Delicious Breakfast Muffins

(Breakfast Breads – Doughnuts, Muffins, Biscuits & Coffee Cakes)

Happy Monday! It’s time once again for This Week’s Cravings. I did a really easy, but very delicious Breakfast Muffin for today, mostly because we had a super nutty and exhausting weekend and I had little time for much else. Don’t let the simplicity fool you though. They are delicious and can be extended by adding ingredients – chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit, etc. Change them up into whatever you want.

Yield: 12 -24

These are a wonderful way to start the day. You can add different things to change them up, making them very versatile.


  • 2 eggs
  • ⅔ c. oil
  • ⅔ c. sugar
  • 1 ½ c. flour
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 c. buttermilk
  • icing for topping - drizzle on top


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl or using your stand mixer, beat together the egg, oil, sugar, flour, baking powder, soda, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  2. Beat in the buttermilk. Gently stir in any extra's you want - nuts, dried or fresh fruit (blueberries or strawberries are especially delicious), raisins, oats or chocolate, butterscotch or vanilla chips. My favorite is actually peanut butter chips.
  3. Spoon the batter into the bottom of the prepared (spray or use cupcake wrappers) muffin tin.
  4. Bake for about 15-17 minutes, or until the muffins are a light golden colored and they spring back when touched with your finger. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool for about 10 minutes in the pan.
  5. Remove them to a wire rack - prepare some icing and drizzle it across the top. We usually eat these without icing, but of course the day I made this batch - we used icing. Enjoy!

I love the simplicity of these muffins. They look delicious, and I bet the buttermilk makes these muffins super moist. Thanks for sharing, Nicole.

I have all the ingredients for this recipe and I really do need to use up the buttermilk before it spoils. Great versatile recipe!
