12 Fantastic Muffin Recipes
It almost doesn’t matter what I put in a muffin; Ella will eat it. Something about the smell of a baked good and the convenient portion draw her in every time.
Plus, she loves to help make them. From dumping in ingredients, to turning on the KitchenAid, to watching me scoop the batter into the pan, to licking the spoon afterward, she is enthralled.
And I’m equally a sucker for muffins – they make a gorgeous display at a baby shower, a quick breakfast for adults and kids, and a great little afternoon snack. Some muffins even satiate my desire for dessert after dinner. Plus, baking them is a great activity to do with your toddler on a fall morning or afternoon. What more could you ask for?
Here are twelve excellent choices, no matter what you’re using these muffins for:
