Muffin Math (and Science)

We are making muffins this morning. There are a few good resources here and here and here and here. Chaos substituted Splenda for the sugar; the recipe called for a quarter cup honey, but she left it out. Possible explorations:
  • How many calories are there in each muffin with the honey and without?
  • What is "yeast" and "leaven"?
  • How do quick breads rise?
  • What is the history of the muffin?
  • What is the origin of the word muffin?
  • How many calories does the butter add?
This is fun!
