I’ve been making these muffins a lot this summer, so I thought I would share them with you all! Everyone seems to really like them, and I feel like they’ve done their job of strengthening and reviving my friendships with others.
This recipe makes 12 standard size muffins. Feel free to make substitutions to the recipe as you see fit!
2 and ¼ cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
A pinch of salt
1 cup sugar
½ cup oil (coconut, canola, vegetable)
1 cup light sour cream (can be substituted with plain greek yogurt)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Zest of 1 lemon
1 and ½ cups (12 oz) fresh raspberries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Grease a muffin pan or use parchment/foil muffins cups to line the pan.
In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder/soda, and salt. Make sure all of the ingredients are evenly distributed.
In a medium size bowl mix together the sugar, oil, sour cream, eggs, vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest. Whisk until the sugar dissolves.
Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients and fold until combined. Be careful not to over mix!
Fold in the raspberries until evenly distributed. (A tip I use to make sure all the berries don’t sink to the bottom is that I mix them with a little bit of flour before I fold them into the mix.
Use an ice cream scoop to evenly divide the mixture into you’re already greased/lined muffin pan.
Bake for 18-25 minutes depending on oven type. To check to see if the muffins are done you can insert a toothpick into a few of them. If the toothpick comes out clean, then they are done!
Magic and Correspondences:
Lemon- Purification, healing, removal of any negative influences or blockages. The yellow from the zest corresponds with friendship and healing.
Raspberries- Growth, the strengthening of relationships. The red of the berries is associated with passion, desire, renewal, and joy.
Sugar- Sweetens not only the muffins, but the magic of them too. It can sweeten the bond and energy in your relationship.
Vanilla- Love, passion, peace, and luck.
You can also draw some friendship sigils on the parchment/foil cups if you use them. While mixing the muffins channel your intent to revive and strengthen your friendships with others. Feel free to pair this with a spoken spell, but I prefer to just focus my intent and channel it’s energy into the muffins when I’m adding the ingredients, mixing them, and while I watch them bake.
Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl. You want the dough to be lumpy when making pancakes, but you don’t want the starting base to be lumpy.
Melt your butter and combine with the apple sauce and sugar. With an electric hand mixer mix the brine until it’s stiff and fluffy.
Pour your milk and butter mixture into the peaked brine and lightly mix together.
Pour your wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and fold them together. Do not over mix! Your batter should be a little lumpy. Then set aside in the fridge for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes heat a large frying pan with some vegan butter. Take about 2 tbsp worth of batter and just drop it on your pan. Fry until little bubbles start forming then flip the pancake on the other side.
Once you’re finished you can top you pancakes with whatever you want. I used maple syrup and coco whip and some raspberries. Have fun!
One day you’re gonna be minding your own business and some handsome bearded stranger wearing a flannel button up will bump into you at a coffee shop making you spill your tea on your dress and he’ll be really apologetic and help you clean it up and you’ll look into each other’s eyes and get all quiet and star struck and then he’ll ask to take you out to dinner as an apology and you’ll discuss your mutual interest in photography and New York and fashionable toddlers and laugh about Schmidt’s funniest lines on New Girl and then he’ll take you home and walk you to your door like a gentlemen and give you a kiss on your cheek as he holds your hair in one hand and then ask for your number to call you for a second date and then a third and then a fourth and you’ll fall madly in love with his cooking and he’ll fall madly in love with your over obsession of quirky dresses and you’ll eventually move in together in an adorable apartment in the middle of the city with large windows and tall ceilings with brick walls and hardwood floors and you’ll adopt a cat and golden retriever and take painfully cute pictures of each other while you sleep with your pets and then weddings bells and then a baby carriage and you’re gonna have the happiest ending because that’s what you deserve.
