Today's tutorial is inspired by the very magical Mickey Mouse imprint hard boiled egg I had at Tokyo Disneyland last year!
Quite a number of my friends "WoW" at the egg when I posted the photo then. So I tried to replicate it, considered successful until the last part when I peeled the egg shell while it was still hot and broke part of the egg white :/ Please peel the egg after it'd cooled down.
Ok, before it gets too lengthy, let's begin!

Recipe • No-Mixer Best Blueberry and Choc Chips Muffins

Image
Today I'm sharing a muffin recipe that's really good! Like Rachelle from Bear Naked Food said, they really are the best tasting blueberry muffins! Soft and not too sweet, the kids liked the crispy top too, thanks to the raw sugar topping! This recipe is a keeper but on my first attempt, quite a number of the muffins overflowed while baking, possibly due to over mixing.
So on second attempt I tried without using electric mixer.
Result: taste was not compromise, still as good!
