Amish friendship muffins

Lookie, a package from a friend of celadon cupcake! Jenn, a reader in Binghamton, NY sent these cute cupcake cups for me to try…also in the box of goodies were a pretty green basket, a vintage-style sewing needle book, mango candies, and a fantastic card. I just love the knitting silhouette…in green! Thank you so much, Jenn! So exciting to receive mail from a faraway reader…it’s nice to know that someone is reading this lil’ blog…your package is on its way too!

Of course I had to try the cupcake cups right away…Dan’s coworker had given us a starter mix for “Amish friendship bread,” where you squish the mix daily for a week then add a bunch of ingredients and make bread…so I used the extra batter for muffins. Not sure how authentic the recipe is, as it called for pudding mix powder…do the Amish eat pudding mix?

I noticed the muffin bottoms seemed a bit browner than when paper liners are used…but not sure if it was the cups or the recipe, since the loaf took nearly twice the bake time too…I’ll have to try a cupcake recipe next time…in the meantime, the cups are a very cute addition to the kitchen!
