Czech muffin: is it going to survive? / Cesky muffin: prezije to?

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??>

    it tastes delicious! And if you use whole wheat flour, maybe dump a bit of white yogurt in it (or substitute kefir instead of milk), add some flaxseeds and/or oats, it’s a health-bomb 🙂

    Řekla bych, že muffin typické české chuti by byl z vanilkového bábovkového těsta, a uvnitř by byly kompotovaný třešně, višně nebo meruňky 😉 Ale určitě by se do toho nemohl dát sirup, protože ten se tady snad ani neprodává, a jestli jo, tak ho pro českou kuchyni nikdo nepoužívá.
