TWD: Citrus Currant Sunshine Muffins

Hi! This is The Boy that you've heard my mother talking about. I'm taking her place in cooking today.
Over the weekend, we made the muffins. They were easy to make. I got to use two utensils that I've never used before.

The zester:
The lemon reamer:
I liked stirring the batter. It feels good for some reason.
I didn't use currants. I used a mix of dried fruits.

When the batter was done, I got to scoop the muffins onto the tray and put them in the oven.
Then I baked them for 20 minutes. When they were golden brown, Mom took them out to cool. After they cooled, I used a mini spatula to move them to the cooling rack.
Tah dah! Muffins!
Then I bit into one! It was delicious! My sister had one, too.

Thank you to Lauryn of Bella Baker for choosing this recipe. Can't wait to make them again!

*** Little side note - I did the typing, but the words and baking are all from The Boy. He will be eight next month.

My boys loved to cook--which is a good thing. Now they are married and very helpful in the kitchen. It is fun to use tools in the kitchen. Great job. Keep cooking.
