Simple Sugar Muffins

I rarely make something unique or creative, but when I do I typically need a basic recipe to go off of that I can expand on. Several weeks ago I modified a basic muffin recipe to make it a bit sweeter so I could add more good stuff to it. So, I thought I’d share that with you.

Simple Sugar Muffins

From this basic recipe is where I decide to get creative. Add in bananas, blueberries, raspberries, raisins or applesauce. Our favorite to to add about 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree and a little bit of pumpkin pie spice. Zadey loves them as is with some honey butter on top.

I rarely buy muffin mix in the store, but I always have fresh fruit on hand for the kids. When I think we’re not going to go through something before it spoils, I’ll bake these muffins and add whatever fruit we have to it. It means I don’t have to waste food and they’re quick and easy to make for breakfast in the morning.

If you want something more savory, instead of sweet, omit the sugar from the recipe and add precooked (and drained) sausage and cheese. Add just cheese and make it as a bread loaf to have a nice bread with dinner.

That’s the great thing about this recipe, it is so versatile that it allows you to get really creative, even when you’re not that great at creating (like me).

    I just love recipes like this. I make my own baking mix like Bisquik and keep it in an air tight container. With these homemade recipes, I love how versatile they are and you can make such simple changes for a whole new taste. Pinning!

    I love Bisquick because it is so versatile and you can make a lot of things with it by adding and adjusting ingredients — muffins, biscuits, pancakes, sausage balls, and on and on. :) Now I’m craving these sugar muffins!
