Breakfast or Dessert?

Muffin or Cupcake? I think there is a fine line between an acceptable breakfast treat and an indulgent dessert and, trust me, I don't have a problem with it. I am totally happy to eat a pain au chocolat or piece of streusel topped coffeecake or a glazed doughnut when offered. (Twist my arm!) Sure, I might ordinarily eat a bowl of Kashi or a couple of scrambled or boiled eggs, but that gets boring. A sweet breakfast is more fun (in moderation). Just like dessert!

This morning while at my photo shoot, the photo assistants whipped up a batch of chocolate chip muffins for a yummy breakfast treat. How cute is that?!? And just like any group of women, no one took one. Until someone did. And then in a flash, all that was left was a bunch of crumbs and the last, lonely muffin that no one wanted to take. Kind of like the first.

They wouldn't divulge their recipe, but I suspect that "the muffins" may have actually been made from a cake mix. Someone kept saying that they reminded her of a Dunkin Hines cake mix (in a good way!), and after I had a little taste, I can't say that she was wrong. Not my cup of tea, but who cares? They made everyone happy. And I think I have a new project: a side by side taste test of homemade chocolate chip muffins and homemade chocolate chip cupcakes. Who's in?
