Sticky Muffins

As I have said before, Poetry Tea-time is a vital part of our Home Ed week. This year I have been inspired by my daughter's Christmas gift of a muffin and cup-cake cook-book and I have determined to work my way through it. Today, it was Sticky Muffins. Middle son refused to have anything to do with anything that contained dates, but the rest of us had fun.

Not high in the beauty stakes, they were delicious.Middle son still would not try even a bite,but enjoyed a cookie and read us some Michael Rosen poetry.
We also shared some A.A. Milne (The King's Breakfast is one of my favourites as I love to do all the voices: King, Queen, Dairymaid and Alderney cow) and a couple from an anthology of poems inspired by the senses: donkeys' large ears and all that they can hear, and if you were a chocolate, would you eat yourself?

love the attitude of your middle son - so reminds me of my own son! Are you having Poetry tea this coming Thursday?

Poetry Tea is, quite literally, a moveable feast! This week we're planning for Wednesday as choir starts up again on Thursday. No matter how much I try to have a schedule and stick to it, we seem to have a slightly different pattern each week!

Looks like fun! Those muffins *do* look very sticky. Bet they taste great. Your tea things are daughters would drool over the lovely pattern. I'll have to show them your photos.

Not only sticky, but surprisingly delicious and a hit with my husband too! Definitely will be making these again.
