Is there really anything better than cake for breakfast? Not too long ago, I was hosting a private cooking class for a deliciously delightful family. I had sent over the proposed menu for the meal, and received a reply back requesting we have strawberry muffins for dessert.
Of course I responded by asking who the heckles has muffins for dessert after dinner? Given that I plan my menus for classes to function as complete, I explained that a muffin for dessert was absolutely ridiculous and then realized that a muffin for dessert was about as silly as cake for breakfast. Which meant there is always a way to make it happen.
And so I did what any great cooking teacher would never do, and that was to make up a strawberry muffin recipe while sitting at my computer and test it for the first time with real live paying guests making it. I figured that if it didn’t work, the last place fingers would be pointed would be in my direction.
The goal for this muffin/cake recipe was to keep it as low glycemic as possible while still utilizing some seasonal goodies. I also needed a vegan option for my assistant to enjoy and as per usual, my recipe for strawberry muffins was pure brilliance, everyone loved and it was the highlight of the meal… as dessert should be!
