Pumpkin Muffins

Share

This is a perfect fall recipe because it calls for a fresh pumpkin. It’s perfect to make just after Halloween when you may have a pumpkin or two kicking around the house.  Be sure to use a pumpkin suited for baking – not all of them are.  The big pumpkins that we buy […]

Whole Wheat Apple Muffins

Share

I was responsible for snack at the boys’ soccer game today, so I brought up a bunch of sliced-up oranges and a batch of these muffins. The team made short work of both. I was very impressed with the muffins. They were quite moist and very tasty. They’re […]

English Muffins

I made some Naan last week that turned out very well. It involved yeast, so I was actually surprised that I didn’t wreck it.   I don’t usually do well with yeast. Since I bought a 3-pack of yeast and I had some success with the Naan, I looked for […]

Mini Maple Pancake Muffins

Share

My boys LOVED these!  In the city I have a gas range and big griddle so it’s fairly easy to make pancakes, but here on Shelter Island we have an electric stove and no griddle, so pancakes can be a chore. I actually don’t make them here for that reason.

I made some […]

Cinnamon Sugar-Dipped Blueberry Muffins

Share

I made these blueberry muffins the other day and they’re delicious.   They also look really nice; the blueberries are distributed nicely through the muffins, and the sugar topping is very attractive.  The muffins themselves are not too sweet so the sugar topping is a nice addition.  I like the fact that they’re made without […]

Baked Apple "Donuts"

Share

These “donuts” didn’t last long in our kitchen this morning. They are a variation of these muffins that I made earlier this summer, the primary difference being that these “donuts” (they’re actually more like muffins) have lots of diced apple in them. The apple seems to make them a bit heavier than […]

Lemon Muffins

This recipe comes from the Williams Sonoma website. Their recipe is for lemon bread, but I’m on Shelter Island without a loaf pan, so I made the batter, poured it into greased mini-muffin pans and voila… lemon muffins. These really pack a lemony punch. I found them to be […]

Sugar Donut Muffins

One of my sons had a friend sleep over the other night. He’s a huge fan of my baking, so I knew I had to make something really good for breakfast. I decided on Cinnamon Bun Loaf. Doesn’t that sound good? Well it wasn’t. In fact […]

Cinnamon Muffins

Truth be told, I think these muffins are pretty good, but my boys LOVE them!   They’ll eat them anytime, for breakfast, snack or dessert.   They taste like cinnamon buns, but not as heavy or as sweet.  I may make them another batch tomorrow morning!

The original recipe called for all white flour and double […]

Another Delicious Blueberry Muffin

Share

One of my sons frequently asks me to make blueberry muffins, but I never have frozen blueberries in the freezer and it’s definitely not blueberry season here in NY so I don’t have fresh blueberries either.   I was in Costco the other day and found a big bag of frozen blueberries in their freezer section, […]
