I've never really baked before (except box brownies or the like) and I have to say, this was the easiest thing to make. I made the muffins, and they turned out amazing. I will hold onto this recipe. It needs no modifications!
This was amazingly simple and delicious. I made two small loafs of bread . I couldn't believe there were no eggs, I kept checking to be sure I had it right. I used self-rising flour instead of all purpose and baking powder, I do this all the time because I don't bake often and my baking powder always losses its power. I greased and floured the pans. Instead of pouring butter on top I sprinkled sugar and cinnamon mixed. It was great! Thank you so much for this recipe. It is a real keeper. Preheat oven bake 350 degrees for 1 hr.
I made muffins with this recipe, and like others found they were very easy to make, but a little on the sweet side for me (but not for my kids, of course). To be fair, I usually cut down sugar in my recipes, and I didn't this time (and I added chocolate chips to boot!). I also normally don't make all-flour muffins, and what I didn't like is that they stuck to my paper liners, so next time I might just grease and flower my pan instead. I also found the baking time was not long enough. Using a convection oven preheated to 350, which is equivalent to 375 for a non-convection oven, I started with 12 mins. They were visibly not ready so I added 3 more minutes. The toothpick came out wet after even that amount of time (15 mins). So, I added 5 more minutes and they came out perfect! What I really liked about these (as I shovel one in) is the denseness of the muffin. I will give them another try, but next time I will start with 15 minutes off the bat, grease and flour my pan instead of using liners, and cut down on the sugar and/or omit the chocolate chips. Overall, this recipe is a good base from which to experiment.
