Muffins A La Canada

This morning I turned my oven on, mixed up a batch of Morning Glory Muffins and when I went to put them in to bake, I realised I have either blown an oven fuse (and have no replacements currently at the house) or my element has gone kabluey. Either way, the oven was not willing to heat up and I was faced with a situation. A batch of muffins ready to bake with no oven. Normally I would just load the muffins and kids in the car and head next door but the temperature today is nothing other than just plain cold....

that is about -18 degrees C or -3 degrees F! Not including the windchill which is high today as well. Too cold to take the baby out for a batch of muffins. So I did the only other thing I could think of...I warmed up the barbeque!
And the muffins didn't turn out half bad! They took a little longer than they would have in the oven but edible all the same!

AHAHAHAHA! Brilliant! I never would have thought of that. Did they bake evenly?

I will be chuckling about this for days.

Definitely one to remember for my camping trips!

Why not? You can cook just about anything on a grill. You can even make pizza!
