Classic Muffin Recipe

A classic muffin recipe: a sweet, but not too sweet way to start your day or the perfect snack!

sweet muffin recipe with sprinkles

A couple weeks ago, one of my readers commented on my Sweet Bread recipe with a recommendation for readers, which I love! I had always hoped this would be a place where we could share our experiences, help one another with recipes, decorating ideas, sources and more, so please chime in! I love hearing from you and know others do, too!

Anyway, he said “I made the bread and it was delish, but I wanted less mess (in terms of cutting it because of crumbs and whatnot) and to be able to take it in my lunch easier. So I tried making them into muffins, and trying not to brag, but it was an awesome idea. It eliminates the issue of end pieces (my family hates end pieces) and they are the perfect size with less mess”.


So, I tested, and yes, they were good. Definitely best in a standard muffin tin rather than mini muffins because they have a more bread-like consistency. In an effort to fill a need while making perfect muffins, I developed a new muffin recipe. Thank you so much for the inspiration, Luke! My girls love them and I do, too!

Not only is this muffin recipe simple and sweet, but it can be adapted for each season with the addition of crystal sprinkles. Life sure is sweeter with sprinkles, isn’t it? In lieu of sprinkles you can always dip in butter and sugar while warm, or sprinkle a little on top just before baking.

  1. Great recipe! Fluffy texture and good flavour.

    I had problems getting the decorations to stick to the top. Not sure what I did wrong. Should I have waited until they were cold before doing the butter then sprinkles dip?

    I actually used thin coconut milk and a tablespoon of coconut extract as I had run out of milk! The coconut flavour was subtle and delicious. Will make again and ice with a lemon icing and top with toasted flaked coconut. 

    Thanks for this recipe 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
