Then I found this recipe and let me just say “WINNER!” The ingredients are simpler. The recipe does not require butter but just oil which means no waiting for butter to soften. Being a “spur of the moment kinda baker” that I am, this is a WIN!
Funny story: This recipe calls for Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO). Before I put the muffins in the oven, I tasted the dough. (Licking the batter from the spoon is my newly acquideveloped while sheltering in place. Ha! Ha!) I thought that the dough tasted funny. After I baked the muffins, I could hardly wait to eat them. I thought that they tasted good except that they also tasted slightly like chicken adobo.
