Here's a recipe that I got from my aunt. She says these muffins are really good. I haven't tried it yet, so I don't know what the batter is like. Here's the recipe in case you're interested.

Raspberry Muffins

½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup margarine, melted
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
3 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
Cream cheese

In a large bowl, beat eggs well. Add sugar, oil, margarine, and milk. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add to wet ingredients. Stir until just combined.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling only halfway. Add 1 tsp cream cheese and 7 or 8 raspberries. Top with more batter.

Bake in a preheated 400°F oven for 15-20 minutes.

We adored Sol's Dirt Bombs aka Duffins! They're a delicious bit of cinnamon and cardamon heaven!

Dirt Bombs
Yields: 12 muffins*
3 cups AP flour, minus 3 tablespoons
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cardamon
¾ cup (1 ½ sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup whole milk **

Topping ***

¾ cups unsalted butter, melted
½ cup granulated sugar
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400º F. Place the rack in the center position. Generously grease a 12-cup standard muffin pan.

Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cardamon into a mixing bowl. In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Scrape the bowl down half way through. Mix in the eggs. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk in two additions, mixing gently by hand to incorporate all the flour. The batter will be on the stiff side, but airy. DonÂt over mix or beat the batter as this will make the muffins tough. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, without smoothing the tops. Bake for about 25 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. As soon as the muffins are cool enough to handle, turn them out onto a wire rack.

Add the melted butter to a bowl. In another bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon.
Dip the muffins (top, sides and bottom) in the butter, using a pastry brush -if necessary- to cover areas not buttered by dipping. Immediately roll the muffins in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve warm or at room temperature.

*I've made this twice, and both times, this recipe has yielded 16 muffins instead of 12.
**I substituted whole buttermilk for whole milk because I always have it on hand and prefer it for baking.
*** The amounts listed for the sugar and cinnamon are not quite enough to coat all the muffins, so I recommend you double it.


My note: I used low fat buttermilk as that was all the store had, and they were delicious!

These strawberry rhubarb muffins are my absolute favorites... Sweet, a little tart, not greasy at all...

Strawberry-Rhubarb Muffins

1 ¾ cups flour

½ cup sugar

2 ½ tsp baking powder

¾ tsp salt

1 egg, lightly beaten

¾ cup milk

1/3 cup vegetable oil

¾ cup minced fresh rhubarb

½ cup (generous) sliced strawberries

6 strawberrries, cut in half from stem to tip

Extra sugar for sprinkling

Heat oven to 400

Mix flour, ½ cup sugar, baking powder, and salt into large bowl.Combine egg, milk, and oil in small bowl.

Stir wet ingredients into flour mixture with fork until just moistened. Fold rhubarb and sliced strawberries into batter (it will look like a lot of fruit for the amount of batter, but it all works out!)

Fill well buttered muffin tins two-thirds full with batter. Press a strawberry half gently into the top of each muffin and sprinkle tops generously with sugar

Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes!

You can turn Ann T's blueberry poundcake muffins into "Ambrosia Muffins" by using maraschino cherries instead of blueberries. That's what I do in the winter when the blueberries are out of season. Yummy!

Our favourite chunky, healthy muffin that's a delicious breakfast food as well as a diet item:


3/4 cup All-Bran cereal
1 cup skim milk
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
Sweetener - equivalent to 1/3 cup sugar
2 teasp baking powder
1/2 teasp baking soda
1/4 teasp salt
1 teasp allspice
1/2 teasp cloves
1 1/2 cups
2/3 cup raisins
1 large apple peeled and cut into 1/4 inch cubes
1 low-cholesterol (omega-3) egg, lightly beaten
2 teasp vegetable oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1. Mix the All-Bran and skim milk in a bowl and let stand for a few minutes.

2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sweetener, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Stir in the oat bran, raisins and apple.

3. In a small bowl, combine the egg, vegetable oil and applesauce. Stir, along with the All-Bran mixture, into the dry ingredients.

4. Spoon the mixture into an oil-sprayed 12-muffin tray. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

My Notes:

You may have to find the oat bran in a diet or health food store
I used fructose for the sweetener but for anyone on a strict no-sugar diet use the artificial sweetener of your choice.
Otherwise non-dieters use granulated white sugar.
The mixture is thick and dry-ish. Keep stirring until all is well mixed and don't think you made a mistake in the amount of milk.
