I’m sharing 3 muffin recipes with you today because you can make them year round. I love them for breakfast, snacks, and brunch get-togethers. Mark and I had to pick up some muffins for about 150 people for a picnic at the park in our neighborhood a few weeks ago. Homemade ones are so much better than store-bought ones, but life is too hectic to make that many. We served breakfast to families which included muffins, juice, bananas, milk, and chocolate milk. The chocolate milk went really fast as well as the store purchased muffins. You know when you go a few months and you forget how good a moist breakfast cupcake is, that’s what I call them, you know it’s time to bake some.

These 3 muffin recipes are can be made with ingredients from your pantry. Please teach your children to cook from scratch. If your grandchildren or nieces or nephews live close to you they would love to grab a bowl and mix up a batch, I promise. I use bread flour because that’s all I store. Yes, you can use regular enriched white flour. Cupcake/Muffins Liners and Silicone Liners

    Thanks Linda. These look easy and yummy. Best of all, when I make it from scratch I can use my GF flour so the whole family can enjoy them.

    My favorite muffin is a pumpkin muffin. Of course, it is NOT made from scratch but it is so easy, moist and delicious. All it takes is a can of pumpkin puree (I have used the same quantity of home grown pumpkin puree) and a spice (or carrot) cake mix. Mix the puree and dry cake mix together (I also add more pumpkin pie spice). Portion the mixture in 12 muffin cups and bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes.

    If you want to make these from scratch, you would just need to use a basic cake mix (just the dry ingredients) and spices to your own taste and the pumpkin puree.

    I should try this: the cake mix and applesauce – hmmmm!

      Oh, Leanne, I call that partially made from scratch, I LOVE it! I could make muffins even faster! Oh, applesauce muffins sound yummy. Is it the small can of pumpkin puree? I still buy the large cans even though no one but my husband and I live here. LOL! Mine is the 29-ounce size, is that the one you use with a cake mix? Thank you!!!! Linda
