Where did these muffins go? Why didn't I get any? Anyway plenty of rainy days next week.

green been paste didn't really work. It went grey! No green bean cake now. Maybe red bean.

Tommy - Muffins are only good for one day~

These muffins look delicious. I definitely have to try making these! Awesome job! My fave muffins would have to be these Spice Muffins with Maple Cinnamon Frosting. Thanks for sharing!

hi! sorry for this silly question - but should the crumble be added on top of batter and bake together, or should they be added only after muffins come out of oven? thanks!
ps. i tried the vanilla cookies ytd, thank u!

Don't worry, its a perfectly legitimate question. I'm not very good with writing recipes, sometimes I miss out steps!

Anyway, add crumble before baking, always make the crumble first and put it in the fridge before u start making the muffin batter. IT may seem abit much but divide the crumble equally among the 12 muffins!
