Black Cherry Muffin aka Buttermilk Chocolate Muffin
This is gonna be a quick entry.. as quick as preparing this muffin.. i did it twice.. the first one i totally forgot to add sugar and after taking a bite i was like.. blahhhh.. knew something was not right.. thought i had added too much salt or maybe i didnt mix my baking soda properly.. just didnt know whats wrong with it..
Bef i had a bite.. hb and our helper Lisa took one muffin each and they gave me that look lol.. Sonia, Hairi and Naim (Hairi's childhood friend) ate it like there was nothing wrong with it.. apakah??!! hahaha
After taking pics and all that while updating my blog i realised that i had forgotten to add sugar to my batter geeeshhh.. quickly went to my pantry.. took all the ingredients out and voila.. i hv a new set of muffins in my kitchen.. Lisa took my unsweetened muffins home and I am now enjoying it with a cuppa with dear hb.
So ok.. originally the recipe calls for black cherry.. if u hv black cherries u can stick to the original recipe.. i didnt hv any and subbed with chocolate chips instead.
