The Brits have their scones, the Greeks their baklava, the French their croissants, and the Mexicans their tortillas. America? Our signature baking contribution is the fast-to-make muffin. Whip them up—sweet and savory—for flavor, crisp tops, and a tender crumb. Sylvia will cover other muffin varieties as well, like cranberry and cheddar-and-bacon.
Please note: If you find that price is a barrier to attending one of our classes or events, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
