Today was the first demo of the semester. I made muffins from a box. ” Why?” So you think I should be making these from scratch. I will later. This is a great way for the students to get to know who they will be working with, get familiar with their kitchen and figure out exactly how they will be graded. They all want to make the perfect product and are most eager to hear what I have to say after I taste!!
Notice that one of these muffins is really peaked!! I promise I did not overmix them. I am guessing that I put a little more batter in than I should have. The rest are rounded as they should be.
The first lab of the semester is always interesting. I have a great variety of students some of which cook everyday and others that have only had the experience of eating in a kitchen.
Will be posting pictures of tomorrow’s pieces of work!!! Until then,

seems easy to make
i think this is a healthy snack when you’re on the go !
I am forever greatful to the man or woman who invented the muffin!(:
I never knew the reason muffins peaked was because of putting too much batter into the cup.
I didin’t know that overmixing your batter would cause it to peak.
I learned that if you don’t put enough batter in the bowl thing then your muffin won’t come out as rounded as it should be.
I learned that making muffins from a box is way easier than making them from scratch and they can taste just as good!!
I learned that these muffins taste just as good as muffins made from scratch, but there a lot easier to make!
These muffins look great. I hope that we can make some this semester.
Didn’t know that if you put too much batter the muffins wouldn’t round right… I’ll make sure to remember that the next time I make them!
I learned that these muffins taste just as good as muffins made from scratch, but there a lot easier to make.!
Don’t over mix or pour to much into pan or it wont be round as it should be.
muffins are better with blueberrys then chocalate chip
muffins peak when they get overmixed.
I love blueberry muffins there are my favorite!
i learned that box muffins taste the same as home made muffins.
I would rather make them from scatch. Im sure we would learn more and definatly have more fun!
I didn’t know adding too much batter wasn’t good and it would make the muffins peak. Now I know.
i didnt know muffins could be peaked
I’ll be sure to put the right amount of batter in.
I learned that muffins from a box can taste good too!!! (:
The muffins look really good. I learned that if you put to much batter in for one muffin they wont come out as they should.
if you put more batter in one hole in the pan it will peak more than the others
Making muffins from a box are easy and simple. I like the idea of using this as a first lab.
I learned that if you over mix them, they get too big!
Well don’t those muffins look appetizing at 9:35am! they look just as good as those made from scratch if you ask me! I never knew that overmixing could result in a peaked muffin! even though thats not the case in this instance. Well to me they look perfect and i’m sure they tasted great too.
the muffins still look peaked and they are not made from scatch .
How does overmixing the batter make a muffin peak?
I did not know that overmixing the batter could cause muffins to peak. I didn’t even know peaking was a bad thing. 🙂
These muffins really look really good and they don’t look dry at all.
I learned that you should be sure you have enough batter in the muffin pan so that the muffins come out as a round shape.
I didn’t realize that overmixing the batter would make the muffins peak.
I leraned that if you use to much batter the muffins will peak
umm the muffins look good and i want some
the muffins look really good kinda how my grandma makes them. but she puts white chocolate chips in them
I knew overmixing was possible but not for muffins. and i always thought the peak was good on muffins.

i learned having too little batter will leave your muffins flat and unrounded.
the muffins look great it seems as if you had taken taken your time to make those muffins. i like the recipe, but im not a big fan of muffins they have a lot of calories.
