Generations of children, including myself, have grown up on traditional desserts such as cakes, pastries and ice cream. There is something extremely satisfying about a meal-ender like a dessert or fruit.
In more recent years, television has seen the rise of cooking shows such as Masterchef and Man vs Child. It is no wonder then that scores of our younger generation are more comfortable tinkering around the kitchen. By extension, they have grown-up with a more varied, discerning and refined palate.
While still widely popular, ice cream is sometimes set aside for its healthier counterpart, yoghurt. In place of regular pancakes crepes have become an accepted stand-in.
This evolution of our conventional meals gave rise to cooking styles such as one known as fusion, wherein elements from different traditional culinary categories are fused creating a single dish.
Creating a fresh, never-before tasted recipe is generally the aim of fusion cuisine.
As complicated as it sounds, it is not necessarily the case. Highlighting the best of two things and combining them into a single dish can be as simple as baking a muffin.
So if you’re a mother looking to give your child something healthy to snack on or if you’re looking to serve something unique at a party or cocktail or even if you’re just looking to try something new, perhaps you could try baking a muffin salati.
A savory taste is generally associated with meats as well as fish. By infusing this into a muffin, your simple baked bread product is given that extra kick of flavor.
Muffin Salati Recipe is very simple.To bake a muffin salati, you must first decide what you would want in it to give you that unique taste. Favorites include meat like ham,bacon and sausage, fish such as salmon or even veggies like zucchini, eggplant or spinach. Cheese, eggs and even pesto sauce find their way into the mix.
Once that has been decided, preheat your oven and grease your muffin mold. Line it with the cups you wish to use. Sift the flour into a large bowl and add your preferred savory ingredients. In another bowl, whisk your basic wet ingredients like milk and eggs. Mix them both together until you are satisfied with the consistency. Gently pour the mixture into the muffin mold.
Bake for fifteen to twenty minutes. Let it stand for three (3) minutes before getting your baked goods out of the muffin mold.
Like anything, experiment with different types of flavors to see which ones suit you best.
And voila! You are one step closer to being a culinary genius in the eyes of your children, family and friends.
