I’m not sure what it is about mini muffins, but Anna cannot keep her hands off of them. It doesn’t matter what I put in them or how often I make them, they are her absolute favorite. So when it came time to make her some snacks for camp, the first thing she asked for was muffins. Mini blueberry muffins to be precise.
Never one to refuse her requests for cooking together, I added muffin making to our #the100dayproject list for the week.
When it came time to make the muffins, Anna asked to take the lead, meaning she wanted to do everything by herself … except crack the eggs. Apparently that makes her hands too dirty and she didn’t feel like washing them again. So she measured the ingredients, used the hand mixer all by herself, and even folded in the blueberries with ease while I cracked the eggs and got my hands dirty.
I also got to sit back and watch her do her thing, which makes my heart so darn happy. I seriously love how cooking helps her feel a sense of pride and independence.
I have to say that my favorite part about making mini muffins is how quickly they cook compared to regular sized muffins. 12 minutes and they are ready to come out of the oven. 15 minutes total until we can pop them in our mouths.
We were both happy with the results of our baking efforts and may or may not have eaten a combined total of 10 muffins the minute the were cool enough to eat (most of which was not by me, by the way). Fingers crossed we actually have a few left for her snack tomorrow when camp starts. ?
