Do you remember those horrible looking muffins I did some time back? I was thinking.. was I that lousy a baker or was it the oven? I was discussing this with a girlfriend Siva a couple of weeks ago. She was saying that she does not have an oven at home and asked me for my opinion on what oven would I recommend to her.
I told her that for people like me, all I had was an el-cheepo type oven which costs no more than RM200... no fan, just heating elements. But the turnout could be like these...
So, yesterday, I decided to test my theory that sometimes an oven does maketh great cookies, muffins and cakes. I decided to try to make muffins again but this time with a slightly more expensive oven...the RM400 plus one which comes with a fan. The result was this. It is a little better than the previous batch...mmm...still far far from how a good muffin should look like....could it be due to the baker (mua)?
Didn't help even when I took a picture of the muffins under a different light haha
I see all those lovely cookies and cakes done by babe_kl. I know she is a very good baker and cook and she does have better equipment to work with. Mmm maybe one day I can get babe-kl to invite me to her place to use her kitchen. Then once and for all.. I will know what category of a baker I am :p
pssssstt... I want to claim to be able to make muffins like these lah... :)
