Making Muffins

Ideal for quick and tasty snacks or breakfast-on-the-go, muffins are simple to prepare at home. They rely on leaveners like baking powder or baking soda rather than yeast, so you can whip up a batch of fresh-baked treats at a moment’s notice. Here we feature recipes for classic muffins as well as creative variations, from blueberry and honey-raisin bran to pear-ginger and cherry-chocolate. You’ll also find some savory muffins, including jalapeño-cornmeal and tomato with goat cheese.
