letter 'M'


When something's sweet and sugary
Yet crisply crunchy too,
You cannot get enough of it.
And that's not only you!
Preheat your oven to three-fifty,
Paper-line your muffin pan,
Dice your apples, melt your butter,
Cook five minutes; that's the plan.
Stir in salt and sugar
And let the mixture cool.
Mix flour, nuts and soda,
Thoroughly, that's the rule.
Egg beaten with vanilla
Will be in another bowl.
 Now mix the lot together!
What a mixture! Bless my soul!
In the muffin pan cook for only 
Fifteen minutes. Extra treat?
Dust with icing sugar.
These will be hard to beat.


  • 2  sweet baking or eating  apples      250 g unsalted butter      1  cup  light brown sugar
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt          1 1/2  cups  all-purpose flour       1/2  cup  chopped walnuts
  • 3/4  teaspoon  baking soda      1  large egg      1/2  teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2  tablespoon  icing sugar



Such a perfect lady! So quiet and demure!
So modest and retiring! So absolutely pure!
But someone put a wig on her at some outlandish 'do'
And Mary turned to extrovert! She shouted out 'Yahoo!'
We saw another side of her! She almost danced a jig!
Such a transformation! What magic in a wig!
