Marvelous Muffins

These muffins are so moist and delicious – Jean gave me this recipe years ago and I have used it in so many variations … try it yourself!

Yield: 24 regular size muffins

Preheat oven to 400

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup margarine
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups mashed fruit
  • 2 tsp soda in 2 tbsp very hot water
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Combine flour and sugar, then using pastry blender cut margarine into dry ingredients.

Add beaten eggs to mashed fruit, soda/water mixture and vanilla.  Stir until well combined.

Gently toss wet with dry ingredients, taking care not to over mix.

Bake in greased muffin tins for 15-20 minutes, just until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

You can use any combination and variety of fruits here and they always turn out well.  Use your imagination with toppings also – sprinkle sugar/cinnamon over top before baking or give them a streusel topping!

Mexico Jan Feb 2012

We had a fantastic time with Hayley, Mike and Baby Sloan in Mexico!  Such good travel buddies …  A couple of days in Mexico city, then down to the beach at San Augustinillo for almost a week – then it was 1200 km in a little car … inland to many amazing sites – we loved it and made so many amazing memories.
