Banana Muffins Made with Mayonnaise

Sir Kensington's Mayonnaise

Today’s muffins are made with Sir Kensington’s, a fancy mayonnaise made with cage free eggs, sunflower oil and citrus. To be honest, it’s really too exquisite to use in baking, but I received a free sample for review so I didn’t mind testing it in muffins. If you happen upon it at Whole Foods, you’ll […]

Cream Cheese Filled Pineapple Pound Cake Muffins

Today’s creation resulted from my attempt to use up half a can of crushed pineapple that had been hanging out in the refrigerator. At first I was going to make regular pineapple muffins, but since I  eat baked goods during the day rather than at breakfast, I decided to go with something a little more […]

Cranberry Orange Muffin

Today’s recipe is made with White Lily, a soft wheat  flour popular in the South.  For the past few weeks I’ve been using all-purpose, but this week I switched to self-rising White Lily and am loving the results. In America, it seems that most bakers use all-purpose flour mixed with a combination of baking powder […]

apple pie muffin

I’ve been craving apple pie for the past few days, but since I don’t have enough people around to help me eat it, I baked a batch of these apple flavored muffins. They may not be quite as good pie, but they did the trick. Hopefully Fuzz will like them, too. She doesn’t care for […]

Orange Cranberry Swirl Muffins

Orange Cranberry Swirl Muffins

Every Thanksgiving I make too much cranberry sauce. Usually it goes home with my mom, but this year she didn’t take a to-go box and we were left with almost 2 cups. Rather than use it in a sweet/savory dish, I took the easy route and baked some of it into muffins. These have big crowns and swirls of cranberry throughout. I like muffins with big rims, so I piled the muffin batter into the cups. For shorter muffins, fill just to the top and make 9.

Lemon Blackberry

Here’s another muffin to throw on the pile! I baked a couple of batches of these over the weekend and was really happy with the results. This muffin in the photo was made with blackberries, but I tested with blueberries and raspberries and liked those variations too (photo of that after the jump). There was […]

total muffins

Good Morning! It’s time to start the day with some muffins. Oh wait, it’s 10:00 already. Yikes. My plan to get to before midnight and wake up earlier is not working out. Luckily muffins are for any time of the day. These were actually for Fuzz, whose mouth is still …

banana muffins with protein powder

I was supposed to go grocery shopping this morning, but got sidetracked by a couple of over-ripe bananas sitting on the counter. Thinking I might be able to partner them with some protein powder and make some groovy new banana bread, I looked at a few different bread and muffin recipes and came up with […]
