Before we came on holiday we harvested what we could from our garden in England, so that it would not be wasted. Runner beans, cabbage, tomatoes, and almost a pound of blueberries. I decided to make some muffins.
They came out square because I had some muffin cases but no muffin tin. I just arranged the paper cases in an oblong roasting tin.
A nervous moment - would they rise or wouldn't they ?
The flour was a bit of a problem. The recipe called for baking powder but I couldn't find anything like it in the shops in Descartes or the village. I therefore used what I hoped was self-raising flour.
"Farine aux gâteaux" if I remember correctly.
A further problem was the weather. Nicole had warned me that in the very warm weather they might not rise properly.
All things considered, they came out quite well. Very good in fact.
QUESTION DU JOUR
Do they use baking powder in France ? If so, what is it called ?
