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!

  1. The cooks illustrated recipe for any-fruit-will-do muffin, with applesauce instead of oil is the best i've ever made.

    1. Check out this thread. Some great muffins here.

      1. 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!

        1. These muffins are famous. They are called Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins. Recipes are all over the Internet for them, so here is one link for one of them.

          They're delicious.


          1. Just baked these this morning for the first time...would definitely make them again...Pumpkin Ginger muffins, very moist! Not sure how they will freeze...they'll probably be gone by late today or tomorrow:
