Blackberry Mint Muffins
I know, I know. What am I doing showing my face around this blog without the carrot cake/cream cheese icing cupcakes?! Well... I didn't want the interweb to see Evan's cupcakes before Evan did. So you'll get them tomorrow. :)
I hope you didn't check in today to find a tasty blackberry mint muffin. If you did, I'm afraid you'll be sorely disappointed.
These are the only Blackberry Mint Muffins that I have and they are just not tasty.
I won't even bore you with the details of how these sad sad muffins came to be, but just know that I followed the recipe for the most part.
I can't even really put into words what is wrong with these muffins. In discussion with the roommate, I just keep saying that these muffins have nothing to recommend them. They are largely flavor-less but they still manage to pack a strong after taste. To top it all off, I had something stuck in my tooth for a minute that my roommate informed me must be a "piece of health."
The roommate tried one of these muffins and her conclusion is that the muffin tastes like an awkward mixture of many herbal teas. Specifically, she picked up on the mint, berry, and lemon teas all wrapped up in one bad muffin.
So now we have four more bad Blackberry Mint muffins in the cute bowl on the kitchen table. Maybe I'll let them stale and toss them through some windows or something.
And just in case you are really curious about what went wrong, I found the recipe here.
