Rice Muffins

October 16, 2012

This is another great recipe from Mama Tweedle-in-law. I have never had them anywhere else, or heard of them, which is too bad, because these muffins are tasty! The part is that it is a good way to use up your leftover rice from supper! They are one of Mr. Tweedle's favourites. It's the bacon on the bottom that makes them so good!

Start by lining the cups of a greased muffin tin with a cross of bacon. I slice each bacon piece in quarters- in half lengthwise and then in half width-wise. You will need 6 pieces of bacon. 
Combine the wet ingredients in a bowl and add a heaping cup of leftover rice. Mix it in and add the dry ingredients. 
Fill the muffin cups almost to the top with the batter and bake for 25 minutes. I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup for each muffin. 
When they come out, the bacon has crisped up and the bottoms are nice and brown from the bacon fat and sugar combining to caramelize. They're a great recess snack or to accompany your lunchtime soup!
Here's the Recipe!

1. Cream 2 T of shortening, margerine or butter with 1/2 cup of sugar.
2. Add 2 beaten eggs, 1 cup milk and 1 cup cooked rice.
3. Add 1 1/2 cups flour, 2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt.
4. Grease muffin tins and line with a cross of bacon on the bottom.
5. Fill cups with batter and bake at 375 for 25 mins.

Tweedle Tip: You should never stir muffin batter too much. The more you stir, the more point your muffin tops will come out. For nice round muffins, stir the batter as little as possible.

    Mmmm. These look tasty! I'm going to try these!

  2. My mother always made these when I was a kid. My friends looked forward to having them on mornings after sleep overs. For years, I too never saw a recipe like this (though I have my Mom's handwritten recipe!) Upon further looking I finally found a recipe like this in a 1949 newspaper. Thank you Google booksearch!
