Great basic muffin recipe
After reading the reviews I decided to add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and lemon zest to the recipe. It's a lovely tasting muffin, not difficult to make, the only thing was that it sticks the paper muffin cups in an unpleasant way that leaves much muffin on the paper than in one's mouth. Would muffin again.
cranberry blueberry muffins
have a question I'm gourmet cook would like to add Triple Sec to the cranberry /blueberry muffins about maybe 1 tsp . will that be okay to do that.
I made these but used chocolate chips instead of blueberries. Very good!!!
not following my own advice
A pet peeve of mine is when people review a recipe only to go on and say they "made a few adjustments" until it no longer resembles the recipe. However, I was going for a breakfast muffin and read that this was slightly bland. I was serving elderly people who have a decreased sense of taste and smell -this can accompany dementia...So... I added 2 packs of individual size instant cinnamon and spice oatmeal, 1/4 cup chopped walnuts ,a pinch of ground ginger, and I left out 1/8 cup flour. I was out of milk (I rarely use it) so I used half and half. I added about two tablespoons of orange juice too. I substituted one half of the oil with melted butter. Not so healthy, perhaps, but delicious! They weren't very sweet so I made a little glaze of melted butter, oj and powdered sugar for the tops and that made them more satisfying. The texture was great and our dementia group enjoyed them. Thank you for a great recipe to use as a base!
Perfect! I added a bit of vanilla and orange extracts. I would make them in a jumbo muffin pan the next time.
