Muffin Monday: Izzy Baking

"MOM let's bake" said my daughter Izzy.

It caught me by surprise since unlike my older daughter Heather who loves to bake,  Izzy would rather clean up than to cook or bake.

But last week she joined me in my journey with a group of ladies doing Muffin Monday, I think she had fun in the kitchen with me last week... well I hope so and this is why she requested for us to bake, right?  But I"m just too happy that she is with me on this journey.

So we had a baking marathon.  The whole afternoon we were baking and cooking.  One of the goodies we baked was a Coffee Cake Muffin, a recipe from Martha Stewart.  We did not tweak the recipe and we baked it as written and it is definitely good.

We brought it today to my aunt's house and my niece Madeleine, a second grader gave it a thumbs up.  Well correction two thumbs up! Kids don't lie so we know we nailed it. And yeah it was Izzy baking!

So come on  and hop on to Anuradha's Baker Street to check out the muffin posts and get the recipes.   Check out the other bakers: The Daily Palette, Mis Pensamiento Cafe Terra.Chef Pandita, Asian in America Mind Your Bees and Trees, When Adobo Met Feijoada

Muffin Monday is an initiative by Baker Street. A culinary journey of sharing a wickedly delicious muffin recipe every week. Drop in a quick line to join her on her journey to make the world smile and beat glum Monday mornings week after week. 


  1. Isn't it a wonderful recipe? Martha never disappoints ;-). I am so happy for your and Izzy! I can only imagine baking together with your mini-me. My mini-me was not interested and to this day does NOT like sweets!

    I bet the muffins were gone with a quickness!

  2. Aww... bonding with Izzy and coffee cake muffins. I'd say that's a perfect afternoon.

  3. Looks great Malou! I'm glad you and your daughter had such fun baking these delicious muffins :)

  4. Malou, this looks absolutely yummy! What fun to bake with your daughter. Those muffins she made are gorgeous! Glad to have shared this baking experience with you again. Thanks for the kind mention, too!

  5. Yay, finally got to bake with you gals. I agree, this was a great easy recipe that I didn't mind baking them twice in a row (nevermind that I made a boo-boo the first time lol). My boys helped too but only got as far as cracking the eggs (it's a start, right?) Hope you and your daughter Izzy keep baking together.

  6. Those look great! Nice baking with you this week :) So cool that your kids like baking with you!!

  7. i love the big crumbly muffin tops!! awesome malou!

  8. Ohhh...what a wonderful bonding moment! How I wish my daughters will develop the love for cooking or baking!
    Love the look of those muffins, btw! Yummy!

  9. What a great way to spend a day: cooking with your daughter. I had a blast making these muffins with my five year-old. Can't wait for next week's muffin :)

  10. You mini me may be too young yet that's why. Wait awhile and maybe the smell of baking will eventually make him stay in the kitchen with you.

    An: thanks again for a wonderful baking party. The rcipe that you picked is so good.

    Kristen: great to be doing this with you.

    Bett: I know right? Such fun. Its just crazy hectic but fun.

    Carol: oh that's a start. I miss seeing your boys. They must have grown since the last time I've seen them. Glad to have you join us.

    Alan: great to meet you. I hope we crisscross paths again next muffin Monday.

    Junia: those crunch ahh love it.

    Tina I'm sure with the rate you are cooking they will come to do it just as much as you do. Just keep cooking and keep on loving.

    Chef: its a great bonding activity right? Happy muffin Monday.

  11. Those look great and so nice that your daughter gave it a try in the kitchen with you :)
    Hope your having a great week Malou...
