I like baking and eating all kinds of muffins.
I make them often, mainly because their preparation is relatively fast and not very complicated either.
I do not know if there are people who have never succeeded in making muffins 🙂 Personally, I have never had such a situation.
I think , regardless of their type, all muffins are quite easy to prepare.
Another thing that is really cool with these little cakes is that you can make them sweet and salty as well.
The list of fruits, supplements and even vegetables that you can use to make them is very long.
Now that we are well in the autumn season, when there aren’t too many fresh fruits, it is best to make them from pumpkin, beetroot, banana or apples. Of course, you can use frozen fruit but they do not taste the same as fresh ones.
