Yesterday I made over *100* muffins! We are gearing up for some life changes and I wanted to have the freezer stocked with some easy snacks/breakfast foods. This will keep us from eating processed foods and spending on drive-thrus.
Here is a post about a similar Muffin Mania several years ago [it is mainly a bunch of muffin recipes]. This post has the basic instructions I use to adjust a regular muffin recipe to a 'soaked' recipe (scroll down past the practical life part).
These are the recipes that I made yesterday for our current Muffin Mania. The hardest part was actually saving them and getting them all the way into the freezer :).
Bread Pudding Muffins (could be made using soaked/sprouted bread but mine wasn't)
Oatmeal/Craisin Muffins (soaked)
I used the generic soaked muffin recipe from Nourishing Traditions (p. 482). I added in 1 finely diced mango.
Pumpkin Muffins (soaked)
Oh, and, of course, pumpkin cookies! I love this recipe. It's cakey, not sweet (I use 1/2 the amount posted) and filling for a snack. It is from Heavenly Homemakers here (I skip the frosting).
~ Today I baked 8 loaves of bread and 4 batches of rolls. 4 loaves and the rolls sort of flopped - It may have something to do wth the fact that I forgot to add the yeast (!) and had to re-knead the yeast into them. That's okay. I'm thinking of using the flat loaves for pizza by slicing them long-ways/side-ways (like an open-faced loaf).
~ We also made some mini mint brownie cups and boy were they good!! Dh had brought back some from some gathering that were pre-packaged (Should I put the brand? Better not). I cringed when I saw dc eat them and was inspired to try our own. Oldest dd made them. We added 1 extra tablespoon of flour to our brownie recipe and added 4 drops of peppermint oil. Delicious. Dh said that they tasted just like ___'s brand but without the weird aftertaste. Food should never have a weird aftertaste - that should be an alarm.
Tomorrow... It's another baking day. I'll be focusing on pita bread, tortillas, naan bread, and personal pizza crusts... Time to soak the batches!
