So I decided instead of running, I would bake muffins...again. Only this time, I would not consider this batch to be even remotely healthy. Honestly, they really weren't muffins, more like cupcakes without icing.
**The picture above is most definitely NOT something I made, but more so a technique I thought was super cool and relevant to this past weekend's festivities. Maybe I'll try that sometime.** Image found here
I had a box of devils food chocolate cake mix floating around so I whipped that together with ease (eggs, vegetable oil- directions and ingredients on the box) I had considered subbing the vegetable oil with apple sauce? or something? but opted out since I was going for taste and not so much the health factor. Of course, accessorizing became the key factor; I chopped up some sliced almonds, chunks of chocolate that would surely melt into mushy chocolate morsels throughout the cupcake and bananas. In retrospect, the banana pieces were not necessary but they tasted fine.
I drizzled some homemade caramel on top for added crispiness and voila! Le Dessert! I still have some mix in the fridge I will need to whip into something...
With the baking subbing for my run, the following solidifies my workout for the afternoon:
3x egg cracking immediately followed by 2min intervals of rigorous blending 2-3x lean and lift: removing muffin tin from oven max out- hand to mouth, ingesting of cupcakes
Almost a year ago, this Blog began as a place for me to document and share my explorations in the "Okay" town of Baltimore. With a move back to the Metropolitan area on the forefront, I will be shifting my commentary to more DC-centric content. Although I have grown to believe that Charm City is more than Okay, it is my hometown of DC and the surrounding areas that will really need to step up their game if they are going to even try and compete.
