These muffins have so many good things in them, it's like a smorgasbord of delightful eating. Filled with energy-making good things, they are a delicious breakfast food or midday snack.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Sift flour, baking powder, salt, and all spices together. Mix in sugars and set aside in a large mixing bowl. Beat eggs, add oil and vanilla and mix well. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until all the flour is moistened. Add apple, coconut, raisins, pecans, and shredded carrots. Stir to mix well. Batter will be very thick.

Grease muffin tins with solid shortening like Crisco. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full.

This recipe makes 18-24 regular sized muffins or 24-36 small ones depending on size. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for about 25-30 minutes for the regular sized muffins, and 18-22 minutes for the small ones. Much depends on your own oven and the sizes of your muffin tins. Test for doneness.

I am looking for a good, moist, muffin recipe. I would like to make them Texas size, and use them as treats to share with co-workers. I have tried the ones in Betty Crocker recipe book, but didn't like them. I also would love to add chocolate chips to them. If someone would be willing to share a really good one that they have made. I would be grateful. Thanks.

Hi!
In my experience, if you substitute the milk in the recipe with yoghurt or sourcream and substitute an egg with a mashed, ripe banana, the muffins will be more moist.
Just look for a recipe you like and try. You can add chocolate chips to any muffin batter, just add them in the end.
Good luck!

Since zucchini is in abundance this time of year, I'd go that route. My coworkers love when I make the following muffins. I've thrown in nuts, dried cranberries, chocolate chips, etc.

1 t Cinnamon 1 t Baking Soda
1 t Salt 1 t Baking Powder
1/2 t Nutmeg

2 t Vanilla 3/4 C + 1 T Vegetable Oil
2 Eggs 2 1/2 C shredded Zucchini
1 C Buttermilk (I used 1 C milk + 1 T vinegar)

chopped pecans, if desired

Blend together dry ingredients. Fold in eggs, liquids and zucchini, mix well
350 degrees, 25 minutes

Greetings from southern Utah! When it comes to muffins, I've got you covered! I make a lot of muffins and haven't had a complaint yet! :)
I have a great recipe for Cocoa Applesauce Muffins that is oh-so-very yummy.
To make a batch of "Texas-sized" muffins,use the measurements that follow:
1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa
1/2 cup of canola oil
1 15-16oz. can of applesauce
2 jumbo eggs,beaten
2 1/2 cups wheat flour
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 raw sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a large-bowled electric mixer. Pre-heat oven to 375F. Butter muffin tins. Fill each cup 1/2 full with batter. Bake in oven for about 20 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in a muffin comes out clean. These are a very moist and delicious muffin. They are truly more like getting to have chocolate cake for breakfast!

When my now 14 year-old niece was little, I took care of her while her parents worked. She would hold out on having breakfast at home because she wanted to come to Aunt Charla's and see what I'd made for breakfast! These muffins are a true family favorite. I hope that you enjoy them.

If you want them Texas size purchase the over sized muffin pan. I use cake mix one of the better super moist one. The last time I made cup cakes I used one of the super moist chocolate one. I mixed according to the directions then added a small box of chocolate instant pudding mix and white and semi sweet chocolate morcels my grandson and his friends loved these I hope if you try them you will to. If you do a lemon or orange or strawberry kind use a box of flavored jello

Re: Charla's post of 10/07, how much sugar is used? It says 1 1/2 raw sugar-is this cups, tablespoons? Sounds really good, would like to have updated recipe. Thanks, jsham

I would love to have a simple, easy way to make muffins. For example, for poppy seed muffins, poppy seeds and lemon pudding, of course with other ingredients. Is this possible?

Try cake mixes, basic ones with pudding added. For lemon poppyseed, just add the poppy seeds to a lemon cake mix. You might have to experiment a little, maybe add some flour to make the dough more muffin-like. Adding more flour would also cut the sweetness a little too.

I am looking for a cherry muffin recipe similar to the one Lazarus department store used to make. The large moist muffins were the best muffins I've ever had.

While trying, unsuccessfully as it turns out, to find a recipe for someone at ThriftyFun, I did find this very unusual website: Uncle Phaedrus Consulting Detective and Finder Of Lost Recipes
www.hungrybrowser.com

They find videos, albums, trivia, books, hard to find items - it's really a fun site. They have a section called 'back of the box recipes', for example. Hope you have as much fun as I did exploring. I love the web; you never know what you're going to find!

I have a Lazarus Recipes book which I think was published around 1970. I thought sure your Cherry Muffin recipe would be in there. But, while there are several Muffin recipes, non of them have Cherries as an ingredient. There is a Cranberry, Orange, Apple Muffin recipe. Could it have been cranberries instead of cherries? jupindy AT yahoo.com
