Muffins are easy.
Mix, bake, no frosting.
Good for breakfast, good for snacks, good for dessert.
For that reason, when they showed up as the next Baking With Julia selection I knew I would make them. I mean, really, why skip something THAT simple.

And these were super simple. And super tasty. They are topped with part of the dry ingredients – flour, brown sugar, and shortening {and I was wondering how butter would be…..} which was kind of interesting but gave the muffins a nice crispy crust. I made 1/2 of the batter and ended up with 4 Texas Sized Muffins. They were done in about 32 minutes. Look on page 207 for the super simple recipe.
