In September of 2009, I started a cupcake adventure. If you haven't read about it yet, you can do so here. ***
The ingredients for these cupcakes look more like breakfast ingredients than anything, so I suppose the following could also be classified as muffins. And as such, you can eat them for breakfast! ;)
Here are the batter ingredients:
And here are the topping ingredients. Not too different.
Ahh, here we go. The infamous creaming butter and sugar shot.
Oatmeal is obviously a critical part of this recipe, given the title and all.
And when you combine oatmeal with brown sugar and butter...
You get a yummy, crumbly topping!
Once your ingredients are creamed together,
a little bit of oatmeal makes for a nice batter.
But before they are ready for the oven,
A dab of strawberry jelly must be added.
And covered with more batter.
Look at those. I should've KNOWN they would overflow in the oven. They are already full! Have I not learned ANYTHING?! Somebody slap me.
But they just look so pretty! Too bad we aren't done yet.
What did I tell you...overflow. Sheesh.
At least when something looks this goofy, it still tastes good. If I make these again, I'll probably divide the batter to twice as many liners!
