No, I won't be buying these again! However, since I bought a second package, I suppose I will have to bake the other. The first one was in the cabinet in plain sight, but I could not find it.
When I mixed these today, I scraped the bowl and tasted. The mix has rice flour. Obviously, rice flour is gritty. When I baked them, the rice flour was still gritty as I ate the muffins hot and then as I ate cooled ones.
I am sorry, but the grit got in the way of satisfaction. For you it may not be a problem. The taste was good and chocolatey and the chips were very melty even when cold. The package says that it makes 5 muffins. Correct, there was no dough for another to make it 6.
Several months ago, I bought a pack of 6 silicone muffin cups. I used those to bake, placing them in a cake pan. Now, I have to wash them.
I have plenty of cupcake papers, so that won't be a problem for the rest of my life. Sometime before she died 1993, way before she died, my mother gave me a lifetime supply of muffin cups. I gave some to my daughter, maybe to someone else. I still have boxes and boxes of them. Just now I remembered that she gave me these muffin cups in 1978.
Now, I am not sure if I will ever buy the rice flour after the gritty feeling.
Have you ever used rice flour in anything? Does the grittiness get in the way of satisfaction?
