Muffin Tops and A Giveaway…….

So, I have a fun little give away today. But first, let’s talk about muffin tops.
How do you enjoy your muffins? Do you cut it up? Do you eat the top off first and then eat the rest of it? Or do you do like I do and just eat the top off and toss the rest? The top is the best part. Did you know that they have muffin top baking pans? Each cup of the muffin pan is only about a half inch deep. Cool, right?  Muffin tops are fun to make….coffee cake muffin tops, blueberry, or raspberry, like the ones I just made. You can even make big ol chocolate chip cookies, or brownies!

Raspberry Muffin Tops

3/4 stick of butter, melted
1/3 cup of milk
1 egg and 1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
1  1/2 cup AP flour
1  1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 to 2 cups of fresh raspberries or a mixture of blueberries and raspberry  (I use 2. I like a lot of berries)

Glaze: 1 cup of powdered sugar and a few drops of water or milk, whisked together. Add enough liquid to get your desired consistency.

Heat oven to 375. Grease your muffin pan with butter or spray. In a bowl, mix the room temp melted butter, eggs, milk and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder and salt and hand stir just till moistened. Gently add the berries. Scoop into your greased muffin pan. Gently spread almost to the edges. Bake for approx. 18 minutes. Test with toothpick for doneness. Allow to cool. Remove from pan, drizzle with glaze.

Now for the giveaway:

I am not a “big time” blogger YET, so I can’t give away mixers, or trips to Tahiti, but I am going to start having fun little giveaways from time to time. So, here is your chance to win your very own muffin top pan, plus a few extra tools to help you make your favorite muffins. You gotta have a big scooper thingy. You need a good wooden spoon, and how about some adorable measuring spoons?
