No Time to Bake Muffins!

Hi Everyone,

This recipe is one I picked up in the ’90s whilst travelling through New England with my BFF. We stayed at a number of bed and breakfast places. One in particular made the most fabulous breakfast including these muffins each morning. So delicious I simply had to have the recipe!

In essence I should have called this post “no time to photograph” rather than “no time to bake”. Check out the photo bombing in picture above – haha!

This recipe is super simple and quick to make. It can literally take as little as 30 minutes from start to finish.
