Recipe Evaluation

This was the first time that I’ve ever baked anything in my house. I found it quite successful. The muffins tasted fantastic. It was soft and warm and definitely some of the best muffins that I have ever tasted. I shared it with my mom and dad and they enjoyed it just as much as I did. I will be making this recipe much more in the future for myself or quests that come over.

This recipe was very easy to follow. It was not complicated at all and I ran into almost more obstacles. I think that the muffins did not rise enough but it still tasted amazing so I am satisfied. Overall, I enjoyed not only eating these muffins but also the experience of cooking it.
