Spiced Cocoa Muffin Chocolate Muffin

What a great feeling it is to switch on the oven light and see that your muffins have risen up, up, up and have beautiful crowns. It’s especially nice when you’re trying a brand new recipe with flavors you know everyone will love. In this case, it’s chocolate with a hint of spice.

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.

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 […]

butterscotch muffins

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 […]

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 […]

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Here’s another recipe using Greek yogurt. These muffins are lower in fat than most and have a some fiber from whole wheat flour, applesauce and zucchini. Too keep the muffins moist, I used a little molasses, but honey or maple syrup would probably work just as well and add a little boost of flavor in […]

Banana Muffins

The Cherry Pie didn’t work out so well, but I still managed to bake up a treat this afternoon thanks to some over-ripe banana and a recipe with interesting proportions. Also, I apologize for today’s photos. My camera and the light aren’t getting along at the moment. This recipe is from a site called The […]
