These muffins are really moist and really lemony. This is my oldest son's favorite muffin. The recipe come's from an old copy of Bon Appetite. My Dad always likes to add a few lemons into packages he sends us from California, which always makes these muffins extra special. 9-16-09 Since this was first posted it has become very difficult to find yogurt in the 8oz size so you either have to buy 2 6oz yogurts or add a little extra plain yogurt or a little sour cream. This is a very firm dough, not a loose batter like most muffins, but the muffins still come out nice and moist, enjoy!
I see no reason to make regular cornbread ever again--not when I can have this. The house smells heavenly, and this goes great with my chili. Recipe courtesy of The Best of Country Cooking 2010 and Judy Roland of Mount Holly, North Carolina.
This is my Grandmother's recipe for tortillas--she dictated it to me in very broken English! :) Panamanian Tortillas are completely unlike Mexican Tortillas. They are corn-based and are much thicker and have much more flavor. These can take a while to get down, especially the kneading and cooking, but they're more than worth it!! See my other recipe for Cheesy Panamanian Tortillas for next-day eating. If you make the masa before-hand, it will keep in the fridge for 2 or 3 days. For the more adventurous cook, try deep-frying or grilling instead of baking.
If you've never made a yeasted coffeecake, give it a try. It's a yummy cross between a pastry and a cake, with a delicious topping. It only has to rise for 45 minutes, so it's very do-able for weekends. (Rising time is included in the cooking time below.)
This is a recipe that is higher in fiber and slightly lower in fat than most of the ones already posted. I use whole wheat pastry flour and the shortening is the zero trans fat variety. This can be used just like Bisquick for making pancakes or biscuits. The recipe comes from The New American Diet cookbook.
This is my favorite muffin recipe. They come out so moist and delicious. My garden was over-run with zucchini so I made these muffins, froze them and had them through out the year. They freeze very well.
These muffins are delicious and have a great texture, and they are 100% healthy! No refined flour or sweeteners. We have a big family, so this recipe makes a lot of muffins, but it is easily halved for a smaller group. To make the muffins lower in fat, replace half of the oil with unsweetened applesauce. I also use "white whole-wheat" flour, which is softer than that made with red wheat (but has the exact same nutritional value).
