CHOW Recipe Challenge: Your Best Muffin Recipe!

Join in on the next Chow Recipe Challenge: your best muffin recipe. Whether healthy, fruit-filled, streusel-topped, or closer to a cupcake without frosting, just make it delicious. You have from Monday, April 18, until Monday, May 16, at 11:59 a.m. EST to submit your recipe and win a great prize package from CHOW and King Arthur Flour!

King Arthur Flour ( http://www.kingarthurflour.com/ ) is giving away their "totally muffin prize," including a King Arthur Flour exclusive USA Pans muffin pan, a dough whisk, a 5-pound bag of white whole wheat flour, a 5-pound bag of all-purpose flour, plus white tulip papers, orange-flavored dried cranberries, Lemon Bits, cinnamon mini baking chips, Maple Flav-R-Bites, Blueberry Jammy Bits, and a bottle of their exclusive Fiori di Sicilia. And don't forget the highly coveted CHOW T-shirt and spatula!

OK, ready? Got your muffin muse revved up? Here's how to enter: Use our recipe publishing tool ( http://www.chow.com/recipes/publish ) post your original recipe, then paste the link into this thread. Photos of your dish are encouraged.

The CHOW kitchen editors will select three runners-up. We'll make the three dishes, photograph them, and then ask you to vote for the winner. Check out our last winner ( http://www.chow.com/food-news/77096/t... ) for the best boneless, skinless chicken breast recipe.

      Or, just a generous gift certificate to shop at KA!

        ooh, i like that idea :) methinks this is going to be a very slow contest anyway, seeing as they planned it smack in the middle of Passover, thereby excluding anyone who observes the holiday...

        1. re: goodhealthgourmet

          ORIGINAL muffin recipes are challenging anyway. Personally, I'd get away from the fine print of original recipes and go with a best use of theme....but that's just me :)

          1. re: HillJ

            This has turned into a perfect storm of legal confusion and holiday goofs. The upshot: you will be able to submit recipes until May 16! I've edited the original post to reflect the new dates. So if you're not feeling muffin-friendly this week, perhaps you will the week after, or even the week after that?

          2. re: goodhealthgourmet

            We are indeed sorry about the Passover oversight. This solidifies my status as a bad Jew and tunnel-visioned lover of muffins. Our legal team says that we can't extend the challenge once it's already started. So creative, unleavened muffin recipes will be heartily accepted and if we don't get enough submissions we'll do the contest over.

            1. re: davina

              Passover and Easter Sunday...but I'm sure submissions will be made and enjoyed.

            1. Healthy Hummingbird Muffins - the publishing link didn't work the first time. Do I get extra credit for retyping the whole shebang? http://www.chow.com/recipes/29597-hea...
