Bad Oven Day (Honey Chocolate Muffin)

For some reason, my oven was misbehaving today. It burned my baking not once, but twice!

Started with the Honey Chocolate Walnut & Raisin muffins. Recipe calls for 25 minutes. I should know better than to let my guard down by not checking. Barely past 20 minutes, I smelled food burning from my oven. I rushed to my oven but was a minute too late. Half of the 6 muffins in the oven already have blackened tops. Oh darn!!! And just when I thought these muffins are going to turn out very good. *Sigh* And I was going to give one to a friend too. There goes my effort in trying to impress...
However, I did taste one of the "ok" ones. And it was what I expected all along, it was good! A combination of dark chocolate, white chocolate, walnuts and raisins, it was decadent and luxurious. A perfect muffin for autumn, if only we have autumn in Malaysia.

I was lucky that I managed to salvage some of the muffins. Look what it did to my bread next. And it was only in the oven for less than 10 minutes!

Too bad for inside was still good. Look at the nice texture inside!

My oven must have been having a bad day today...

The blackened bread does look scary but the inside looks delish :-) Soft and fluffy! No worries, I'm sure the muffin will be fab... I'll do as you say with the heating instructions. If only I'm not feeling so stuffed right now, I will be stuffing my face with your muffin instead!
