What a fun book this is. Aside from the 200 recipes, it also talks about muffin tins, sizes to use and nutritional analysis for each recipe. These recipes are fast, easy, mess-free, and provides built-in portion control. Now because I am gluten free, I chose to swap out the all purpose flour listed and went with a gluten free blend I like. The recipes I made came out great.

These were for breakfast one weekend, a little dusting of powdered sugar and fresh fruit and berries. We all loved these little cuties, they're like mini puff pancakes than deflate, prefect for berries and such to place inside.

These cute little lemon pudding cakes were light and fluffy, tart and delicious. Rather than serving them in the silicone liners, I carefully dumped them out right so you could see the pudding. Mmm.
