Simple muffins from scratch with a surprise filling. They are not too sweet. The original recipe also suggests substituting another fruit, or steamed carrots, for the plum filling. I tried it with blueberries, most of them stayed in the middle but they rose to the top on a few of the muffins. You could also use jam. For ZWT7, from ricettedalmondo.it
This is a basic muffin recipe that my mother used to make for us. I believe she got it from one of her old cookbooks, although I'm not sure. It's an easy recipe that is good for beginning bakers. It can be made less sweet to accompany savory meals (mom often served them with chili), or it can be made sweeter and fruit, such as blueberries, or other flavorings added to them. You can also adjust the amount of egg used. I like to make them with both eggs and about 2-4 T sugar.
Nothing better than biting into a moist chocolate cupcake and being surprised by a sweet creamy filling! Unless you're my husband, who doesn't like frosting. . . This is an adaptation of my MIL's recipe for Ho Ho Cupcakes. It is mostly from scratch, but can be simplified by substituting a can of your favorite prepared frosting for the tops of the cupcakes. These are a huge hit at my childrens’ birthday parties, with the adults as well as the kids!
How delish! I found the recipe in one of my brunch inspired recipe books. I like it especially because the ingredients are mostly staples from my pantry...I always have them on hand. I made these as a simple little gift of thanks for a friend and got rave reviews. Enjoy!
These are really good and make a great snack. My mom gave me this recipe to try and we agree it 's a keeper. You could substitute different fruit if you'd like with these. This is a double recipe that I use. I didn't use the walnuts when I made this.
