If the Czech traditional kitchen had muffins in its repertoire, what would they look like? Well, it has to have raisins, walnuts, cinnamon, vanilla and apples….that’s kind of like the all-famous Apple Strudel! Nothing really new under the sun but if you put it in a muffin form it adds a bit of novelty to it. I also spiced it up by using molasses instead of sugar to create a bit richer taste.
So what do you think? Is it going to make it among other Czech ‘buchtas‘?
CZ: Kdyby ceska kuchyne mela ve svem repertoaru muffiny (nebo spis mafiiiiny), jake by asi bylo jeho slozeni? Mno, tak by tam musely byt samozrejme rozinky, vlaske orechy, vanilka, troska skorice a take jablicka…tedy takovy jablkovy zavin v mufinove podobe. Tedy je to neco trosku jineho, jeste kdyz ho navic posypete drobenkou. Ja jsem k tomu jeste pouzila molasses (melasa syrup??) misto cukru, aby to melo trosku netradicni a trosku obsahlejsi chut.
Tak co myslite, prezil by cesky mafiiiin mezi ostatnimi ceskymi buchtami??>
