2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar substitute*
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 large egg
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups plain low-fat yogurt
1 cup fresh blueberries
4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, cut into cubes
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup sugar substitute*

Directions

Yield: 12 servings.
Serving size: 1 cupcake.

1 – Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 12 muffin standard (2 1/2-inch) muffin pan cups with paper baking cups; spray baking cups with nonstick cooking spray.

2 – Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl.

3 – Beat sugar substitute, butter, and oil in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat in egg, lemon peel, and vanilla. Alternately add flour mixture and yogurt, beginning and ending with flour mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir in blueberries.

One of America’s Favorites – Muffin

July 23, 2018 at 5:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

A chocolate muffin

A muffin is an individual-sized, baked product. It can refer to two distinct items, a part-raised flatbread and a cupcake-like quickbread. The flatbread is of British or European derivation, and dates from at least the early 18th century, while the quickbread originated in North America during the 19th century. Both are common worldwide today.

Quickbread muffins (known in Britain as “American muffins” or simply as “muffins”) originated in the United States in the mid-19th century. The use of the term to describe what are essentially cup cakes or buns did not become common usage in Britain until the last decades of the 20th century on the back of the spread of coffee shops such as Starbucks. (There is lingering resistance in the UK to the term as being inapplicable to cakes.) They are similar to cupcakes in size and cooking methods, the main difference being that cupcakes tend to be sweet desserts using cake batter and which are often topped with sugar icing (American frosting). Muffins are available in both savoury varieties, such as cornmeal and cheese muffins, or sweet varieties such as blueberry, chocolate chip, lemon or banana flavours. They are often eaten as a breakfast food, often accompanied by coffee or tea. Fresh baked muffins are sold by bakeries, donut shops and some fast food restaurants and coffeehouses. Factory baked muffins are sold at grocery stores and convenience stores and are also served in some coffee shops and cafeterias.

Quickbread Muffin

Recipes for quick bread muffins are common in 19th-century American cookbooks. Recipes for yeast-based muffins, which were sometimes called “common muffins” or “wheat muffins” in 19th-century American cookbooks, can be found in much older cookbooks. In her Boston Cooking-School Cook Book, Fannie Farmer gave recipes for both types of muffins, both those that used yeast to raise the dough and those that used a quick bread method, using muffin rings to shape the English muffins. Farmer indicated that stove top “baking”, as is done with yeast dough, was a useful method when baking in an oven was not practical.

Our Top Healthy Recipes for Apples
From apple pie recipes to apple sauce recipes, our best apple recipes.

 

Apple Cupcakes with Cinnamon-Marshmallow Frosting
Shredded apple replaces some of the oil and keeps the cake moist in these cinnamon-spiked cupcakes. There is a generous amount of fluffy marshmallow frosting to mound or pipe on top for a festive look. Be sure to frost them right after you make the frosting–it stiffens as it stands and becomes more difficult to spread……

 

Apple Puffed Oven Pancake
Apple pie spice is a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves or ginger. If you don’t have any on hand, you can substitute cinnamon and a dash of cloves in the recipe…….

 

Apple-and-Leek-Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
Stuff pork tenderloin with apple and leek to take it from ordinary to elegant. Our easy method of tying the roast together keeps the filling inside while you brown and roast it. We use applejack, brandy made from apple cider, for depth of flavor in the pan sauce, but you can use 1/2 cup cider if you prefer……
