The key to making great muffins is not overmixing the batter. Once the liquid ingredients are added to the dry, mix the batter by hand just until the flour is moistened, for no more than about ten seconds. Too much mixing can cause the muffins to be dry, tough or misshapen.
And if you want to spruce your muffins up a little bit, here's a recipe for a cinnamon streusel topping you can mix up in just a few seconds.
You get an extra charge from these Texas Brownies because they have coffee in them.

Joan says that she got this recipe from her aunt at a bridal shower in 1949. She says that the rolls freeze wonderfully and can be reheated in the microwave. Her other hint is that she also uses the dough as a refrigerator dough and bakes the rolls the next day.
Easy herbed biscuits are particularly good with poultry and pork. Feel free to vary the herbs to your tastes. Mayonnaise may seem an odd ingredient until you consider that it is made of eggs and oil. The batter is also great as a topping for pot pies in place of a rolled crust. Try substituting buttermilk for the milk to add a nice tangy flavor. Have your ingredients ready and mix up these biscuits as soon as the oven is hot. Incredibly fast and easy, with no rolling and cutting of dough.
This is the one I make all the time. I use the bread machine to make my dough and then bake in oven to get that rustic look. It rises nice and the crust and texture is great--give it a try. Prep time includes the total bread machine and rising time.
You can also make this in your KitchenAid mixer instead of the bread machine, using you kneading hook. Oil bowl cover let rise in a draft free spot.
Heres a new look at an old favorite. Yumm. I used 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/3 tsp of nutmeg, 1/2 a cup of brown sugar and a really good handful of raisins (not originally ask for at all). After all, isn't it the good stuff in the middle that makes a cinnamon bun?
From the Food and Cooking of Spain, Africa and the Middle East, posted for ZWT3. Especially good for serving with tagines or stews with lots of liquid that needs sopping up. I'm sure it would work well made with all white flour instead of the white/whole wheat blend. Prep time includes rising time.
This naan is from the New Vegetarian Epicure. With just four ingredients and no yeast, it is simple to mix up, but it is so soft and flavorful I figured I'd add it to the many recipes already posted. Prep time does not include 1 hour of "resting."
Step by easy step recipe for a Native American all-purpose flat bread dating back to the nineteenth century. Fry bread is considered a food of inter-tribal unity and is made at all Indian pow wows. It has a crispy outside and a chewy inside. Serve with butter & honey, powdered sugar, or cinnamon & sugar. Or add 'taco' ingredients to the top to make an Indian taco bread salad. You can also fill these with anything then fold them up to eat. Or simply serve plain with soup, stew, etc. *EDITED TO ADD: This is an old recipe and I know many of us no longer use so much salt - if that's the case for you then I suggest REDUCING THE SALT BY HALF.
We think this is the best white bread recipe ever! It is a tender bread with a slightly sweet taste. My dinner rolls using this dough are so good, everyone always loves them. It doesn't take to long to make them when the bread maker does most of the work. The cook time is listed for the rolls only because everyone's bread makers cooks at different rates. Mine is older and a regular loaf will take 4 hours and 10 minutes. I have found that 15 balls of dough fit perfectly in the 9X13 pan with sides touching after raising the 2nd time but they can be made whatever size you want. I hope you enjoy this great bread as much as we do.
I had some bananas that were becoming very ripe so I decided to make a banana bread. I wanted something with a twist so I added the peaches in. Smells wonderful, tastes great! Perfect with a cup of tea!
