PB & J Muffins

PB & J Muffin

I love it when a recipe is versatile and can be easily altered for a whole new flavor combination. It gives you a lot more baking options when you don’t constantly have to grope around for a new recipe, but can just make a change or two to a tried-and-true favorite and come out with something completely different. The easiest and most straighforward way to ... Read More »

Pumpkin Muffins with Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds

Pumpkin Muffins with Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds

The approach of Halloween is the perfect excuse to indulge my love of pumpkin baked goods with some seasonally appropriate treats. These pumpkin muffins aren’t nearly decadent enough to satisfy any costumed kids looking for a treat (since they probably have candy in mind), but they do make a nice addition to breakfast on a cool fall morning. The muffins start with a simple pumpkin ... Read More »

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Muffins

peanut butter muffins with chocolate chips

Peanut butter and chocolate is a winning combination no matter how you look at it. If it weren’t, there wouldn’t be nearly so many chocolate and peanut butter confections in the candy aisle at the store. But candy isn’t the only place where you can pair these two flavors. I matched them up in this muffin recipe, adding chocolate chips to a peanut buttery muffin ... Read More »

Dark Chocolate Muffins

Tall, dark and delicious (as opposed to handsome) is the best way to describe these dark chocolate muffins, although indulgent and rich are suitable descriptors, as well. These Dark Chocolate Muffins are the perfect food to complement your latte during your morning coffee break – assuming that you’re a fan of chocolate and aren’t overly concerned with having something a bit dessert-like before lunch. Good ... Read More »

Carrot, Apple and Honey Muffins

In contrast to the relative indulgent Black Bottom Cupcakes that show up on so many cafe menus in the morning (and bake sale tables in the afternoon!), these Carrot, Apple and Honey Muffins seem to be even more virtuous than they actually are. And they are pretty good for you – as well as pretty darn tasty. The muffins are moist, tender and relatively low ... Read More »

Black Cherry Sour Cream Muffins

After I pulled this batch of muffins out of the oven, I immediately thought that I should have made muffin-tops instead of the whole muffin. The tops were perfectly domed, rising up nicely over the top of the muffin tin, and had a slightly crisp top, thanks to some sugar sprinkled on before baking. Then I tasted one of the slightly cooled muffins and was ... Read More »

English Muffins

I love breakfast foods and would be hard pressed to pick a favorite. Coffee cake? Oatmeal? Waffles? So, instead of picking one to elevate over the rest, I’ll just add another classic to the long list of fabulous ways to start the day: homemade english muffins. Doubtless, you have had one of the griddle-cooked muffins  at some time or another. An english muffin is relatively ... Read More »

Peach Muffins

The other day when I was at Trader Joe’s, I noticed the most unusual fruit in the freezer department. Now, when it comes to fruit, I always like to have fresh on hand for eating and frozen on hand for baking. After all – it can be difficult to get wild blueberries (which I adore in all kinds of cakes, muffins and scones) in January. ... Read More »
