The story behind this recipe
Little story

I like to spend nice time with my two children ( a 8 years old boy and a six years old girl).
And, most of it, I “stumble” in the kitchen. Of course, I try to gather here also my children.
Because we want diversity and tasty & fresh cookies.
We like to work as a team, and each of us has definite roles.
My little girl usually makes her pick. She decides on what we will prepare.
Then, we start on our adventure together. We very often say it’s all about magic: the softened
butter, the sieved flour, the lemon juice, the almond essence are the ‘charmed’ ingredients of our
magical muffins. The mixing process of butter and sugar is a slowly one; it needs patience, strong
arms and skilled hands. We have all of this, naturally!
Another hands will extract the lemon juice.
What a nice smell! We are on the good way; isn’t it?
The beating eggs is another process; each of them wants the same thing; to solve it, we keep in
mind who did it the last time ( it’s not too hard, because we prepare these muffins very often); we
keep on beating until a nice and bright white colour appears in front of us. Is magic, you can’t deny
it! And we made together!
I can’t put in words what a nice atmosphere is in our kitchen these moments: I love to see the smile
on their little faces, the satisfaction that they worked altogether.
My son, when he puts the mixture in the little baking cups often whispers “abracadabra! May
everything be allright!”
Many times I prepare this recipe without their precious help because I want to surprise them.
It’s a delicious, easy to made recipe and a sure ingredient of silent afternoons! Not only silent, but happy, for sure!
The muffins are always tastier when my two little wizards are with me, together in our magical lab!
