The Boozy Cherry Muffin
I was up early this morning (again) and decided in advance I may as well make use of the time and get my bake on. I’ve been wanting to experiment with different flavours and bought some dried cherries, but couldn’t find any Kirsch to soak them in, I went for the next best thing after all it is summer.
Pimm’s. I left the cherries to soak overnight, not sure if this will work but what the hey, Edison found 10,000 ways not to make a light bulb, hopefully it won’t take that many ways to find some combinations that work well. I will draw the line at Sardine muffins or any fish-based product.
Based on feedback by those who’ve sampled them, have all (at least in front of me) said they’ve enjoyed them. Which makes me think there’s a market for Boozy Muffins especially for stressed out colleagues and employees…
Hmmm…. Now there’s a thought…
With that in mind and after yesterday’s experience with the Diabetic Nurse, with a little creativity, I give you…
The Stud Muffin
Since I have a good recipe for a basic Muffin Batter and my experiment with the Boozy Cherry Muffin. You could simply add crushed up Viagra to each muffin! and I was thinking of some strap lines for such a creation!
- Bringing life back in to the men in your life!
- You’ll be reaching the high notes before Jeff Buckley gets to the chorus of Hallelujah and think you’ll be knocking on heaven’s door
- Handling more wood than a Canadian Lumberjack, you’ll certainly won’t be sleeping all night and sleep all day.
- A Stud Muffin a day, helps you work rest and play?
- They’ll be a lot of Knocking on Wood with one of these little beauts!
- Reaches the part that other men couldn’t reach….
I could keep on going all night with this but you get the drift!
So what do you think? Am I on to a winning idea here? Leave your comments below.
Oh, you want the recipe? Ok here goes
- 250g Plain Flour
- 175g Caster Sugar
- 2 teaspoon of baking powder
- ½ teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
- 2 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 1 Egg
- 250ml Milk
- 90g melted butter
- 80g dried cherries soaked in Pimms overnight.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add the wet stuff in and stir slowly just enough to wet the dough, spoon into tulip muffin cases, and bake for 23 minutes on 200 degrees in a pre-warmed oven.
