Azuki Tonka Muffins by Alissa

this is my own invention that i created today..but i am not happy about the end result... A few weeks ago i got some azuki beans (red beans) to make some red been paste buns.... i had some red been paste left so i thought hmmm i could play around with that and make muffins..... and voila... here they are ... i had to make up my mind about the flavoring as the beens have a very nice sweet nutty taste on their own that i wanted to keep. I added some Tonka bean that i freshly grated, saigon cinnamon ...WOW i could just eat the batter -lol.... anyway they are in the oven while i am typing this and i can smell the tonka... it is such a very special sexy aroma... Alissa

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup red been paste (homemade)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 tsp freshly grated Tonka
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Line your muffin tray and preheat the oven to 350°F.

Whisk together bean paste, oil, eggs, spices, sugar, baking soda and salt until smooth, then whisk in flour and baking powder just until combined.

Divide batter among muffin cups (3/4 full). Bake until puffed and wooden pick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean, 25 min.

Cool in pan on a rack 5 min, then transfer muffins from pan to rack and let cool....
The result is ok and moist but i still have to work on this recipe i am not satisfied with the texture and the muffin look itself...
