Orange Cranberry Muffins

Orange Cranberry Muffins

As soon as the oranges on my tree are ripe, I always set out to make a batch of Orange Cranberry Bread. It’s a simple quickbread recipe that includes fresh cranberries and lots of freshly squeezed orange juice. It’s relatively light in texture (and it also happens to be quite low in fat, so suitable for cutting into large slices!), but full of flavor from ... Read More »

Baked Sufganiyot (a.k.a. Bite Sized Jelly Donut Holes)

Bite Sized Jelly Donut Holes

Sufganiyot are a type of jelly filled donut that are traditionally served around Hannukah, a holiday that bases many of its most popular foods on frying. The sufganiyot are not much different than any other jelly donut. They are made with a fluffy yeast dough, deep fried and then injected with a generous amount of jam or other fruity fillings. Although deep fried donuts are ... Read More »

Apple Walnut Muffins

Apple Walnut Muffins

You can chop up apples and add them to a muffin batter if you want some apple muffins. I’ve done this on occasion, usually when I want the apples to really stand apart from the rest of the muffin. But this is also the problem with this method, because the chunks of apple don’t necessarily mesh well with the rest of the muffin and you ... Read More »

Pumpkin Muffins with Toffee and Pecans

They’re easy to mix up and adding pumpkin ... Read More »

Coffee Cake Muffins

Single Serving Coffee Cake, with bite

Martha Stewart has a lot of great recipes in the many books that she has put out and there are a few that I go back to time and again. One of them is for a New York Crumb Cake, a coffee cake that is loaded with deliciously spiced streusel topping. I am a big fan of coffee cakes in general (who doesn’t like streusel?) ...

Oat Bran and Raisin Muffin Tops

Oat Bran Muffin Tops

There aren’t too many places in my neighborhood where you can buy muffin tops – at least, not without the bottom of the muffin still attached! There is one bakery that isn’t too far away, however, that still sells tasty muffin tops as well as whole muffins and sharing a few with friends put me in the mood to make some homemade muffin tops. I ... Read More »

Lemon Poppyseed Mini Muffins

Lemon Poppyseed Mini Muffins

Every time that I bake a batch of mini muffins, I tell myself that I don’t make them nearly enough. Mini muffins take a bit less time to bake than regular muffins and since you get about three mini muffins with the amount of batter that would make one regular muffin, you get a huge batch that is perfect for sharing at home, at parties ...

Strawberry Lemonade Muffins

Strawberry Lemonade Muffins

The best pink lemonades I’ve had have actually been strawberry lemonades, made with fresh lemonade and fresh, bright pink strawberries. They have more lemon than berry, but that berry makes the lemonade all the sweeter. These Strawberry Lemonade Muffins mirror that, although they do have more of a yellow color than that pink lemonade might! To make them, I mixed finely chopped strawberries into the ... Read More »
