Marvelous Muffins by Everyday Gluten Free Gourmet

gluten free muffin round wpThese recipes are my long-time favourites that were originally made with wheat flour. I was surprised to notice that I have been making every one of these recipes for more than twenty years.

By using a seasonal ingredients when they are at their peak, they taste like they were meant to taste. Over time, you’ll learn that citrus season is at the beginning of the year, raspberries are at their peak in July and apples are falling off the trees in September.

muffins that taste like donutsMuffins That Taste Like Donuts

This is when people start talking about Amusement Park Food and ‘Those Little Donuts’ covered in cinnamon-sugar. These remind me of the donut holes my grandmother used to make, I think I might try deep frying them and see what happens.

I pick raspberries from my garden to make these muffins in the summer. In the winter I do a savoury version with cheddar cheese, bacon, jalapenos or jalapeno jelly. So many options.

The arrival of Mandarin oranges marks the beginning of citrus season. Cranberries are also plentiful so I make these muffins right through until the end of January. With a little tweaking of the recipe this makes a fabulous bundt cake.

Professional bakers and connoisseurs will argue that muffins and cake are not the same. Technically I agree, but as an everyday cook, I like to make recipes that work and repeat the ones that taste great. You can vary them all to suit your taste and call them whatever you like.
