The recipe for these muffins runs in the family for generations, passed on from grandmother to daughter, to sister-in-law, to grandson.

It is the fluffiest, most butter-y muffins I have ever tasted, and it’s suitable for any occasion, from a birthday celebration to a school function and even to a wake. I know because I brought these to all of them and never got a single complaint; well, expect the general question asking if there are any left…

You can easily double or triple the ingredients.

The ingredients ready for their transformation into muffins.

First, butter should be simmered on the stove with milk (plus vanilla extract) on the stove until the butter melts and starts to boil. This part usually is my favourite; the kitchen filled with the butter smell- the smell that represents that the magic is about to happen.

Hello there!

Then, I whisk the eggs and the sugar. Once I achieve a fluffy, creamy mass, I add the flour and baking powder. I let the flour blend in the batter before adding more.

When done, I give the batter a few whisks by hand to ensure there aren’t any flour pockets left. Only those who ever found a flour pocket could resemble to the pain...


The batter thickness is similar to that of honey, as seen in the picture.

Then, I pour it into muffin cups, about ½-3/4 of the cup size because they rise a lot in the oven.

Bye for now, see you on the other side

It takes roughly 15 minutes to bake, enough time to do the dishes and pour a cup of coffee...

I like to eat mine with a spoon of Dulce de leche poured on top... If you are reading this and you fancy making your own Dulce, jump to my recipe.
