Muffin Specialty?

I'm bringing muffins for the teachers at my son's school on Monday morning to kick off teacher appreciation week.

What is that one muffin recipe you make that others rave about?

The buttermilk makes these muffins nice and moist. The cranberries can be omitted. Just increase the buttermilk and oats to 1 1/2 cups each. Decrease the brown sugar to 1/2 cup and bake as directed.

Oatmeal Cranberry

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix and allow to soak for 10 minutes:

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup buttermilk

In a large bowl combine

2 eggs
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
Rolled oats mixture as prepared above
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a smaller bowl combine well:

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablepsooon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped

Combine wet and dry mixtures and fold together gently until just mixed. Fold in cranberries. Spoon into prepared pan. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 20 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on rack.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

Very few people make muffins here. They are available at bakeries etc, but they are not the same as in the States. People always rave about any muffins I make and are amazed that I go to so much trouble. Little do they know how easy it is.

I tend to make either carrot muffins or chocolate chip muffins. I like apples ones as well.

Apple and cinnamon are always good. Throw in some sultanas, or sour cream, or both and they go to the next level.

I like to use the cranberry bread recipe on the cranberry bag and make them into muffins. But anything with cranberries, oranges or lemon poppyseed are great. i don't like muffins that should be called cupcakes!!!

I like banana nut, in particular the ones at La Boulangerie (sp?) when I used to live in CA.
...and that's the way it is in northern Minnesota.

Cheese Danish Muffins


Here's a great recipe. I'd like to credit the source, but I copied it off a bulletin board and am not sure where it came from.

Cheese Danish Muffins

4 oz cream cheese -- softened
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 egg
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tsp grated lemon zest
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin. In a bowl, cream together cream cheese, sugar, and lemon juice. Set aside.

In another bowl, beat egg lightly with a fork; add milk, butter, and zest.

In another bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add egg mixture; stir just until blended.
Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin, filling half full. Place 1 Tbsp cream cheese mixture over each; top with remaining batter. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.
