Quick & Easy Gourmet Muffins

Diane Hopson Smith


This super easy recipe starts with one of those less than a $1 mixes. I used Martha White, added a few extra ingredients and wha la "Gourmet Muffins".

I found this recipe online and did some tweaking to my liking. It's a great muffin to have on hand for those busy mornings when you just don't have time for breakfast. Just grab a muffin, a cup of coffee and run!

Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Quick & Easy Gourmet Muffins


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line 6 jumbo muffin tins with paper liners.

    Rinse berries and gently blot with paper towels.

  3. Lightly dust berries with a light coating of flour and gently fold in batter, being careful not to burst berries.
  4. Fill muffin tins 3/4 full and add crumb topping or sprinkle with sugar if desired. .
  5. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Done when cake tester or tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean.
  6. CRANBERRY MUFFINS: I used Martha White's Blueberry Cheese Cake muffin mix and 1/2 of a 6-oz bag of frozen cranberries. Topped with a mixture of sugar and fresh grated lemon peel. NOTE: cranberries are tart and these muffins were tart. You would have to be a true cranberry lover to enjoy the tartness.
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    1 Tablespoon oatmeal
    pinch of salt
    3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

    Make the crumb topping by using a fork to combine the flour, brown sugar, and melted butter in a small bowl. Sprinkle each muffin with one tablespoon of the crumb topping
