Your best muffin recipe
I don't bake a lot but all week I have been thinking about muffins! So please share with me your favorite muffin recipe. Sweet or Savory. And bonus if they freeze well too!
The cooks illustrated recipe for any-fruit-will-do muffin, with applesauce instead of oil is the best i've ever made.
My mom's recipe for Oatmeal-Blueberry muffins - with frozen berries we picked the summer before - really define wintry mornings growing up for me. They're lightly sweet, with the tartness of the berries, hearty but not heavy, and pretty healthy!
1 1/3 c all purpose flour
3/4 c rolled oats
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 beaten egg
3/4 c milk
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1/4 c cooking oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 c fresh or frozen blueberries
In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla. Add egg mixture all at once to dry ingredients, mixing just until smooth - batter will be lumpy. Fold in blueberries.
Spoon batter into greased or lined muffin cups. Bake at 400 for 15-18 minutes or until done.
They're very best when they're warm - like many oatmeal muffins, they're not quite as light the next day. But warm, split in half with a dab of butter, they're really terrific!
