I had something else planned for this post about muffins, but it fell through. I'll have to work on getting it put together at a later date. In the meantime, I searched the internet and came up with a list of muffin recipe and ideas plus added my favourite muffin recipe at the end.
Did you know you can freeze muffin batter? Laura at Heavenly Homemakers explains how to do it. Just think you could have a freezer full of muffins to bake just when you needed them. Fresh and hot muffins with no mess - how great is that? This is something I definitely want to do with my middle daughter who loves to bake. We don't usually have muffins for breakfast, but we eat them a lot for snacks.
Chocolate Overload Muffins - If it has chocolate I'm all over that. ☺
Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins - Strawberry and cream cheese a beautiful combination.
Peanut Butter Banana Muffins - My children would like these.
Oatmeal Flax Blueberry Muffins - These look delicious AND healthy.
Lemon Poppyseed Muffins - Lemon is my favourite flavour after chocolate. These look fantastic.
And here is one of my favourite muffins to make when I need a filling muffin for my hungry tribe. I found this recipe in a newspaper and used it numerous times ever since. I had been on the search for a good raisin bran muffin recipe, and this is it. These muffins are a generous size. They are tasty and filling. Sometimes we have them with peanut butter on top for a little extra protein.
1 1/2 cups wheat bran
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 large egg
1/2 cup butter - melted and cooled
1/3 cup molasses
1 1/2 cup raisins
Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners or grease well.
Stir wheat bran and buttermilk together and let sit for 10 minutes (or not - I don't always ~wink~)
Mix dry ingredients. Add eggs, butter and molasses to the buttermilk mixture.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and scatter raisins on top. Mix gently just until dry ingredients are incorporated.
Fill muffin cups (they will be full). Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.
