Basic Sweet Muffins

Our children especially love these muffins. We start with the basic muffin and then add any tasty ingredient everyone can agree on. Sometimes, it’s blueberries, sometimes chopped pecans or walnuts, and on special occasions, chocolate chips. We also have a wide variety of specialty shaped, silicone muffin bake ware. Serving these in a shape peculiar to the season makes these simple muffins seem elegant and special.
