I’m a huge fan of breakfast, it’s easily my favorite meal of the day. My mom jokes that when I was a kid I would go to bed asking what was for breakfast the next morning. I’m also a huge fan of quick, easy recipes that only take one bowl and come out perfect every time. These Perfect Muffins are just that!
Jen from Yummy Healthy Easy posted these muffins on Instagram a few weeks ago, and I immediately knew I needed to make them. Don’t they just look like the perfect little muffin in need of a big slathering of real butter and fruit spread? I made them the very next morning, and I was not disappointed! I cut the recipe in half because six muffins are plenty for the four of us, but this recipe easily doubles to make a full dozen.
I love recipes like this that only take a few simple ingredients that I always have on hand and a few minutes time to throw together. These muffins are best served warm, right out of the oven but will also keep for a few days (if they last that long!) in a sealed container. Pop them in the microwave one at a time for a few seconds to warm them back up. We love to eat them with butter and strawberry spread.
