I promise I will add pictures to these posts as soon as I can. With all the home canning and pouching I have been doing, extra baking is just not on the agenda most days. I also have to watch how much I bake since it is just my hubby and me home most of the time.

First, I just realized that the Parmesan Chicken I posted in April can easily be done as a mix. Click HERE to review that post with a few added notes to help you.

Next I wanted to share my favorite muffin recipe. Remember the numbers in blue are the quadrupled amounts to make a mix for future use.


Dry Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 c. flour (half white and half whole wheat is my favorite)
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1/4 t. salt
Wet Ingredients
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1/3 c. oil
Mix all the dry stuff in a bowl. Make a well in the middle of it. Add all of the wet ingredients in at once. Mix just until moist. It needs to be lumpy or the muffins will be dry, never quite figured out why this is, but I do know that you want those lumps, or lots of milk to wash them down ;- { Fill greased or paper lined muffin tin, 2/3 full. Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes, just until the tops are light golden brown.

Now for the fun stuff! I love to put just about any kind of fruit, finely diced into these!
  • Peaches,
  • cherries,
  • blueberries (of course),
  • pineapple,
  • chopped dried apricots,
  • raisins,
  • craisins, with cinnamon and orange peel
  • apples, chopped or dried granules
  • orange peel with a little orange juice concentrate in the liquid
  • chopped nuts
Toppings can be fun as well.
  • brown sugar, mixed with some cinnamon. Sprinkle on before baking.
  • frostings of all kinds, thinned to make a glaze to drizzle over the top
  • 1 3/4 c. flour (half white and half whole wheat is my favorite) 7 cups
  • 1/2 c. sugar 2 cups
  • 2 1/2 t. baking powder 1/4 cup
  • 1/4 t. salt 1 teaspoon
  • 1/3 c. non-instant powered milk 1 1/3 c. milk powder
  • 1 T. powdered egg whites or whole eggs 1/4 c. egg powder
Wet Ingredients
  • 3/4 c. water
  • 1/3 c. oil
If you are using the mix, measure 3 cups of the dry mix. Place in a bowl, make a well in the middle and add the wet ingredients all at once. Finish as the original recipe.
