Gluten Free Banana Pecan Muffins

Gluten Free Banana Pecan Muffins

Gluten free baked goods seem to be getting more popular all the time. This means that there are more products out to help you bake gluten free things than there were, say, five or six years ago. For instance, you can now easily pick up a bag of gluten free flour, such as the Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour I keep in ... Read More »

Mocha Chocolate Chip Muffins

Mocha Chocolate Chip Muffins

I definitely like my muffins with a cup of coffee in the morning, and this muffin has a nice infusion of coffee on its own. Mocha Chocolate Chip Muffins have a nice combination of coffee and cocoa, thanks to the inclusion of some instant espresso powder to the recipe. They also get a little extra hit of chocolate from the generous amount of chocolate chips ... Read More »

Orange Blueberry Muffins

Orange Blueberry Muffins

After eating a sub-par muffin at a diner I really like recently, I realized that it has been far too long since I made a batch of muffins at home. It’s funny to have gotten out of the “habit” of making a batch every week or two, since they’re so easy to make, but then again there is nothing like an absecse (of muffins, in ... Read More »

Blueberry Apricot Muffins

Blueberry Apricot Muffins

When all kinds of fruits come into season at around the same time, I end up trying to cram all kinds of things into each dish I make.

This is something of a variation on it, although I opted for a muffin form rather than a bread. These Banana Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins were inspired by a description of some muffins ...

Muffin Biscotti

Most muffin recipes make a dozen muffins. Sometimes I can get through the whole dozen – with a little help, of course – and sometimes I just can’t. Leftover muffins are usually good for a day or two, but most don’t hold up well longer than that. One solution is to freeze them when they are fresh and defrost them when you want to eat ...

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Apple Cinnamon Muffins, top view

I recently stopped in at a local cafe and ordered a tasty looking apple muffin to go with a cup of coffee. That muffin only had about two pieces of apple in the entire thing, and was pretty disappointing overall. Naturally, this set me on a mission to make a simple, tasty apple muffin. Apple and cinnamon is always a great pairing, so I started ... Read More »

Lime Poppy Seed Muffins

Lime Poppyseed Muffins

Lemon poppy seed muffins are one of the few types of muffins that utilize poppy seeds.  The tiny little seeds don’t add much flavor to a pastry (not in small amounts, anyway), but add color and texture to an otherwise plain pastry. They fit well with lemon because they don’t detract from the delicate citrus flavor of the fruit while making the muffins ever so ... Read More »
