These eggless muffins have a tender crumb and a pocket of strawberry jam baked inside. The cinnamon-oat streusel topping makes them so perfect for breakfast!I’m not sure why, but when I wake up in the morning it takes a while for my appetite to kick in. My husband on the other hand, is ready for breakfast the moment his feet hit the floor. His preference is something sweet – waffles, pancakes, English muffins with jam or cream cheese pastries. Those recipes usually require a good amount of eggs, butter, and milk. Since we’re still carefully conserving those items, I turned to pantry staples once again – and these muffins are the result!
The vanilla muffin batter is easy enough to whip together using a hand mixer, and it contains no eggs or butter. I used some canned evaporated milk in the recipe, but if you don’t have that on hand you can replace it with water, or even oat or nut milk.
A dollop of jam is swirled into the centers of the muffins, and then each muffin is topped with a generous amount of streusel. Good streusel usually contains butter, but I used vegetable shortening which was just fine, but a little crumbly. If you have two tablespoons of butter to spare, then use that instead!
I baked these in cupcake liners, which I prefer because clean-up is much easier.
This recipe can be endlessly varied with whatever jam you have on hand. I’m eyeing a jar of fig jam in the fridge that needs to be used for a second batch of muffins. I like these best warm, but not hot. Let them cool a little after you take them out of the oven, because the jam in the center is molten and will burn your tongue (I learned the hard way!).We really loved these, and I hope you will too!
Strawberry Jam Muffins with Cinnamon Oat StreuselYields 12 muffinsMuffins1 3/4 cup (210g) all-purpose flour3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar1 teaspoon baking powder1/2 teaspoon baking soda1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 cup (120ml)evaporated milk (can substitute water, oat or nut milk, or cow’s milk)1/3 cup (80ml) vegetable oil1 tablespoon white vinegar or cider vinegar1 teaspoon vanilla extract1/2 cup (120ml) water6 tablespoons strawberry jam or other jam (tested with Smucker’s Seedless Strawberry Jam)Streusel1/3 cup (40g) all-purpose flour1/3 cup (25g) old-fashioned oats1 tablespoon sugar1 tablespoon ground cinnamonPinch of salt2 tablespoons cold vegetable shortening (or cold butter or margarine)Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a standard cupcake pan with 12 paper liners.In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. Whisk to combine. Add the evaporated milk (or recommended substitution), oil, vinegar, and extract. Mix on low speed until thick. Add the water and mix again until the batter is smooth with a pourable consistency.In a small bowl, stir the jam with a spoon until smooth. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin and place about 1-2 teaspoons of jam in the centers of each cup of batter. Use a skewer to swirl the jam down into the batter (turn the batter over the jam with the skewer instead of swirling it throughout the batter).For the streusel, combine the flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine. Add the shortening and use a fork to mash the ingredients together until crumbles form.Divide streusel mixture among the tops of each muffin and transfer to the oven. Bake for 20-23 minutes, or until the tops are well puffed and spring back when pressed. Or test with a toothpick – it should come out with only jam clinging to the pick, and no uncooked batter.Let cool before serving. These are wonderful served warm, but hot-from-the-oven muffins will hold a pocket of molten jam, which will cause burns. Let them cool down before serving.Store in an air-tight cupcake keeper, or on a platter covered with plastic wrap.

This English Muffins recipe is cooked on a skillet and makes fluffy English Muffins full of the signature nooks and crannies we love.My Favorite English Muffins Recipe!When you’ve got four kids, you become a pro at quick and easy meals. Back in the day, I found myself going through loads of store bought English muffins because they make for a yummy, filling, and deliciously easy breakfast. Simply toast them and slather them up with butter and jam. Or, turn them into a breakfast sandwich with a fried egg and sausage patty. At dinnertime, well, my family is all about English muffin pizzas.It wasn’t long before I realized I’d have some major savings by making my English muffins at home! But, I psyched myself out. They’ve got to be hard to make, right?Wrong! They are so easy to make. They are lightly kneaded, only rise once, AND you won’t even need to turn on your oven. What Are English Muffins?When you think of English muffins, I’d bet you picture the signature nooks and crannies. I could just drool thinking about melted butter pooling in the large nooks and crannies. I bet you can, now, too. Are you picturing it? But, aside from nooks and crannies, what makes an English muffin an English muffin? Well, they’re not made in a cupcake or muffin tin. That’s it, really.If you go to England, they’re simply called muffins. And, what we call muffins are called American muffins or sweet muffins. Weird, right?!? Recipe IngredientsDon’t let these English muffins fool you! Aside from buttermilk and yeast, I’ll bet you’ve got everything you need at home right now!buttermilkbutterbread flourInstant Yeast saltsugareggcorn mealHow to Make English MuffinsMelt: In a microwave safe bowl heat the buttermilk and butter together in 30- second increments until the buttermilk is warm, reaching a temperature of 120°F – 130°F on an instant read thermometer. The buttermilk might separate and look curdled. Don’t worry, this is okay.Mix: Add the flour, yeast, salt, sugar, and egg into the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Pour in the buttermilk mixture and mix on low until combined. This should take about 1 minute. Remove the paddle attachment and replace it with the dough hook attachment. Turn mixer up to medium-high and mix for 5 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic. If you don’t have a dough hook attachment, you can knead the dough by hand on a lightly floured surface for 5-6 minutes. It will take about the same amount of time and you know your dough is ready when it’s smooth, elastic and bounces back when pressed lightly with 2 fingers.Rise: Form the dough into a ball, and cover the bowl with a towel. Place the bowl in a warm, draft free place in your kitchen and allow the dough to double in size. This will take 1-2 hours, depending on the warmth of your kitchen. If your oven has a proof setting, this can be used as well.Prep: Prepare a large baking pan by sprinkling it liberally with corn meal. Once you’ve done this, set the pan aside.Divide: Once the dough has doubled in size, remove it from the bowl and divide it into 16 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and flatten the ball until it’s about 3- inches in diameter. Place each into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with more corn meal. Cover the pan and let the dough rest for 20 minutes.Heat: Spray a griddle or large skillet lightly with nonstick spray, or coat it lightly with oil. Heat the pan on low and place the muffins onto the pan, working in batches, carefully transferring the muffins onto the griddle. You don’t want to handle them too much. This will cause them to deflate. Cook: Cook the muffins on each side for 7-10 minutes, until the crust on each side is golden brown and the center of the muffin reaches 180°F on an instant-read thermometer. If you don’t have an instant read thermometer, don’t stress! If your muffins cook in the skillet for 7-10 minutes on each side and are golden brown, they are pretty much guaranteed to be cooked. If the muffins are browning too quickly, place them in a 325°F oven on a parchment lined pan for 10 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly. Depending on the pan you use, this can happen and is not a problem at all!Cool: Allow the muffins to cool completely on a wire rack before using a fork to split them.Why Buttermilk?I get – hands down – the best English muffins using buttermilk. I’ve tried alllll the other options: whole milk, 2% milk, combinations of milk and water. Take it from me, buttermilk gets the best results. I really like the texture and flavor that buttermilk adds to my English muffins. The acidity in the buttermilk works really well with the yeast to rise and create a nice, airy dough. This is what gives my homemade English muffins the signature nooks and crannies we all loveDon’t worry if you don’t have buttermilk. You can quickly and easily make a buttermilk substitute right at home!What Happens If Your English Muffins Brown Too Quickly In Your Skillet?If the muffins are browning too quickly, don’t panic! Depending on the pan you use, this can happen and is not a problem at all! Simply, place them in a 325°F oven on a parchment lined pan for 10 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly. This can happen for loads of different reasons, but these are the most common:A dark pan like a cast iron skillet distributes and holds heat, which can lead to it getting too hot too quickly.Stove tops can heat on low at different temperatures. You might have an electric stove top, or a gas stove top…there’s no set temperature for “low” and temperatures may vary.If you’re working in batches, your skillet will be hotter on the second or third batch than the first, creating varying cook times.Tips for the Best English MuffinsIf you’re looking for my top tips for the best English muffins, I’ve got you, girl. Here are my suggestions:Allow the dough to rise to at least double in size. If the dough isn’t rising, just give it more time, and make sure it’s in a warm, draft-free place in your kitchen.Does your oven have a proof setting? If yes, this works great with this dough. Let that dough rest. Once you’ve allowed your dough to rest for 20- minutes after you’ve formed them into flattened balls try not to handle them too much. They will rise slightly and this is when all the air pockets form giving you the distinct interior texture of an English Muffin.Both kinds of yeast work. You can use regular yeast instead of instant yeast, you just need to give it more time to rise!If your English Muffins are browning too quickly on the stove top, just place them on a parchment lined baking sheet in a 325°F oven for 10 minutes to bake them.How To Fork Split An English MuffinPlease! Never cut an English muffin with a knife! When you do this, you lose all of the nooks and crannies. Instead, you should ALWAYS fork split your English muffins. Here’s how:Hold your English muffin in one hand and your fork in the other hand.Insert your fork into the side of the English muffin.Spin your English muffin while simultaneously moving your fork in and out until it arrives back at the place you started.The two sides should completely separate. Serving IdeasEnglish muffins make for a great breakfast. They’re super simple to toast and serve with butter or jam. You can also use them as the bread on your breakfast sandwich – egg and cheese; egg, cheese, and bacon; egg, cheese, and sausage – on an English muffin. Scrambled eggs, over easy eggs, I’ve even been known to sandwich an omelette filled with cheese between two slices of English muffin. YUM!My kids have always enjoyed them as mini pizzas, too. All you have to do is fork split them, spoon on your favorite sauce, and top with shredded mozzarella. Then pop them in the oven until toasted and the cheese is melted. You could use your English muffins as the bread for any sandwich, really. Peanut butter and jelly? Sure! BBQ pulled pork? Yep! Burger?How to Store English MuffinsNow, it’s not likely that I’ll eat 16 English muffins in one sitting. Hey, I said it’s not likely, but it’s definitely not impossible. If you do end up needing to store your English muffins, you have two options. First, you can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days. Or, you can freeze your leftover English muffins in a ziptop bag for 30 days. Don’t forget to label your freezer bag so you are sure when to use them. Allow them to thaw to room temperature before using them. PrintEnglish Muffins Description:Making English Muffins at home is so rewarding…and delicious!

Moist, packed with flavor and easy to make, this recipe starts with bran cereal and be prepped the night before!It’s great to have classic muffin recipes that always turn out great, so make sure to try my Blueberry Muffins and my Banana Muffins too!Bran Muffins Don’t Have To Be Boring!Forget what you have always thought about Bran Muffins. Yep, let all that go. If you grew up in a house where Bran Muffins meant dry, tasteless, “healthy” muffins we’re about to push all that to the side and start fresh. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I won’t say these aren’t healthier than a chocolate chip muffin…they certainly have more protein and fiber which is awesome. BUT I won’t bog you down or try and to trick you into thinking they’re health food. Especially if you spread on some butter which I believe is a non-negotiable. Plus, the Nutrition Facts are there in plain site below the recipe for all to see.They aren’t a bad option AT ALL. In fact, I feel confident serving these to my children for breakfast knowing that their bellies will be full because Bran Muffins are a rather hearty muffin option if we’re playing the comparison game.But my long-winded point here is to forget anything you thought you knew about Bran Muffins and make these. You will not be disappointed. The texture is dense, but moist. The flavor is subtly sweet in the best way possible, and the addition of turbinado sugar on top adds the perfect crunch!This Bran Muffin Recipe Is From the Cookbook Midwest Made!This is one of the many fantastic recipes from the book Midwest Made by Shauna Sever. I became online friends with Shauna many years ago and she has knocked it out of the park with her books like Marshmallow Madness, Real Sweet, and Pure Vanilla. Midwest Made is her latest and it’s a cozy blanket of a book filled with food from my childhood.There were so many recipes in this book that I wanted to feature, but I get asked SO frequently for a delicious Bran Muffin recipe, I knew it was the one I had to make first. And I was right. You guys are going to LOVE these muffins! Turbinado Sugar Mixing Bowl Muffin Pan How Do You Make Bran Muffins?This muffin recipe is ultra easy and you don’t need any special or fancy ingredients…no specific flours, or health-food-style ingredients. You make them all in one bowl, which is always a bonus and the “secret” bran ingredient is one you might not expect!Do You Use Cereal In Bran Muffins?The answer here is yes! Like I said, there are no fancy bran flour or bran meal in this recipe, it’s regular old bran cereal that you can easily (and cheaply) find in any supermarket! You might even have a box of it in your pantry that you need to use up and this is the PERFECT way to do so!You could even use Raisin Bran and pick out the raisins before you crush the cereal. You can easily add the raisins back into the batter later if you would like to make a Raisin Bran Muffin! How good does that sound?I simply pulverize the cereal in my blender or food processor. You could also use a zip-top bag and a rolling pin, just make sure you crush them up finely!This Bran Muffin Recipe Can Be Prepped the Night Before!One of the things that I absolutely love about this recipe is that you can prep it the night before. You need to let the batter rest for at least 4 hours, but overnight works too! The cereal needs time to soften up and absorb the moisture.Is the Batter Supposed To Be THAT Thick?Yep! After the batter rests it will be very thick. When you scoop it into your muffin tins it will be like a fluffy ice cream! And go ahead and fill those muffin tins up…while the batter rises while it bakes it doesn’t “spill” over like a traditional muffin. It puffs up and creates a crackly texture, which along with the turbinado sugar creates a lovely crunchy top.What Else Can I Add To Bran Muffins?This is a recipe begging for add-ins, so get creative!
