Versatile Muffin Recipe

This is my best “basic” muffin recipe. It is fun to turn this basic batch into two or three different creations. Pure bliss – 3 different muffins in one simple baking session.

Cream together;

  • * ½ cup butter
  • * ¾ cup sugar

Beat in;

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 large ripe bananas


  • 2 cups flour mix
  • 2 tsp baking powder (yes I double this to 1 big heaping tbsp)
  • mix for a minute and half

This is the time to get creative! Separate the dough into two or three equal portions and add your favorite – just be sure if you add more liquid to equal that with the same amount of flour mix. I bake in mini muffin tins to maximize the chewy texture. 350 for about 15-20 min depending on your oven.

I’ve had good luck with the following additions;

  1. fresh or frozen blueberries – the best!
  2. zest and juice of 1 orange + ¼ cup flour mix + ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
  3. zest and juice of 1 lemon + 2 tbsp flour mix + frozen raspberries
  4. diced apple and sunflower seeds

Have Fun incorporating your favorite!
