Saturday Morning Tradition

When the COVID-19 pandemic closed our local coffee and bake shop, I didn't want to miss out on our favorite Saturday morning tradition: fresh-baked muffins and coffee. With more time at home, I began re-creating my old muffin recipes from the tin box under my counter and reviving them with a little more spice, fruits, and old-fashioned ingredients that are both satisfying and hearty.

6 large muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups complete pancake mix
  • 1 cup uncooked oats
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup raisins

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Grease the bottoms of 6 large muffin cups (or if you prefer, line them with paper baking cups).
  3. In a bowl, combine the pancake mix, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, egg, vegetable oil, apple, and raisins. Stir.
  5. Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir by folding over the ingredients just until moistened.
  6. Divide the batter between six large muffin cups. Bake 15 to 20 minutes on the center rack of the oven. Muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Raisins and chunks of apple make these muffins not only scrumptious but also hearty.

I love old-school recipes. I've made oatmeal raisin cookies but, not the muffin. No doubt, these muffins are great for morning breakfast! They look delicious too. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
