Assorted Muffins for Mother’s Day Brunch

Mother's Day Brunch Muffins

I have cooked brunch and breakfast at least a gazillion times in my lifetime. It’s always hard to come up with recipes that please all of my eaters, aka boys. I started thinking about how much my boys like a box of assorted donuts.

But have I ever made assorted muffins? No! So I thought, would make a batch of assorted muffins. Don’t you think that would be a great idea for Mother’s Day Brunch?

Making these muffins was so much easier than I thought it would be. It really was easy! All I did was double a batch of my favorite muffin recipe and then searched my cupboards and refrigerator for muffin flavor ingredients.

Home Made Muffins

Don’t you think they look amazing? I ended up making four flavors of muffins from one double batch.

Normally I would have headed out to the grocery store to get all of the ingredients I needed. But since that isn’t an option right now, I got creative and made it work with what I could find.

Ingredients to Bake Muffins

Of course, I didn’t have any eggs, so I used one of my favorite substitutes. For every egg, you can substitute one-quarter cup of yogurt.

Most muffin recipes use the two bowl method. It’s simple because all you do is mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the liquid ingredients in another. Then you just mix the two together and you are pretty much done.

Two Bowl Cooking Method

I love using paper muffin liners instead of traditional muffin cups. So I filled one muffin pan with 12 muffin liners.

Four Mother’s Day Muffin Flavors in One Batch

After I made the muffin batter, I divided it into four equal portions.

Blueberry Lemon Muffins

The first type of muffins I made were Blueberry Lemon Muffins.

Brown Sugar Topping

I threw together a brown sugar topping with flour, cold butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

Next, I sprinkled some of the brown sugar topping on top of the muffins. I didn’t use too much because I wanted to be able to identify the flavors.

Next, I baked them in the oven at 400 degrees for about twenty minutes.
