Did you know muffins and quick breads are really the same bread - just baked in different pans? Just a quick tip.

The secret to making a good muffin or quick bread is in the mixingThe batter should be stirred (never beaten) only until the dry ingredients are just incorporated.  The mixture will be rough and lumpy, but this is okay.

The remaining lumps will dissipate during baking. If the batter is over-stirred or beaten, the muffins will be small with cone-shaped tops. They may have tunnels running through them with a tough, rubbery texture. The texture and flavor both will suffer from improper mixing.

The batter should be placed in the greased pan and baked immediately after mixing. Allowing the batter to stand will result in a loss of leavening and an inferior muffin. If it is necessary to hold the muffins before baking, place them in the refrigerator for up to 20 minutes.

Muffins are really easy to make. The prep doesn't take long and the procedure is fast as well. You can bake them once you come home from work or perhaps in the afternoon to surprise your family with some homemade muffins for dessert. More of my best muffin recipes below...

Besides whole wheat flour, you can also experiment with different flours like bran and cornmeal, sample new sweeteners like molasses, white sugar, and brown sugar, and substitute milk with buttermilk or plain yogurt.

There are hundred different flavors you can make - just add raisins, orange zest, apples, strawberries, bananas, dried cranberries, chocolate and nuts.

I love muffins any time of the day; especially with a cup of coffee.  Some of the muffins already have a glaze on top, and some of them I warm up and slather with butter.  However you choose to eat them is totally up to you, but one thing is for certain - they are delicious.
