Wilbur, those Cream Cheese Danish sound awesome! Thanks!

I don't make muffins very often, but I have quite a few recipes. What I need is one of those silicone muffin pans, but they just give me the heebie jeebies.


Here's a favorite:

MORNING GLORY MUFFINS

2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
1 1/2 cups shredded apples
3/4 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup vegetable oil (I use peanut or canola)
1 teaspoon vanilla

IN medium bowl combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. IN separate bowl toss together carrots, apples, coconut, and pecans. Stir in eggs, oil, and vanilla.

ADD wet mixture to dry and stir until blended.

FILL tins 3/4 full and bake 18-20 minutes in 375 degree oven. Makes 12 large muffins or 18 regular size muffins (not mini).

LOL. Ah, don't let them scare you. I just bought a silicone muffin tin a few months ago, the kind with the rack, and love it. I made the mistake of washing it in the dishwasher, though. The next batches of whatever I made tasted like dish soap. So rinse by hand! Other than that, the silicone tins are great. I also bought a silicone tube pan and can't imagine how I lived without it.

I'm kind of a plain-Jane when it comes to muffins too. =P

Here's one that I make most often, it came off of the box of Hodgson Mill Wheat Bran. The batter keeps nicely in the fridge for two to three weeks and makes about two dozen total, so you can make a few here and there as the mood strikes you:

Bran Muffins
3 c unprocessed wheat bran
1 c boiling water
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c butter
2 1/2 c ap flour
2 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 eggs, beaten
2 c buttermilk

Mix 1 c wheat bran with 1 c boiling water; stir and let water absorb into the bran.

In a seperate bowl blend sugar and butter. Measure and combine flour, baking soda and salt. Combine the moist bran with the beaten eggs, the remaining 2 c of bran, buttermilk, blended suger-butter mixture, flour, soda and salt. Stir until well blended.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spoon batter into lightly greased muffin tins. Bake 15 minutes.


Here is one other muffin recipe that is unique. They're really pretty once baked and taste good too:

Blueberry-Raspberry Muffins

2 c flour
2 t baking soda
1 t salt
4 large eggs
2 c sour cream
2 c light brown sugar
2 c old fashioned rolled oats
1 c blueberrys
1 c raspberries
2 T sugar

Beat the eggs with the sour cream until thoroughly combined. In a medium pan over medium heat, melt the butter and brown sugar. Cool slightly & then beat into egg mixture. Stir in the oats. Fold in the flour mixture (Flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt). Very gently fold in the berries.

Fill the muffin tins 2/3 full. Drop a generous pinch of sugar on the top of the muffins. (I like to use the big sugar crystals instead of regular table suguar, because it looks nice; both taste the same though!)

Bake for 25-28 minutes @ 350 until edges are medium brown and tops are firm. Cool for five minutes and then remove from pan. Finish cooling them on a rack.

Makes 2 dozen

Okay, Wilbur, I just made your muffins.
(actually I made a double batch)
I experimented a bit, and in some I put abut 2 tsp of the "filling" and in the others, I put 2 tsp. inside and another 2 tsp. on the top. Both kinds are good, but I like the latter better. They puffed up higher too.

Thanks so much for this recipe!

Glad they worked out for you! Next time I make them, I'll try your variation.
