Starting to get the hang of baking. This recipe was referred to as being super easy but honestly I beg to differ. This was actually one of the harder ones I’ve done simply because I had issues with putting the filling into the muffins. I ran out of batter too for the last row and overall the muffins didn’t look as pretty as previous recipes but in the end they still tasted good.
