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 »

Chai Latte Muffins

I usually have a small jar of pumpkin pie spice sitting around. It’s easy to make, but in the morning it is very convenient to have some ready to go when I want to spice up my oatmeal on a chilly morning. A few weeks ago, I picked up a jar at Trader Joe’s and was very surprised to discover that it tasted nothing like ... Read More »

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

The holidays have a way of making time go by both very slowly and very quickly, which is why it has taken me so long to get this post up even though I intended to do it days ago. Fortunately for me, despite the fact that Thanksgiving is now over, pumpkins are considered to be winter fare, as well as fall. Of course, canned pumpkin ... Read More »

Gingerbread Blueberry Muffins

I must say that I felt a bit bad seeing that my front post was not about baking when this blog got a mention in the Guardian the other day, but to make up for that, I promise that this is a really good recipe. I love gingerbread in just about any form it comes in, from cookies to cakes to pancakes, and usually look ... Read More »

Apple Morning Muffins

I’m always looking for healthy baked goods, especially muffins and other breakfast pastries. I love breakfast and muffins, but I really prefer to get my days off to a relatively healthy start. This is especially true on weekdays, when I – and most people – are likely to be sitting around a bit more than a weekend. Flipping though the new issue of the Vegetarian ... Read More »

Lemon and Candied Ginger Muffins

While we were at BlogHer, Elise told me a story of some semi-disastrous lemon muffins that she had recently tried to make from a recipe given to her by a friend. What precisely caused the muffins to fail was a mystery, since the friend who supplied the recipe later had the same difficulty, despite the fact that she had succeeded with the muffins in the ...
