I did, however, find two great potato patty recipes and a whole page of links to muffin recipes. When I saw Butterscotch Blondie Muffins listed on that page, I knew that was what I would make. After all who can resist a blondie or a muffin? I am definitely going to explore this blog further when I get through this ISP thing.
I made a few minor changes which is why I named my recipe Butterscotch Blondie Mini Muffcakes. A year or so ago, Tiffany from Eat at Home and I had a email conversation regarding what to call those recipes that seemed to be between a muffin and a cupcake. Muffcakes was the result of that conversation.
I used an egg instead of the egg substitute. I baked the batter in a mini muffin pan and instead of stirring in the butterscotch chips, I just placed a butterscotch chip on top of each muffin. I had hoped that the chips would remain on the top, but they sunk into the muffins. Next time I will use two chips for each muffin cup and push them into the batter to cover them.
Hubby really liked these, especially the butterscotch chip center of each mini muffin.
