Mantecadas/ Mexican Muffins

I was sure about making some thing from Mexico for the letter M of our blogging marathon. I had infact planned for chimichanga, mexican wedding soft cookies and so many other recipes from Mexico. But when I heard about these beautiful simple muffins, I knew instantaneously that I would be making them.

Mexico has so many beautiful bakes that if they were ever going to build a wall around them, they can easily build it with breads and cookies and cakes....

I also was tempted to make the pig shaped cookies which are made using molasses. But I was wary of using both molasses and the shape of the cookies being considered for consumption.

These muffins are very easy to make . It has the body of bread and sweetness of cake, so it is rightly called as a muffin, I had also made the eggless version of the muffin and found it at par with the egg based version. The eggless version had a better crust but was little greasy on top and dry within - but just being nit picky here.
