Everybody loves muffins and your bread machine can make the basic batter easy to make.  We’re going to cover a basic muffin recipe and then ways to easily enhance them with blueberries, chocolate chips, coconut and good old, plain muffins.

It’s important to note that muffins are made from a batter using baking powder as a rising agent.  As a result, you want to careful about the setting you use on your bread machine.  A pasta dough or cookie dough setting is best.  That’s because they don’t have a heated, rising cycle typically used for a yeast bread or yeast dough.  If your bread machine only has a basic dough setting you can use that to make the muffin batter but remove the batter before the rising cycle begins.

Ultimately, you’ll be finishing your muffins in the oven in muffin cups.  A muffin pan is a good idea to hold the muffing cups and you can add various ingredients to the bottom and the top of any muffin to create some nice varieties.  We’ve dropped some chocolate chips into some muffin cups along with some blueberries and shave coconut and then topped the batter with the same.  It’s great to pull you muffin pans out of the oven and have a variety of muffin flavors to enjoy.

INGREDIENTS:
 1 cup of milk
 1 cup of buttermilk
 1 teaspoon of salt
 4 tablespoons of sugar
 2 eggs
 ½ cup of melted butter
 1 tablespoons of baking powder
 4 cups of all-purpose flour
DIRECTIONS:
1

Put all of the ingredients into the bread pan of the bread machine in the order indicated and select either the pasta dough setting or the cookie dough setting. If your machine doesn’t have these setting, select the basic dough setting but stop the machine after the mixing and kneading cycle and before the rising cycle begins.

Creating muffin varieties is very simply once you have the basic batter prepared. This recipe calls for two 12-cup muffin pans. Place a cupcake liner into each muffin cup and then you can explore options. I like to put some blueberries into 6 cups, some chocolate chips into another 6 and finally some shredded coconut into 6 more. I’ll leave the last 6 cups empty for a basic muffin.

3

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit or 190 degrees Celsius. Now it’s time to get the batter into the cups. After you’ve dropped in your flavor additions, spoon the batter into the cups until they’re 2/3 full and then top with more of your flavor ingredients. Try to remember which cups had the blueberries or chocolate chips unless you want to have a medley of flavors.

4

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the tops of the muffins are browned. Let rest for 5 minutes and dig in.
