Sour Cream Coffee Cake

I found this recipe today while having my morning coffee and reading about the melting properties of shortening. It was on Crisco Canada, but what drew me in wasn’t the shortening (I used oil), but the pancake mix. I’ve made plenty of scratch sour cream coffee cakes, but was curious to see how a pancake […]

Ginger Mini Muffins

Breakfasts have been a little boring around here, so this week I tried to spice things up with some some mini ginger muffins. Using a recipe I typically use for regular gingerbread, I baked it my Baker’s Secret Nonstick 24-Cup Mini Muffin Pan. The results were moist muffins with beautifully rounded tops. As for flavor, […]

Cinnamon Donut Mini Muffins

Today’s breakfast was courtesy of Whit at Chicken on the Green, who posted a great picture of some high-rising, cinnamon-coated, donut-tastin’ mini muffins. I figured with Fuzz’s aversion to fruited muffins and her attitude as of late towards waffles, these would be perfect. They were! I had fun following the trail of muffin crumbs (not […]

Today’s late afternoon muffins are dedicated to Fuzz, who reminded me that she does not care for muffins with cooked fruit and politely suggested I make blueberry muffins without berries. I told her that was fine, but insisted on adding butterscotch morsels. That idea, she liked. This recipe makes a good muffin – mini or […]

I was supposed to be cleaning and prepping for Fuzz’s party, but I got an email from a friend asking for a good streusel muffin recipe. I hadn’t planned on baking today, but streusel muffins sounded so good I ran to the kitchen and made a quick batch. This is a half batch, …

I’ve been running errands and haven’t had a chance to bake anything. However, Fuzz is finally starting to appreciate muffins and has asked me if I’d make her some for her take-to-school-morning-snack. Here is the recipe I’m using. It’s based on one in Glamour Magazine’s Gourmet on the Run cookbook which my aunt gave me […]

gingerbread muffin

Fuzz is back in school today and I’m catching up on the usual chores. Instead of cookies, I decided to make something more practical. Muffins seemed like a good idea, and since they can stand in as breakfast or snack, I figured they’d be useful.  Fuzz doesn’t like things suspended in muffins, so I made her […]
