Incredibly moist and fluffy Fruit muffin recipe! These muffins are perfect pick me up with a cup of coffee in the morning!
I bake these Fruit Muffins all the time since I always have fresh fruit and sometimes we don’t eat all of it in time, so this is the best way to “reuse” that soft fruit you have leftover.
I have baked these few days before that monster Hurricane Irma was heading our way. I wanted to post but just didn’t have the time with all the preparation and worrying.
It was such a rough time for us; the anticipation, not knowing where exactly it will hit, then waiting for hours for the Monster to appear.
WHY DOES THE MONSTER HAVE TO COME AT NIGHT???? REALLY???
The Monster came at 2 AM, finally, we didn’t know what exactly going to happen. We have so many Beautiful, Tall trees right next to our house and lanai. Anything could have happened that night. It did for some of my neighbor’s, the Palm tree went through the lanai into the pool almost.
I can’t Thank God enough to spare us from what could have been. Even though we are Seasoned Floridians, been here more than 29 years, and specifically chose the Safer Side of Florida, you never know, as in this time! Very Scary experience for sure!
The good thing that I have cooked a lot before the storm and it didn’t feel as bad. We didn’t lose power, Thank God, and were able to enjoy the food.
Such precious moments baking with my son! Cook with your kids, you will always remember these moments!
- Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until golden. Mine was done in 20 min. Do Not overbake.
I did Over bake by a couple of minutes this time since I was in the hurry and didn’t watch the muffins during the last 5 min, as I should of. But, I got a rating of “9”, from 1 -10, from my son, LOL, so I hope the teacher liked them as well!
I’ve used Philadelphia Whipped Mixed Berry cream cheese in this recipe and anytime I make pancakes or my fruit cakes now. All you need is just a tablespoon or two of this Aromatic Goodness!
I prefer Reynolds StayBrite baking cups, no need to grease them, they just come right out after baking.
Another one that I add instead of the traditional Vanilla Extract is the Baileys Crème Brulée Coffee Creamer or any Vanilla Coffee Creamer I have on hand. I use it in coffee and in baking goods.
My idea is to always create as much flavor as possible in all of my recipes. They not only look good but taste Delicious, this is #1 for me!!!
Notes: The key to making fluffy muffins is not to over-mix the batter. Once the liquid ingredients are added to the dry, mix the batter until the flour is moistened. Too much mixing can cause the muffins to be dry and flat.
Make sure to use FRESH Baking powder as it loses most of its effectiveness after about six months. This helps your muffins to rise.
Perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning!
Served with a Homemade Strawberry Jam makes these muffins Absolutely Irresistible!!!
I’ve made a homemade jam by simmering diced strawberries with a little bit of grape juice and a tsp. of corn starch. Easy and Delish!
Once you bake these muffins and see how Easy and Delicious this recipe is, I’m sure it will become your Family’s Favorite as well!!
