Messy Muffin Morning

Hubby truly is a brave man.

On Sunday morning, he decided to make some muffins. Beaver was keen, and went to the shops with Dad to buy eggs, the only missing ingredient. Then he lost interest, so Possum and Boo Boo were the remaining two bakers. Now, Possum has done this many times and is quite the muffin maker. He knows what to do. But this was the first time for Boo Boo.

So, here is how to make apple and cinnamon muffins as demonstrated by Boo Boo.

First, you sift the flour, mix eggs and cinnamon and sugar and whatever else Daddy has put in a bowl in front of you, and mix the whole lot together.

Then you add apples - and don't forget to eat some, and then some more.

Mix it all together, and spoon into baking tray.

Then Mamma takes you in the shower to wash the flour out of your hair and the muffin mix from between your fingers, while Daddy pops the muffins in the oven. Daddy and Possum play cars while you and mum get dressed, and Beaver pretends to read a Bible (the only Bible we own is in Ogoni language and not very useful for him).

Then you eat the muffins - and need another hose down.

Hallo Boo Boo, Beaver and Possum!
Noch 4 Tage und Oma Helma und Opa Manfred sind bei Euch. Oma Helma kann sehr gut backen, und wird sicher mit Euch auch mal Plaetzschen backen.
Lecker, lecker!

I love it! Now that is how we should all make muffins. If you don't need a shower at some point you are just doing it wrong!

We had pancakes here this morning and similar mess factor ;-).
