When you bake muffins in an aluminum dish, you either put the
batter straight into the metal mold, or you use paper liners. Even if you
use paper liners, when the muffin bakes, it will stick to the paper and you will
have difficulty getting it out to eat all of it.
money on muffins by using a cooking spray on the paper liners before you put in
the batter. That way none of your muffins will go to waste. If you
are going to pay for the liners, at least make it a little more thrift friendly.
Here are a couple
frugal homemade muffin recipes:
4 cooking apples
3/4 cup brown
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup margarine,
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp nutmeg
Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one
at a time, beating well after each egg.
Mix the flour, soda, baking powder, salt and spices.
Sift. Add to the above, alternating with the buttermilk. Again, mix
well after each addition.
Put in muffin cups (about 2/3 full) and bake at 375 degrees
for 25 minutes.
1 cup butter
4 squares semisweet chocolate
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Melt the butter and chocolate in a double broiler or over low heat.
Mix together eggs, sugar, flour and vanilla. Combine with the
chocolate, and then add the nuts.
Bake at 350 degrees in greased muffin tins for 15 minutes. Muffins will
be firm, but the inside will be wet.
