This is my go-to muffin recipe at the moment, but every time I've made it so far I've engineered it from a semi-related recipe for much richer and fancier lemon-berry-streusel muffins. It occurred to me that I could write my version down, and if I was going to write it down, why not here?

Dietary and accessibility notes: These are not vegan muffins, and unfortunately, I don't have the vegan baking expertise to suggest how they could become vegan. The recipe requires some stirring/whisking and spooning batter into muffin cups, but nothing so demanding that I feel my lack of an electric mixer, although it would certainly be possible to use one.

So today I got back from a long trip to find bare cupboards, and a hankering for something fresh and tasty for breakfast. Preferably also hot...

We *did* have blueberries and eggs, somehow, along with stock pantry items such as whole wheat pastry flour (yet somehow not all purpose flour?). I made blueberry muffins, altering a recipe I found online. Thus, "Substitution Sunday Blueberry Muffins were born."

Read on for the recipe and a glorious photograph, as well as a link to the original recipe )

I found the brown sugar and whole wheat worked really well together, as it gave the muffins a sugary crunch that contrasted nicely with warm exploding blueberry goodness. Om nom nom indeed.

This recipe is from Marion Cunningham's The Breakfast Book. I saw a very similar recipe at Smitten Kitchen that used butter instead of shortening and mini-muffin pans instead of a standard size. The recipe claims it makes 12 but I've never gotten more than 10 out of it. My family loves these.

Wet cold autumn day outside, warm spicy sweet muffins inside.  Pour a cup of tea and you have the perfect snack for curling up with a blanket and a good book.

I have some wild blueberries (frozen) and I want to make muffins.  However, the last time I made the recipe that I have, I was less than impressed with it.  It was fine.  I want something better than fine.  I want fabulous!  So, since my last request for mac 'n cheese recipes was all kinds of successful, I come to you on my knees asking for blueberry muffin recipes.

Ingredients for 24 cupcakes:
0.75 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1.5 cups self-raising flour
0.3 cups unsalted butter
3 large bananas
24 pieces of butter fudge

Preheat oven to 175 C/Gas 4.

1. Whisk egg and sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Whisk in melted (cooled) butter.
3. Sift in flour, whisk again.
4. Add egg slowly, continue whisking.
5. Beat in mashed bananas.
6. Spoon evenly into cupcake cases.

Once the cupcake mix is in the cases, cut 12 of the pieces of fudge in half and push each half piece into the tops of the cupcakes. Bake for 16-20 mins, or until golden and springy to the touch. (Obvious statement about skewering them and making sure the inside is cooked here.)

Once they’re baked, allow them to cool and then melt more fudge using a bain-marie and spoon the melted fudge into the hole left by the fudge pieces during baking.

Finally: nom.

This is the Tamarack Blueberry Muffin recipe from 500 Treasured Country Recipes from Martha Storey and Friends. This evening, I replaced the fresh blueberries with frozen raspberries (a bag and a half of 'em), but I have made them with blueberries before.

PS: That book I linked to above, the Martha Storey one? It is one of the most reliable and consistently good cookbooks I own. If you have one cookbook, you should have that one.

My mom slapped about 8 bananas on the counter and said we needed to do something with them, so I logged on to (where I get a LOT of recipes) and did a search for 'ripe bananas'. There were several promising recipes, but I really liked this one b/c it seemed fairly simple and we had all of the stuff for them:

Banana Crunch Muffins - omnomnom )

When I made these, I omitted the walnuts (b/c I don't like them), and had to make a slight substitution on the granola b/c we only had 1/4 cup, so I filled the rest of the cup with quick oats and sliced almonds. I put both almonds and coconut on top before baking. These are soooo good!

I have a request. I bake LOTS of muffins. They're my midmorning snack, almost every day, so my tummy doesn't cave in between the 6 AM wake-up and the 1 PM lunch break. I'm always looking for new recipes. Beneath the cut, I'm going to post a whole bunch of my favourites, and I would love it if, in return, you guys would post yours, either in the comments, or in new posts, if you've got lots of favourites, like me. I love everything from healthy, breakfasty muffins to desserts in disguise, although I usually halve the sugar in new cookbook recipes. Bleh, give the other flavours a chance!

Thank you for your assistance in this important matter.
