Mother’s Day Brunch Muffins

I made a batch of assorted muffins and created four different flavors. They were such hit with the family that we will be making these for Mother’s Day Brunch for sure!

 Mother's Day Brunch Muffins Recipe

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?

Today I have joined some wonderful bloggers and we have put together some of our favorite recipes for Mother’s Day Brunch. Be sure to scroll to the bottom to see what they have made!

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.

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

Home Made Muffins

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.

White Paper Muffin Cups

I wanted to share some of my favorite items I love to bake with.

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

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

Next, I made Raspberry Orange Muffins.

Raspberry Orange Muffin Batter

Because we had some really overripe bananas, I made Banana Muffins.

The last muffins I made were Cinnamon Muffins.

Cinnamon Muffin Recipe

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

Brown Sugar Muffin Topping

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.

Four Muffin Flavors

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

Don’t these look wonderful?

  1. Leslie,
    Wow! These muffins look delicious. Thank you for giving us this recipe.
    Enjoy your week.

  2. I love the muffin liners but not at $87.00 Canadian! Even with free delivery I will stick to the Dollar store muffin cups.

      1. I used your link and that is the amount that came up from Amazon. I will investigate further. There must be a Canadian source for the liners. I am looking forward to trying your recipe whether I have the liners or not.

  3. Brilliant! I’m thinking home made liners using parchment paper could add a personal touch or maybe use food coloring to paint an ingredient. Oh boy, I think cutting fun edging using my decorative border scissors like when I was little and cut a snowflake. Hey, the kids could help with this part. You have inspired a whole afternoon of fun. Thanks!

  4. Love the new layout of the blog! It seriously is one of the best as far as navigation and layout, plus all your amazing content! So many wonderful ideas and inspiration Leslie!
