So you’re sick of the same breakfast routine or you’re just in the mood to bake something warm for a cold winter morning. That was me yesterday. I was up early and starving! I had wanted to make a batch of sticky buns but wasn’t willing to wait several hours before being able to devour them. Muffins only take about 35 minute start to finish if you move right along. 35 minutes was definitely doable!

So I whipped out my muffin recipe and went to town. Blueberry for Josh, some apple cinnamon and a few apple cinnamon cranberry. Basically, I divided up the muffin mixture into three parts and added my ingredients. This recipe allows you to start with the basics and then add whatever range of flavorings to complete the batch. The possibilities are pretty endless but I stick to the classics.
