Using the Global Sun Oven - Solar Cookerhas been the highlight of the summer. We have baked everything from cookies, pies and breads to casseroles and roasts. Here is a pie we did earlier this summer.

The biggest thing we have learned about using the sun oven is patience, some things cook as fast as a recipe calls for, some faster, and some a lot slower. Remember, the sun is in control, not you!

We love this muffin as a simple, easy to make muffin. We sometimes dip them into a bowl of maple syrup, or serve them with home-made jam.

Basic Muffin

½ cup milk
1 egg
1 ½ cup flour
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon honey

Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a muffin tin.

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well moistened. Fill muffin cups almost full.

Bake about 15 to 18 minutes.

Remove from pan and cool on a cooling rack.
