This recipe is part of a series about the “One-Minute-Muffin“, even though this recipe isn’t an OMM.
OMM’s are little more than a quick bread batter, microwaved in a cup. Within 60 seconds, a full MUFFIN can be “baked”, resulting in a warm, fresh muffin! Realistically, this is just a standard batter, and can be used in a variety of ways. Take the same batter, place it into a ceramic cup and bake it for 22 minutes and … MUFFIN! The same thing results! It just takes longer. There is ONE extra benefit, which is caramelization. Because the heat is external, the outside of the muffin “browns” creating a more complex flavor. Other than that … same exact muffin!
I wanted to conduct a test by making a big batch of basic unsweetened OMM batter, infused with a few herbs and some garlic. I wanted something resembling a focaccia, but without yeast or wheat. I wanted it “quick bread” style!
It’s too much batter for the microwave, but the very same batter could be popped into the microwave for little savory herb muffins.
Let’s just say … it worked! IT WORKED WONDERS!! Delicious! Try some with dinner, or … slice it for AMAZING sandwiches!
