Buttermilk Maple Muffins and the Giveaway Winner

I had dreams of going to Texas and discovering amazing restaurants and out of this world food. Unfortunately, my 4 days in Texas were spent in a hotel. The entire time. I’m not trying to sound unappreciative of my hosts. They feed us a lot! I just didn’t have the time to explore like I was hoping.

It was 4 days packed with networking and productive meetings. I had a blast and really feel like I’ve made some great contacts in the industry. That’s right – I’m networking in the comic book industry. Think what you will, but I love what I do. ;)

The only down side was I got very little sleep and the trip home was a long one. So I was rushed and tired to cook on Monday bringing some healthy food back in my system. Not to mention some delicious treats too.

 

The muffins were awesome! The batter was great though (yeah, I guiltily wanted to eat it by the spoonful). They really taste like pancakes. I suggest heating them up and slathering them with butter. If you’re feeling dangerous, dip them in a little syrup too!

 

So I bet you’re wondering who won that adorable jewelry from Tasty Peach Studios? Dionne Baldwin of Try Anything Once! Congratulations!

And thanks to everyone for all the support on Facebook and Twitter and to Tasty Peach Studios for their lovely creations!

Can you tell by my color choices that I’m itching for spring?

    I got so excited I totally forgot what I was going to say about your post… :(

    That is so awesome that you’re meeting people in the comic book industry! I’m glad it was productive but I know you were hoping to explore some new culinary things. My daughter is eyeballing these muffins. She loves maple syrup and so do I.

    Glad to hear you’re getting out there and networking. I’m curious to know what you do in the comic book industry? Are you an artist? Either way, sounds like a fun industry to be a part of.
    Fantastic looking muffins… it’s like a pancake muffin. Yum!

    I cannot wait to make these muffins! I love the fact that pure maple syrup is the only sweetener!! Thanks for the recipe! (I am not overdoing the exclamation marks…I am really excited! :) )

    Who wouldn’t love a muffin that tastes just like a pancake! I have to try this as they would make a great grab-and-go for my girls in the morning.

    I love this recipe. But my pressing question is- where did you get those muffin cups? They are still so vivid even after baking. When I use colored or patterned paper liners the color and design completely fades in the oven.

      I just recently found those at AC Moore in the Wilton Cake decorating section. I may be going back to purchase more because they are rather peppy for this time of year and I did like how they looked even after the bake. My boyfriend makes fun of me because I have an entire lunch tin filled with cupcake wrappers that I pick and choose one. And in all honesty, they are three different colors because I wasn’t sure how they would turn out and I wanted to have options for the photography later if one of the colors didn’t pop. :)

    Oh, so glad you made the muffins, Kita! I’m awfully glad you liked them — and look how adorable in their jaw dropping muffin cups!

    Have a wonderful weekend and hope you’re recovered from the Texas trip :)

    You do know how to recuperate. It’s almost a pancake disguising as a muffin but the muffin is infinitely better. Your photos are always outstanding.
