Hi Bold Bakers!
You asked, “Can you make Crazy Muffins?” and I said OF COURSE! One of my favorite things to do is create master recipes for classics we all know and love that allow you Bold Bakers to get creative and make things your own. My recipe for Crazy Muffins allow you to do just that. Similar to my super popular Crazy Cookie Dough Recipe and Crazy Dough Bread Series, this Crazy Muffins Recipe is the be all and end all of muffins.
When I think of the ultimate muffin I think of a giant bakery style creation complete with a super tall crackly muffin top and fabulous moist interior. These Crazy Muffins are all that and SO much more. What makes these muffins crazy? It is the perfect ratio of flour, sugar, egg, vegetable oil and buttermilk so every muffin has the perfect texture, just the right amount of sweetness, and a big and bold muffin top.
Just like my Crazy Dough and Crazy Cookie recipes, this recipe starts with a plain vanilla base flavor that allows you to add in whatever you fancy to create your favorite bakery style muffin at home. All the recipes for the flavors below are just suggestions. Get creative and be BOLD!
Blueberry and Oat Muffins
Sweet blueberries add incredible color and lovely natural sweetness while the oats make this a go-to breakfast muffin.
Double Chocolate Muffins
Deep cocoa powder and chocolate chips make this the boldest of the bunch.
Apple Cinnamon Muffins
Grated apple gives you a fresh fruit flavor and the Cinnamon adds roasty toasty warmth to these Apple Cinnamon Muffins.
Carrot Cake Muffins
Just a bit of grated carrot, cinnamon and raisins are added to your base Muffin batter to make the ultimate Carrot Cake Muffins!
Lemon and Poppy Seed Muffins
Tart and sweet, these Lemon and Poppy Seed Muffins will start your day out right.
Banana Nut Muffins
Mashed banana and chopped nuts are all you need to make my hearty and wholesome Banana Nut Muffins.
The beauty of this Crazy Muffins recipe, and all my other crazy recipes is that you to start with a blank canvas. This allows you to get creative, and experiment with your own additions to my Crazy Muffins.
