A week ago, Antonio cooked mini vampire muffins at school with his friends.Â As usual he came home with few pieces to show me.Â Well Iâ€™m impressed!Â They taste fantastic and I made him promise to make some for us one weekend.
Voila! These are the muffins he made last Sunday sans icing.
Moist inside, crispy on the outside.

At school they tweaked a recipe from About.Com to suite their mini muffins and decorated them with black icing. Heâ€™s a bit disappointed with their presentation though, he said they fail big time when it comes to making them pretty.
Below is the recipe he followed at home.

Recipe type: Snack
- ½ cup melted butter (room temperature)
- 2 cups standard flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- Preheat oven to 200 deg C.
- Melt a chunk of butter using the microwave. Melted butter should be ½ cup. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
- Beat eggs in a separate bowl. Then add sugar, milk and vanilla.
- Stir-in a small part of melted butter into the egg and milk mixture, little by little until finished. Make sure that butter is no longer hot enough to cook the egg.
- Add this mixture to the flour mixture. As written in the original recipe, mix it no more than 10 seconds, doesnâ€™t matter if itâ€™s lumpy, thatâ€™s perfectly OK.
- Pour batter into well-greased and floured muffin pan and bake immediately for 20 minutes.
