Baking with Dorie: Grain and Seed Muffins

Here we are at the beginning of a new year. The Christmas tree is down, everything is put away…wait, are those lights I see? Well, everything isn’t put away yet partially because we have all been sick for the last week. But, yesterday I was feeling better and feeling very motivated to get back in the kitchen.

Especially tasty with Bonne Maman jam from my advent calendar!

I was able to knock these Grain and Seed Muffins out quickly yesterday morning. I was very proud of myself and then realized I forgot the brown sugar. In my defense there are several ingredients I don’t normally have…and apparently I was still not thinking totally clearly. ­čśë When my hub, drawn my the delicious aroma, came to the kitchen and asked me what kind they were I said “seed muffins” and waited to tell him they had cranberries until he was about to eat one. He commented that they were good but not very sweet which is when I admitted to the accidentally omitted brown sugar. They did also include maple syrup though so there was not a complete lack of sweetness.

I also made dough for two different kinds of cookies, roasted veggies for Butternut Squash Soup, and made Cheese Puffers to go with the soup but those are for another post.

In the meantime, check out the muffins baked by the other TWD bakers! If you’d like to bake along pick up Dorie’s “Baking with Dorie” cookbook!

  1. Glad they turned out sweet enough. I love to see the topped with Bon Maman. Our favourite is blueberry


  2. Hope that you are all feeling all okay very soon. Hmmm…maybe not too sweet is not a bad thing, maybe say I might think half of the brown sugar amount would be nice…yours look beautiful. Especially with that lovely confiture. Looking forward to seeing your Cheese Puffers, too.


  3. Your muffins look delicious, in spite of the lack of sugar. Glad I’m not the only one to leave something out. I made cornbread last week and forgot the sugar. I served them to my husband with extra butter and no-one was the wiser.
