All Purpose Muffin Recipe

HI! I’m ready to get back to down earth after some out of this world experimentation 😉 In that spirit, what’s more down to earth than a simple muffin.

I’ve generally avoided baking here on the Red Braised Twinkie, and for good reason. Baking is a delicious chemistry experiment. It requires precision, temperature control and skill. Yeah, I don’t have time for that….. BUT, I’ve been doing some experimentation and came up with a ridiculously simple and versatile recipe.

Let’s get cooking!
