The perfect muffins

One fine day my sister got bitten by the baking bug so she baked these muffins. I wanted appropriate sunlight to take good pictures of them. The days went by but it seems the sun just refused to shine with all its intensity on purpose.

Today was yet another day of this nature until it dawned upon me that the sunlight might never be the way I want it to be and by waiting any further there might not be any muffins left at all to shoot considering the speed at which they were being consumed.

There is no point in waiting for the 'perfect light' or a 'perfect moment' in life. We have to grab whatever is available to us right now and make the most out of it. So I finally shot the muffins.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 cup milk

1/3rd cup vegetable oil

1 egg

2 cups flour

1/2 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Grease muffin tray with oil or line with paper cups. Its always a good idea to use paper cups as it saves you the trouble of washing the muffin tray later.

Preheat oven to 400ºF/205ºC. Beat milk, oil and egg. Add sugar and beat.

In a separate bowl mix flour, salt and baking powder. Add to above mixture and beat well till smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.

Divide batter equally among muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes.

This recipe makes 12 muffins. Original recipe can be found here.
