My boss had told a friend that her staff would bake something for her bring-and-buy sale in aid of charity. It was nice of her to volunteer us, unfortunately I (and most of the staff) don't cook very much.
Walking through a local homestore a few days before the sale, I spotted this book and thought 'Everyone likes muffins!' I did a taste-test on my flatmates with 2 varieties (the summer berry and white choc, and the triple choc fudge-heaven on earth!), 12 of each. They were all gone in 24 hours. I live with 3 women.
The recipes are clear and easy to understand (even to a complete no-hoper like me!), with australian terminology explained at the start of the book for overseas readers. There's basic muffin recipes for the beginner and more advanced varieties for the adventurous among us. Alternative ideas are given if something in the recipe is out of season or for a different taste. The photos are fantastic, and best of all, your muffins _do_ come out of the oven looking like them!
My boss brought over everything we made on the night before the sale. She went down the following afternoon to buy some of my muffins. They'd sold about half an hour after the sale opened!!!
