2013-11-03: I have a muffin tin I’ve never used, way more caramel sauce than we’ll get through this fall, and a three day weekend. Perfect for experimenting with muffin recipes. The original recipe called for 1 t vanilla, but since I was adding the caramel, and the caramel is already pretty strongly vanilla, I opted to omit it. As I was dividing up the batter, I was sure I could’ve easily filled 18, but went ahead and fit it all into 12, and they came out just fine.


2013-12-22: Joel commented the above ones were too moist for his taste. I also know he likes cranberries, so I picked up some dried cranberries to make another batch. I did so today — minus the caramel — and, naturally, they turned out much drier (a bit too in my opinion, but not his). They’d be better with real cranberries, so as more tart.
