Savory Muffin Recipes

Now we all love warm sweet muffins, but there are a group of muffins that never get any recognition. They are called savory muffins because they are not sweet. They can be a herb muffin or one with vegetables instead of fruit. These muffins are great to go with soup or a main course meal. They are just as easy to make as sweet muffins. This can be a great introduction for kids to baking.


General Information

The great thing about muffins is they are easy to make and require very little in the way of kitchen utensils. 2 bowls, one for the dry ingredients and one for the wet ingredients. A big spoon to stir them up. You will need a cupcake pan or a mini cupcake pan for your muffins. There are also special fluted pans you can buy to make your muffins fancy.

Muffins are intended to be a fast bread and so they don't bake a long time. The most important thing to remember about muffins is you don't want to mix them to much or they will become tough. 10-15 strokes is all that is needed. Your batter will be lumpy with traces of flour but that is exactly how you want it. An easy trick you can use to fill your cupcake pan is to use a ice cream scoop so that you only fill the cupcake pan 1/2 to 2/3 full.

If using a dark colored cupcake pan, you will want to reduce your temperature on the oven by 25 degrees. Dark colored pans conduct more heat and your muffins will bake faster so by reducing the heat they will bake all the way through. Bake in the center of a preheated oven. Muffins are done when a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
