Fresh Muffins – Who doesn’t love them?
I love that this version is a delicious cross between a muffin and a cake doughnut! They are light, fluffy , full of flavor and the tops are coated in buttery, cinnamon & sugar. What could be better??
I decided to create a new muffin recipe this week because I was having a friend over for coffee and she suggested we do brunch. I don’t know the last time I did brunch so I was totally up for the idea! I made these incredible muffins and a savory egg dish that I’ll be sharing in the coming weeks. Needless to say, Brunch was a big success!
Love Muffins? Why not try some of these muffin recipes right here on Erren’s Kitchen:
These Cinnamon Raisin Muffins are incredibly delicious! The light, moist and fluffy texture dotted with plum raisins go perfectly with the buttery cinnamon and nutmeg flavors.
I think the best part of these muffins is that they are so easy to make. No need for a mixer. You just need a bowl and a wooden spoon. It all gets combined in the same bowl! The recipe makes 6 large muffins. If you want more the recipe is easily doubled.
I hope you enjoy these delightful muffins. They would be great for breakfast, brunch or any time you’ve got a taste for something really special. Although they are really good cooled I have to say that you can’t beat them fresh from the oven!
They are really are outrageous! Now get baking a batch of your own, your taste buds will thank you! 🙂
