Within two seconds of reading your post, I have decided to immediatly go and synthesize some for myself, even if it is 3:40 in the the morning.

Back in half an hour or so.

Yeah it'd be like, we're out of bananas? No big deal, I'll just synthesize some pentyl ethanoate and substitute.

(by the way - I am in fact out of bananas. I ate too many yesterday, I'll have to make muffins with something else. Maybe shredded apple or carrot.)

Almost done baking... volatile organic compounds (of the good-smelling kind) diffuse through the air, in a thermal way.

No, the insides are still sticky. Another three minutes to wait.

I used fifteen different ingredients, including shredded carrots and apples, and three kinds of grains.

The any fruit muffin mix

2 c. plain flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 tbsp. double action baking powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 egg
1 c. milk
1/4 c. salad oil

Mix. Add 3/4 to 1 cup of any kind of fruit/ nut mixture. Stir. Grease muffin pan, fill 2/3's full. Bake 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.

You can easily cut this reciepe in half, to not make as much.

I used a recipe on the back of a box of flaxseed. It's a basic muffic recipe, except you add flaxseed. I used apples and carrots, shredded, and random ingredients I thought looked interesting (almond extract, lemon juice, nutmeg).

375mL flour (250ml = 1 cup)
125mL oat bran (I substitute rolled oats)
125mL flaxseed
200mL (I think?) brown sugar
250mL apple, shredded (two small apples or one large)
250mL carrot, shredded (almost two)
2 tsp. baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
1 tsp. baking powder (calcium phosphate, starch)
2 eggs
175mL milk
1 tsp extracts of vanilla
some quantity of almond extracts (I don't know, I sort of spilled it...)
nutmeg
salt
lemon juice (to neutralize the excess baking soda I spilled)

I voted for 'love them', but must qualify that. I occassionally like to buy a box of jumbleberry or chocolate chip ones from the local store. They're quite large (about like a standard grapefruit), and great while fresh. If I had to eat a homemade one, I'd go with Hypatia's recipe. The other one has all of that health-food junk that wrecks the experience. (I might get homemade ones now, though, since the not-wife likes to cook and is very good at it.)

You don't have bananas, but you have flaxseed in your kitchen? :uhh:

I was out of bananas. Normally there are several dozen stacked up, then they disappear in a few days. Hours, if there's an exam coming up.

That's what confuses me about Americanized culture, the only foods are peanut oil and high-fructose corn syrup. Something as basic as oats or apples is a radical idea. No one could possibly eat something like that, right? Must be a health-food fad. Yup. :rolleyes:

Poppy seed muffins the best. Probably because of the morphine. :tongue:
