There is no success without failure

So, about a month ago, I tried to bake my first muffins using store bought muffin mix and was successful. I did it again with another type of muffin mix and it was not too bad.

Therefore, I thought....ha....Now I can try to make my own mix. Of course I did not come up with the combination of ingredients but obtained the recipe from AllRecipes.

I chose to make Oatmeal Muffin since the recipe looked easy and it is also quite healthy. I made 12 mini miffins and 7 regular size muffins.



The critique:
  • Olivia ate half of the mini muffin and threw the rest on the floor.
  • Hubby said it is like eating sponge.

*sob* *sob*......I know it needs a little more sugar but I'm not sure why the texture is spongy.

However, I'm not giving up, I will continue to bake until I get it.

I agree, keep trying. It will get better each time. My first attempts at scratch cooking were, well....I'll leave it to the imagination.
