    Basic muffin recipie

    i tried one and it is to eggy, plus it won't come out of the paper. Anyone have a recipie that works?

    Re: Basic muffin recipie

    yeah! i have this recipe for sweet muffins... i know what you mean by too eggy...

    1 egg beaten or you can use (1 heaping tablespoon of soy flour, plus i tblsp. water)
    1/2 cup milk ( i use 2% milk)
    1/4 cup vegetable oil ( i use 1/4 cup of unsweetend applesauce, or 1/4 cup canola & olive)
    1/2 cup of sugar or any sweetner, you may need to adjust to taste
    1and1/2 cups of self-rising flour ( buy at dollar general)

    preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    stir oil, milk, into beaten egg.
    next blend in with a fork, sugar and flour. stir just enough to moisten.
    mixture will be lumpy..
    fill greased muffin tins half full... i use (solid precreamed shortening to grease tins).
    bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
    yield: 8 medium muffins or 12 small muffins.

    this recipe has been used forever by my family... you can add frozen berries, nuts, etc.. just adjust liquids for juices.. we like it with crushed walnuts in the muffins, then we apply our favorite jam, my family has 3 different ones.... grape jam, orange marmalade, and strawberry preserves. hth.

        i just made some of these delicious muffins... i used 1/2 cup of left over strawberry glaze, handful of choco chips and i used powdered milk with water.... very yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


          Re: Basic muffin recipie

          On another BBS I belong to, someone posted this recipe. They said it was 3 weight watcher's points per muffin.. makes 12 bigger sized muffins...

          1 box chocolate cake mix
          1 15 oz can pumpkin puree

          Stir the two together (that is all that is in it) and bake in muffin tin according to directions... typically 25-35 mins on 350


            Re: Basic muffin recipie

            OOh the recipe above sounds good - I'm going to have to make that soon!


              Re: Basic muffin recipie

              you can use banana, carrot, prune any puree... i use stage 2 baby food.. bake it on 350 degrees for 45 minutes... delicious... weight watchers recipe i think.... any kind of cake mix.... i use cherry puree with chocolate cake mix.... pumpkin with chocolate cake mix... yellow cake mix with peach or pineapple puree... banana too..


                Re: Basic muffin recipie

                i purchased a muffin cookbook.... now i am into making mini muffins and freezing them for the kids... zucchini-carrot is yummmy...... mini muffins make great snacks anytime of day....


                  Re: Basic muffin recipie

                  do they freeze well? mine never freeze well...I am trying to figure out the science of it, pumpkin bread works great, but not my muffins...


                    Re: Basic muffin recipie

                    I have great recipes for oatmeal, bran, pumpkin, and some other types...what would you like? My favorite is a LARGE recipe, uses up old cereal, and very adaptable.

                    (I make 50 dozen muffins every 3 months...lots of recipes to use up anything that needs using!)


                      Re: Basic muffin recipie

                      oatmeal! except I need to know (I never knwo) what the difference is! oatmeal is not all created equal...I have some plain cause it was cheaper and I thought I woudl add the brown sugar myself (and I had been mixing the plain packet with the brown sugar packet to cut sweetness anyway)

                      but you can't add boiling water to the plain!

                      I don't know what to do with it...


                        Re: Basic muffin recipie

                        i make my mini-muffins and let them cool... remove from pan... wrap in tin foil... individually.. then i place in a sandwich baggie.. then i add each one into a bread bag... suck all air out with a straw.. then close bread bag with a twist tie and freeze.. they last for months.. i freeze chips, crackers, etc... this way.. tastes fresh.. after normal sit on the counter for a couple hours defrost.


                          Re: Basic muffin recipie

                          Okay, Bran or Oatmeal muffins, basic recipe (you can adjust sugar, etc.)

                          1 c flour (use whole wheat in bran muffins if you like)
                          1/2 tsp baking soda
                          1/2 tsp salt
                          1 tsp baking powder
                          1 c oatmeal or raw bran

                          1 egg beaten
                          1/2 c. brown sugar
                          3/4 c buttermilk (or just take regular milk, add 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, stir, and let it set for a minute)
                          1/4 c. salad oil
                          1/2 c raisins (optional, if your kids have issues, use chocolate chips or whatever sounds good!)

                          Mix dry ingredients together. Stir in brown sugar and oatmeal.

                          Combine milk and egg; blend in oil with a spoon. Add to dry ingredients, stirring only to blend. Bake in greased (PAM works) muffin tins at 400 degrees F for 15 - 20 minutes.

                          Tips...stirring only to blend...the baking soda/powder make bubbles, which is what makes muffins and batter breads rise. Beat out the bubbles, you have flat muffings. So, be gentle, and don't let them sit around until the bubbles break before you bake them. Kinda like a nice bubble bath.

                          Oatmeal types...instant oatmeal is fine, and more like flour. It absorbs liquid fast, so in baking, you need MORE liquid.

                          Regular old fashioned oats, absorb liquid as they cook, so more of a oat texture to the muffin, and less liquid required.

                          Toasted flavor, but slowest to absorb, because they are toasted dry.

                          The above recipe works with any of the oatmeals.


                            Re: Basic muffin recipie

                            If your pumpkin muffins are coming out eggy, either 1., you mean custardy, and it's too wet, or 2., you mean custardy, cuz' you are using the oven temp for bread and not muffins. You can use the bread recipe, but crank the oven up to 420-425 for 20 minutes or so; bread is usually 350 for an hour or so.

                            You didn't ask, but this is my Moms famous Pumpkin bread recipe...

                            3 c flour
                            1 tsp salt
                            2 tsp baking soda
                            2 tsp baking powder
                            2 tsp cinnamon
                            1 1/2 c salad oil (yes, you can substitute, but it's not the same)
                            2 c sugar
                            4 beaten eggs (again, you can use whites, etc., but it's not as rich)
                            1 c. chopped nuts
                            2 c pumpkin (can, but not a mix)

                            blend dry ingredients together. combine oil and sugar; mix well; add dry ingredients, eggs, pumpkins, and nuts. Pour into greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 F for 55 minutes.

                            For muffins, I use the same, but at 400 for 20 minutes, until golden...

                            Cool in the pans a few minutes to sweat them out, and they should pop out nicely.

                            Now you've got my nose in her recipe book, and I'm going to go make homemade English Muffins! Yum!
