Muffin Mix

User Rating 4 Star Rating (3 Reviews)


This Muffin Mix makes a great gift nestled into a decorative basket along with a muffin tin, oven mitts, a timer, and some paper liners. Oh, and don't forget the recipe to use the mix! This recipe can also be used for savory muffins, adding cheese and even sauteed onions, if you cut the sugar to 3/4 cup and omit the cinnamon and cloves.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 8 cups


  • 5 cups flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup instant nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1/4 cup baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves


Mix in large bowl and store in air tight container.

To bake muffins, place 2 cups mix in a large bowl. Add 2/3 cup water, 1 slightly beaten egg and 1/4 cup oil and mix only until dry ingredients are moistened. Fill 12 paper lined muffin cups 1/2 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes until muffins are puffed and firm.

You could put a bit of jam on the top of the batter before baking. Or stir in 1/3 cup golden raisins when you add the egg, water, and oil. For savory muffins, stir in 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese, or saute 1/2 cup finely chopped onion in 1 tablespoons olive oil until tender, and add that along with the egg, water, and oil. If you're making savory muffins, be sure that you cut down on the sugar and left the spices out of the muffin mix.

Muffin Mix, Guest chinbent

Truly loved this recipe. My family generally eats whole wheat products so the flavour was perfect. I tested this recipe and once you put it in the oven at 200 degrees C for exactly 12 minutes you are good to go.
