No TWD Today

It was a sweltering 113 degrees in Los Angeles today! We're definitely making up for the crummy summer weather this year, but this is a bit too much.

I had every intention of making this week's TWD recipe for Tart Fine, but could not muster up the courage to turn on the oven today. I definitely want to make this beautiful tart, but it will have to wait until this heatwave breaks.

My apologies to Leslie of Lethally Delicious, who is our hostess this week. If you're curious to see and read more on this delicious sounding tart, please check out the TWD Blogroll.

On another note, I'm super excited about some long overdue changes happening here at Tender Crumb. Stay tuned for more updates at the end of this week...

Coffee Break Muffins (TWD)

coffee break muffins-1
As a self-confessed coffee junkie, this week's Tuesday With Dorie recipe for Coffee Break Muffins is right up my alley. Rhiani of Chocoholic Anonymous is our hostess this week, and you can find the complete recipe on her blog.

I've been needing this additional boost of caffeine. Insomnia + catching up on DVR backlog = not a lot of sleep.

Dorie goes bold with the coffee in this recipe. Strong brewed coffee plus a healthy amount of instant espresso gives these muffins its pep.

I thought these muffins needed a little something else, so I topped half of the muffins with a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips.

These muffins were super yummy! I actually enjoyed the plain muffins over the chocolate chip topped version. The coffee flavor is not shy, but it doesn't overwhelm. I particularly loved the texture of these muffins - a nice tight crumb, but not overly dense.

These babies will definitely make a repeat appearance at my breakfast table.
