I love these cottage cheese muffins. The recipe is from over 40 years ago! Our family has been making them forever! I think the original recipe was given to my mom by a friend of hers. Sometimes I would play mahjong with my mom’s group & her friend would make the Cottage Cheese Muffins to eat at the game. I always looked forward to them & playing with this group of lovely ladies. Her name was Ronnie & I think of her fondly whenever I make these Cottage Cheese Muffins
Why is it that we usually only eat pumpkin foods in the fall? I suppose that pumpkins go along with Halloween & the spices in pumpkin baked goods are “fall” flavours.Continue reading “Pumpkin Muffins”

And of course, maybe Starbucks had something to do with it offering their pumpkin lattes in the fall!Continue reading “Pumpkin Muffins”

Many years ago I was visiting my sister in California and she made these muffins. They are not too sweet, a bit dense and a perfect snack. Even though they are lemon muffins there is only a hint of lemon, which I like. As I was making these this morning, my friend was over and taste tested them for me…and ended up taking some home! They passed her test!!
Here is the recipe
Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp poppy seeds
1 tsp grated lemon peel
1 cup milk
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp lemon juice
Pre-heat oven to 400f
Grease a 12 cup muffin tin ( I sprayed them with cooking spray)
- Mix the butter and sugar together until well combined
- Add the egg, mix throughly
- In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, poppy seeds and lemon peel together.
- Add the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar/egg mixture, do not over-mix
- If mixing this by hand, stir in the milk. If using a mix master, while the machine is running, add the milk in a slow stream and mixing until incorporated into the batter
- Using a 1/4 cup scoop if you have one, ( or use a spoon) put equal amounts of batter into the prepared muffin tins
- Bake for 20-25 minutes
- While the muffins are baking, combine the topping by mixing the sugar and lemon juice together
- Remove the baked muffins and while they are hot brush the topping on
Yield is 12 muffins

This muffin recipe doesn’t have any eggs in it! At first I thought that perhaps there was a mistake in the recipe but decided that I would try to make them anyway.Continue reading “Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins”
