Farmville Muffins


… because inspiration sometimes follows weird ways :-).

I don’t know how many of you play Farmville on the internet. I used to, until, say, two months ago…then I started a new job, which leaves  a very little time for myself. Anyway, I’m not going to explain you deeply what Farmville is about, the point is that it’s a “virtual farm” where you can grow your own vegetables, fruits…their last invention is that, once you’ve got a certain amount of vegetables, cereals and fruit, you can “bake” them in a “virtual bakery”  to get pies, cookies, muffins…Ok, let’s say that everyone has his own “dark side” 😛
One of those “recipes” is for “Spicy Muffins”, and that’s where my inspiration came from.

1 cup of rice flour (mine was whole grain, freshly ground with my terrific food processor)
1 cup of millet flour (again, freshly ground)
1 cup of ground carrot
3/4 of a cup of minced red capsicum
3 teaspoon of baking powder
2 tablespoon of olive oil (but you can also use sunflower oil…maybe it’s even better, actually, as I think they’ll come out lighter and more crumbly)
1 teaspoon of salt
1 pinch of paprika
1 tablespoon of water or soy milk or soy yogurt (or more, just check the consistency)

First, mix all the dry ingredients, except carrots and capsicum. Then, mix wet ingredients – including carrots and capsicum. Now, quickly mix them together and stir as less as you can. Pour the mixture into the muffin molds and bake in preheated oven at 180°C for 15/20 minutes. Let them cool, as they’re fairly crumbly when just removed from the oven. I found them pretty interesting, I loved their texture, which is due to the two flours I’ve chosen: rice and millet are great in this regard,  muffins came out really light and crumbly.

I can’t remember how many muffins I got with these doses, anyway more than the two shown in the pics :-)!

    They’re wonderful and very bright! I don’t like capsicum but they’re would be suitable for my dad…I’d add some hot pepper for him too 😉

    I know Farmville very well, my girlfriend plays it as well! Don’t know whether she “bakes” though… but she could bake them for real 😛
