Zafara Muffins, Anyone???

by Yamakarasu

Here is the top secret Zafara muffin recipe. There is a old myth that goes along with it that you must hear about!!

It was said that long ago, an old king in Sakhmet had the biggest sweet tooth. He had heard of these fantastic muffins and ordered his entire kingdom to make them. Everyone tried, but failed miserably. The one day, a little yellow Zafara passed by Sakhmet. The king asked the Zafara if she could make muffins. She had never tried anything like it before but agreed. Following nothing but her own gut feelings, she created the most amazing muffins ever made in Neopia. The king had this recipe written down and thanked the Zafara before she left. Oddly enough, when everyone else is Sakhmet tried the recipe, it just wasn't the same. Years later, a blue Zafara passed by Sakhmet and was asked to follow the muffin recipe. It wasn't until he made them flawlessly did the king finally understand that Zafaras could only make them just right. He then bestowed the name of "Zafara Muffin" onto the recipe and kept it safe until another Zafara would pass by the city to create the wonderful muffins.

Prep time: 30 minutes
Baking time: 20-25 minutes
Makes: 12 muffins

Ingredients:
3 Chocolate Man (Men?), broken in pieces
1 Box of Wheat Flakes
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
5 FruitMallows
3/4 cup melted butter
1/2 to 3/4 cup Kau Kau Farm Milk
1/2 cup Scarab Cookies, finely chopped
1 Red Eye Egg
100 grams Milk Chocolate Usuls
2 tablespoons Sutek Beans, crushed

Instructions:
1. Preheat stone oven to 200-210 degrees C
2. Lightly grease and flour a medium sized muffin tray
3. Sift the flour into a bowl; stir in the Wheat Flakes, sugar and Sutek Beans and make a well in the middle.
4. Chop the Scarab Cookies. These should be small enough to taste but not so large as to distract from the Chocolate Men. (about 2/3 of the size of a Chocolate Man piece.)
5. Lightly beat the Red Eye Egg and add the melted butter, Kau Kau Milk and FruitMallows.
6. Melt the Milk Chocolate Usuls.
7. Pour the fluid mixture into the flour, add the Scarab Cookies, and crushed Chocolate Men, mix with a fork until all the dry ingredients are moistened.
8. Add the melted Chocolate Usuls, and mix it into the mixture. Do not beat the mixture.
9. Even distribute the mixture into the Muffin tray and bake in a Hot stone oven (200-210 Degrees C) for 20 - 25 minutes. After 20 minutes check the muffins by placing a skewer into several of the muffins if they come out "clean" the skewer may have chocolate on it from melted chocolate), if the muffins are not done check ever 2 or so minutes being careful not to over cook.
10. Once cooked allow the muffins to cool for about 3 minutes before removing from the tray (they are a very tender muffin).

Serve warm or cold, although they are best hot (straight from the oven) and topped with some cream and accompanied by a large Golden Juppie Delight.

Happy Eating!
