Do you ever second guess yourself?

I do all the time.

It’s something I’m consciously working on. Trusting myself and these muffins were a test in that. We had some berries in the fridge that weren’t going to be eaten and with a crisper full of lemons, my very first thought was muffins.

WHAT IS SPELT FLOUR?

Spelt is an ancient whole grain, said to be more nutritious than modern grains.

I love me some spelt flour for a nice non-GMO baking alternative.

Yes, it has low levels of gluten, so it is not celiac friendly, but it is a nutritious flour option for everyone else. You won’t end up with cake-y light muffins like at Tim Horton’s and the like, they will be more dense. Personally, I like it better that way.

If I want cake, I’ll just eat freaking cake. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyways, so far so good with my muffins.

They smelled lovely baking up in the oven and I highly anticipated enjoying a fresh hot muffin with a nice cup of coffee. Which I did.

Yum.

But then … Joe tried a muffin. Dun, dun, duuuuuun.

He did not like them.

At all.

Like he had one bite and left the rest. While I tried not be offended, I also kind of struggled with my own taste. I liked them. Am I weird? Is my taste off?

Ahhhh!

So, I packed up the rest of the muffins and brought them with me to work.

I figured I’d leave them out and wait and see what happened. Much to my happy surprise, the muffins disappeared in record time by my co-workers, with the ones who missed out on them asking me if I had any more.

Phew.

I was so relieved.

Then I got to thinking. Joe is not a fan of citrus baked in anything. Actually, he only likes citrus on it’s own. Straight up and natural, like peeled orange segments. He is literally offended when people mix fruit with meat. Maybe I should have thought about my audience with my muffins and trusted my gut.

Or next time, no muffins for Joe. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. I haven’t tried it in a loaf pan but I would say bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes. Check with a toothpick test at 45 minutes in.

  1. I noticed you left out the addition of the lemon juice to the wet ingredients – I am hoping I was right to do so – they are in the oven now and hoping for the best! I was surprised at how many berries were needed (2 cups) – I hope they aren’t too mushy! ๐Ÿ™‚
