Can it be true?? There are such muffins? Haha.

Ever since I had some delectable cinnamon raisin loaf over the weekend, the kind where the bread is soft with raisins scattered in between, and a crusty layer of delicious cinnamon sugar scattered on top of the loaf. It was even better when I toasted it and spread a generous layer of butter over the hot toast. Yum!

I spent this morning scrounging the internet for a decent recipe that would recreate that vision again. Alas, the ones I came across were a cinnamon swirl bread. That can’t do! I almost turned to using a 湯種 (water roux) to make the bread but I knew the effect just wouldn’t be the same. Bah. Guess I can only be satisfied with a muffin.

I came across a picture of some really awesome looking muffins, with the right kind of crumble on the top. mmM..any kind of muffin with a crumble is my kind of muffin. How can anyone resist a mix of flour, brown sugar, rolled oats and butter on top of a muffin?? Hahha. I am such an easy person to please. Make it nice and crispy thankyouverymuch. So I clicked on the magic link and was led to this recipe for it. Ollie loves it, especially the top of the muffin *grumbles*.

It is not very sweet despite the amount of sugar I added, and it is somewhat crumbly in my opinion. That is the only downside to it, it does make eating it a little messy. I only had 1/2 cup of wholemeal flour, so I substituted the other half with all purpose flour and that seemed to work fine as well. Now we have this sweet treat for breakfast and snacks for the next couple of days. Sure as hell will save me paying for another loaf of bread that we wouldn’t want to eat over the weekend. =D
