Muffins are one of our favorite breakfast treats! Sometimes, I even like to indulge in them with an afternoon cup of coffee or tea! They are so easy, and kid friendly to make, too. What is your favorite type of muffin? Perhaps you’ll find a new flavor to try in this list of Muffin Recipes I put together for you!
Muffins are one of those special treats that my daughter and I like to bake together. My absolute favorite muffin flavor is Lemon Poppyseed with a nice vanilla glaze. So good! Making bakery style muffins makes me happy.
There are so many variations for muffins, and we have recently found some “better for you” recipes. These include Pumpkin Zucchini Muffins and Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins. The Cinnamon Oatmeal ones are great for breakfast. They are very hearty, and fill you up! Plus, they are easy to grab when you are going out the door or rushing around getting the kids ready for school. The Pumpkin Zucchini Muffins combine all my favorite fall flavors, plus they use up all that garden zucchini we seem to grow!
Tips for the Perfect Muffin:
First, do not overmix your batter. You just want the dry ingredients to be just moistened, so you only need about 10-12 stirs of batter. Muffin batter isn’t supposed to be smooth.
Fill your muffin cups about 3/4 of the way full. The muffins will rise while they bake, so leave room for that!
When you use liners, the outsides of your muffins will be softer. In turn, if you do not use liners, they will be a little more crispy. Also, liners are pretty! When you are preparing muffins to serve to friends, the liners make a cute touch.
Muffin cups take about 3 Tablespoons of batter. I tend to use an ice cream scoop to place the batter in the cups.
Finally, when adding fruit, it’s a good idea to toss it in a little bit of flour before adding it to the batter. This keeps it “floating” and it will bake evenly in your muffins ~ instead of sinking to the bottom.
