Tasty Tuesday: Master Muffin Mix

I have been on the hunt for a muffin mix I could make at home and have on hand, instead of buying "healthy" muffin mixes at the grocery store. I wanted one that tasted good and could be used for many different flavors of muffins. I found it! The ingredients are ones that you have around the house and this mix will keep for 6-8 months in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

Muffin Master Mix
  • 18 cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 cups granulated sugar*
  • 2 1/4 cups buttermilk blend or nonfat dry milk
  • 6 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoons ground nutmeg

Makes enough for about 5 batches of muffins, with each batch making about 24!

*If desired, sugar can be omitted, then stir in 1 cup honey for every 24 muffins as you make them.

To make 24 regular size muffins:
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Coat muffin tins with cooking spray or use liners.
  2. In a large bowl, beat: 4 eggs, 3 teaspoons vanilla extract, 2 cups water, 1 cup vegetable oil
  3. Stir in 5 1/2 cups muffin mix and any additional ingredients just until moistened. The batter should be lumpy. 
  4. Fill muffin tins 3/4 full. 
  5. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until muffins are golden brown.

Here are a couple of ideas for mix-ins (I will give you more as I try them!)

Applesauce Muffins: 1 cup applesauce - omit oil

Blueberry Muffins: 2 cups fresh or frozen rinsed blueberries

Peach Muffins: 2 cups fresh or 1 large can (drained) chopped peaches
