Hey, Wonkers! Five Dollar Feminist here with a recipe. Before I switched to checking Twitter and shouting profanity all day long, I used to bake a lot. I even took some food-porny pictures.
Lately, though, it’s been all adrenaline rage and no living your best life. But no more! Because Donald Trump is not the boss of me! And he’s not the boss of you, either! Shit is really, really bad, but we still gotta eat. I’m going to bake these muffins — and you go do some small thing that makes you a bit happier. RESISTANCE!
A note on measurements: MEASURING CUPS ARE FOR SUCKERS
I (used to) bake all the damn time, so I have all the baking things. You don’t need all the things, but your life will be so much easier with a kitchen scale. Do you want to find the measuring cup, fill it with milk, pour out the milk, put the measuring cup in the sink, then wash the measuring cup? Or do you want to pour 227 grams of milk into the bowl, press the tare button, and get on with the resistance? King Arthur Flour will even tell you how much everything weighs.
You’ll still need measuring spoons, though. If you have a scale precise enough to register 1/4 teaspoon of table salt, you should probably seek alternate employment.
Oatmeal Nutella RESISTANCE Muffins
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (150g)
1 cup quick oats (80g)
1/2 cup of sugar, or a little bit less if you prefer (100g)
1 tablespoon baking powder (15g)
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1 cup milk (227g)
1/4 cup vegetable oil (56g)
3-4 tablespoons Nutella (57-76g)
2 mixing bowls
12 cupcake papers
- Crank your oven up to 500˚ (475˚ convection). Yes, I’m serious!
- Line a 12-cup muffin tin with 12 cupcake papers, because Nutella is hella sticky.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder and salt.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, oil and eggs.
- Gently whisk the wet ingredients into the dry, being careful not to overbeat.
- Drop the Nutella by tablespoons into the muffin batter. Use a knife to marble the Nutella through.
- Divide the batter evenly among the liners – an ice cream scoop works best for this, but whatever, dude.
- Place in the oven and immediately drop temperature to 400˚ (375˚ convection).
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, until tops are just starting to brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
If you put a dollar in the tip jar, I’ll tell you how to make that porno cake!
