Don’t let the amount of ingredients listed in a recipe stop you from trying it. You’ll see that most of the ingredients are typically herbs, spices and other baking/cooking ingredients like oil, baking powder, etc.
The trick is to get everything out on the counter that you will need. This makes the process much easier and more efficient. It’s what the French call “Mise en place” or “everything in its place”.
Take this dessert muffin for example.
One thing you will notice is that the only real prepping is mashing bananas and whisking eggs. Everything else is a matter of measuring out, mixing and baking.
I encourage you to read the whole recipe first before thinking it is too much for you (although you should always read the whole recipe anyway before you start!) You may be surprised that it’s easier than you think!
