I am preparing for my hubby to be gone quite a bit in the next two weeks so I have been very quiet. He will be going on two separate business trips and I will be at home with the three kiddos. I am trying to get my couponing trips in now so that I can try and avoid taking all three kids with me on a big outing....which could really test my sanity, lol! :)
Today is going to be a muffin making day. Hoping to get several different kinds made. Probably some banana chocolate chip and some apple cream cheese. Perhaps, if I am lucky, I will get some pumpkin chocolate chip done too.
Here are the first two recipes that I am going to be making. :) Enjoy!
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
1 ¼ cups mashed very ripe bananas (2 to 3 medium)
⅓ cup sugar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
⅓ cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 400ºF. Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups, or grease bottoms only of muffin cups.
Beat egg slightly in medium bowl; stir in remaining ingredients just until moistened. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
Bake about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Apple Cream Cheese Muffins
¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 ¾ cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
⅔ cup oil
¼ cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large apple, peeled, shredded (about 1 cup)
⅓ cup cream cheese (from 8-oz package)
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, softened
- 1Heat oven to 350°F. Line 15 muffin cups with paper baking cups. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar in the muffins for filling.
In large bowl with electric mixer, mix remaining brown sugar for muffins, 1 3/4 cups flour, the baking powder, cinnamon and salt on low speed until mixed. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the beaten egg for filling. Add oil, applesauce, vanilla and remaining egg to flour mixture. Beat on medium speed until mixed. With spoon, stir in apple.
In small bowl, mix cream cheese, the reserved 1 tablespoon brown sugar and reserved 1 tablespoon egg. Fill muffin cups slightly less than half full of batter. Top each with 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture. Top with spoonful of remaining batter to fill cups 2/3 full. In small bowl, mix all streusel ingredients; sprinkle over batter.
Bake 22 to 26 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan. Cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
