More One Point Blueberry Muffins

I was in the mood for baking, just not for having anything too tempting around to pig out on. The good thing about muffins is after enjoying a few, they can be wrapped up, frozen, and put out of sight. They're the same kind of muffins I made a few days ago, using Kodiak Cakes Flapjack Mix. I meant to add some cinnamon this time, but forgot, so I sprinkled a little on top before popping them in the Sun Oven. It was a nice touch. I really like having muffins in the freezer. It's so easy to grab one on your way out the door, put it on the dashboard to defrost, and in no time you'll have a nice treat to enjoy on the road.

  2. I have one question: how to you judge whe things are done? I always over cook my backed goods. I know that I am not much of cook compared to you, but maybe you could give me some hints to judge when things are done and not over cooked.

    Reallly enjoy your blog.

  3. Jim - I'd say the first trick is to always preheat you Sun Oven for baked goods. Then I just test for doneness like I would with a conventional oven; with a toothpick, or for bread, by tapping on the loaf. Here in AZ we have the luxury of being able to quickly open the Sun Oven without really losing much heat. I set my timer for whatever the recipe cooking time is and start checking when it goes off. If I can tell by looking at it that it's not done I set the timer for another ten minutes or so. I'm not really much of a baker and I have overdone a few things - I've even managed to burn cookies - but I've done that with a conventional oven too. I once forgot I had baguettes in the indoor oven set to very high temperature and went out. Luckily I got home before the house burned down!

  4. Hello and thanks for your comments. My big worry is opening the oven to check things. I guess that you don't find that a problem. And if living in AZ makes it easier, then I should have the same advantage since I most likely only 3 to 5 miles away (I am also in Gilbert). I guess that I was simple to fearful to open the oven up until I know things are (over) cooked. Silly me.

    Again I have enjoyed you blog and it's fun to see that see share sunny and cloudy days while trying to use a solar oven.

    Thanks for you comments
    Jim
