4 Smarties and the last 1/4 cream cheese!
