When I was a kid, one of the things I was obsessed with clouds. I was always fascinated by how fluffy and soft they looked and my favorite day in elementary school was the day we learned all the different types of clouds – cumulus, nimbus, what was the other one, romulus? Oh wait, that’s from Star Trek.
Every time we took a family road trip, I would stare out the window and look up at those white puffs and think about how delicious they must taste. I was really into eating things that shouldn’t be eaten; in fact, I once ate grass in second grade on a dare. Sadly, since clouds were so far out of my reach, I ended up turning to the closest substitutes – whipped cream and cotton candy, which contributed to the half-dozen cavities I had growing up.
Bring on the heat wave, summer’s finally here! To be honest though, I could really do with a few more months of spring seeing as how we went from freezing cold to unbearable heat with only about 2 weeks of real spring weather in between. Is Mars inhabitable yet? Where are our space colonies with perfectly controlled temperatures??
But back to the point – these muffins. Your kitchen will be sweltering but it’s totally worth it. So turn on your A/C (or crack open a window), try not to melt, and enjoy one (or an entire plateful) or these.
