Last Word in Nutmeg Muffins (from The Breakfast Book by Marion Cunningham)
2C all-purpose flour
1T(ablespoon) baking powder
1 1/2 whole nutmegs, grated
1/2 t(easpoon) salt
3/4C heavy cream
5T butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 400F. Grease the muffin tins.
Stir together with a fork the flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in a medium-size bowl, thoroughly combining the ingredients. Beat the egg well in a small bowl, then stir in the cream, milk and butter and blend well. Add the cream mixture to the flour mixture and stir only until there are no streaks of flour. Don't overmix.
Spoon batter two-thirds full into each muffin cup. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the rounded tops are lightly golden. Remove muffins from the pan, and serve warm. Or cool on a rack and store or freeze for later use; warm before serving.
'Tis the season to think about what classes to take Winter quarter. I'm up for 2 lab classes (Principles of Ecology, plus the first of the two-quarter genetics series), plus the second quarter of Biochem (thankfully not a lab class). Looks like I'll be fully scheduled at school MW, working TuTh, and sitting through two lectures Friday am before jetting to work. Now, if there will only be space left by the time my registration number comes up, four days into the process. :-P Note to self: visit the Biology department before registration starts, to get my transferred prereqs straightened out.
The mythical Maytag repairman is not only not very lonely this morning, but he insists that what's wrong with my Maytag Neptune has nothing to do with any of the parts covered by the class-action suit. Not only that, it will cost me $244.39 to fix what IS broken. I was less than sweet, pleasant, and polite. Matter of fact, I used the word "bullshit" a lot.
That, and I overslept despite setting my alarm, so I missed Biochem. Feh.
