I just don't get it. How can my kids not like muffins? I have tried every way possible to get them to eat muffins. I know it sounds crazy but I think that if they ate muffins it would be a nice quick, low impact (on the parents), and healthy thing to start their day. I have seriously tried about 20 recipes and nothing really does it for them. I have a freezer full of ones that they tried and didn't like. I guess I really need to figure out something to do with them!
Anyway yesterday instead of making muffins for my freezer I decided to take a muffin recipe and make it into a cake. Sounds like a great idea huh? Outsmart them once and for all. To no avail. Although they did eat it yesterday when they came home from school this morning for breakfast they wanted nothing to do with it!!! T. and I thought it came out great and have made a nice dent in it so it guess it wasn't all for nothing!
This was really a nice light snack cake and I am still baffled by the fact that my kids will not eat cake for breakfast???!!!
