Strawberry Muffins

Looking for a yummy strawberry muffin recipe to use up your frozen strawberries? This is the perfect one!

Strawberry MuffinsMuffins are perfect year-round for a quick breakfast on-the-go or a sweet addition to an awesome school lunch. Don’t have time to whip these up from scratch? Check out this post and learn how to freeze muffins

From these warms muffins to a bowl of hot chili or soup, MOMables has enough recipes and ideas to see you through the fall—come and see! 

These muffins are very quick and easy to put together. You can have your kids help you out, and in no time, you’ll have some delicious muffins ready, straight out of the oven!

It may be difficult to wait, but trust me, you’ll want to let them cool down, or you’ll burn your tongue (not that I would know!). The turbinado sugar adds just a little bit of sweetness and crunch to the top of the muffin, which I particularly enjoy, but it is completely optional and can be omitted.

I usually prefer baking my muffins in either silicone baking cups, or directly in the pan, to reduce waste and to save money. For this recipe, I actually did have some liners in the pantry and decided to try out the recipe with them to see how they would bake. I determined that if you are using paper liners, I would add a bit of cooking spray to prevent the muffins from sticking, or you can scrape the stuck muffin parts off the liner with your teeth. My daughter prefers to do the latter.

But what happens when you get so excited that you make tons of batter? Well, freeze it for a quick breakfast for tomorrow or the next day! See How to Freeze Muffins here!

These muffins are also perfect to put inside your lunch box!

Glazed Cake Donut Muffin Recipe

Have you been looking for a glazed cake donut recipe that requires no special pan? Look no further. 
Glazed Cake Donut Muffins Recipe. So delicious you wont' miss donuts!

There is something about donuts that just makes the day feel special.  Maybe because it’s a sweet treat that feels like dessert for breakfast?  Yea, I think that might be it.

Making donuts at home is easy enough, but many recipes call for a special pan or even a special donut making kitchen gadget.  Today, I’m sharing a donut recipe that calls for nothing more than a good ol’ muffin pan and ingredients you are sure to already have sitting in your pantry.

Sound good?  I think so too.

The best part about this recipe is that now you can make donuts at home and even bring the kids into the kitchen to help using this simple recipe.

These donut muffins are perfect for a special breakfast (we love to make birthday breakfasts a notable occasion) or even for a delicious lunch box dessert.

Just a note about the flour used in this recipe…I often use Whole Wheat Pastry Flour in my baking as a substitute for all-purpose flour.  It is a flour made from a soft, winter wheat that works well when baking pastries, cakes and cookies giving them a much lighter texture than regular whole wheat flour.

Using whole wheat pastry flour is a great way to add more whole grains without the whole wheat taste or heaviness. If you don’t have whole wheat pastry flour, use regular all purpose flour.

Apple Pie Muffins

What if I showed you how to capture the scent and flavors of apple pie into a delicious muffin? This apple pie muffin recipe is delicious and smells heavenly.

There is just about nothing that brings my kids into the kitchen like the smell of baked goods.  Cookies, muffins, bread, you name it.  They come running, eyes bright, smiling.

“Whatcha bakin’ Mom?’ I love it.

After a summer break from baking fall always brings me right back to a baking frame of mind.  The aroma of cinnamon, apple and spices fill my kitchen with warmth…and children wanting to sample the goods.

This simple recipe doesn’t require pulling out the mixer.  Just a large mixing bowl, spoon and little stirring muscle.  The batter is thick, but the muffins are surprising light. If you don’t have apples on hand pears work well too.

These apple spice muffins are great for a quick snack, or side in your lunch packing arsenal.  They pair well with a thermos of warm soup, a salad or as a healthier dessert option.

And when you are done with these, be sure to whip up a batch of my Coffee Cake Muffins. These are made with a cinnamon swirl and are absolutely delightful.
