Best Muffin Recipes

Holly in WISeptember 20, 2001

Okay. I'll start. I mentioned in the "Breakfast" post that muffins are very easy to make and freeze until ready to eat. How wonderful is it that my kids can pull one out of the freezer, and pop it in the microwave for a few quick seconds? Voila! Breakfast on the run.

Here are a few MUFFIN RECIPES that I make. Hopefully we can all add to this post.

The following recipe was found in an Ozark Recipe Collection cookbook. It is a great MAKE-AHEAD recipe for an abundance of muffins:


2 C. dates, cut up

5 tsp. baking powder

2 C. boiling water

1 C. butter

2 C. brown sugar

4 eggs, beaten

1 quart buttermilk

5 C. flour

1 tsp. salt

1 C. chopped nuts

4 C. oatmeal

Mix dates and soda in medium bowl; cover with boiling water. Let cool. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and buttermilk. Blend well and add dates. Add flour, salt, nuts, and oatmeal. Stir just until moistened. Fill buttered muffin pans or muffin paper cups two-thirds full. Bake about 20 minutes at 400*. THIS MIX WILL KEEP IN THE REFRIGERATOR UP TO SIX WEEKS.


(Makes the whole house smell warm and inviting when baking or rewarming.)

1 1/2 C. whole wheat flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 egg

1 C. buttermilk

1/4 C. honey, or 1/2 C. apple juice concentrate

3 Tbls. applesause

2 Tbls. oil

Sift together dry ingredients. In separate bowl, combine wet ingredients. Make a well in dry ingredients and add wet ingredients. Stir until moist. Spoon into greased muffin tins or paper muffin cups. Bake at 400* for 20 minutes. (Makes roughly 12 muffins)

I'll continue to add more recipes for muffins. What are some of your favorites?

I made a big mistake and I'm hoping that those of you who made the "Many Muffins" already will forgive me. I was emailed by someone (thank you for pointing this out) who read my post above and made the muffins. The directions are somewhat confusing as it states baking powder in the ingredients, but later when I explain how to make them I speak of mixing "soda".

The proper ingredient is baking soda NOT baking powder. Please forgive me if you have made these already before the correction. If you were in my town, I would send you 100 muffins for my mistake.

(Walking away in shame),
