Orange and Date Muffins

Eyeing off a pile of oranges in my fruits bowl, I felt inspired to make something with them. The longer I bake, the more I’m convinced that citrus flavours are my favourite for baking and cooking. These muffins are delightfully simple and quick; an easy option to whip up for morning tea or brunch on…

Sticky Date Muffins with Warm Toffee Sauce

One cold, rainy weekend (yes, they do happen in Brisbane), I was browsing online for something sweet and comforting to make using only what I had in the pantry. I came across this recipe for sticky toffee muffins and was enticed immediately. Easy to put together, though they do make a few dishes, these were…

The title is a little misleading as it’s not my original recipe. My mother Maria, received this recipe from a parent of one of my sisters primary…

Vegan Apple Crumb Muffins

American Style Cornbread Muffins

I had a hankering for something savoury after all my cake baking and have recently been reading into American cooking. While I wasn’t inspired by anything in Jamie Oliver’s cook book (Jamie’s America), it did remind me of my Food Safari cook book. These muffins were featured in the USA section and described as “going…
