Easy Muffins

I saw this recipe today on a fellow kitchen bloggers site. I thought when I saw it "thats really simple sounding!" I just happened to have the ingredients... so I baked these.

My thoughts on the recipe:
A bit blan... but with a dash of butter on top of the muffins these tasted great. (Butter rocks!)They would be good with chicken or breakfast dish. It reminded me of a biscuit or corn bread.
The one thing I did do differently though is used "French Vanilla Ice Cream" instead of regular Vanilla...
So maybe thats why mine were different.
Any how give it a try if you want some easy muffins :-)

1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
2 cups self-rising flour, sifted

Preheat oven to 350. Blend ice cream and flour until flour is moistened and a lumpy batter forms. Fill 10 greased muffin cups about 3/4 full. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into muffin comes out dry.

Recipe works well with any creamy ice cream, ie, no ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby or the like.


This is a photo of my results -

Ice cream is a precious commodity in this household. I can't bring myself to make muffins from it. Maybe if we get a flavor we don't like, like one that is too chocolatey (that does exist in our vocabulary) then it might work well.

yea dont waste your ice cream if you love it. :-) im not a huge ice cream fan.. we had left over ice cream from when my parents visisted... it was just sitting there going bad. So I figured id use it up.
I only like ice cream every once and a while... and it has to be with something... a cone or ice cream sandwich... never alone. :-)
