Cinnamon Sugar Apple Muffins

Cinnamon Sugar Apple Muffins

Apple picking was the last thing on my mind this September due to the sauna-like weather we were having around here. When I finally got it together to check the Chudleigh’s schedule last week, I learned that Honeycrisp season is long gone (those are my favourite variety), but Fuji, Mutsu and Ambrosia were still available […]

Pumpkin Quinoa Muffins

I know there’s no topic more boring than the weather, but it’s really messing up my baking vibes this Fall. This should be the time of year where crisp, cool breezes are coming through my open windows, a pumpkin-scented candle is burning, and I’m happily in the kitchen baking the the day away. Instead, the […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Peanut Butter & Jelly Crumb Morning Muffins

October 25, 2015 Baked Sunday Mornings
PB&J Muffins

I’m a little behind, as the Baked Sunday Morning crew made these muffins two weeks ago. Two things though: a) that was Thanksgiving up here in Canada and I was baked out b) there was no way I was tackling today’s recipe. Not that I have anything against Baked Alaska, it’s just a fairly long […]

My Favourite Banana Muffins

In the 5 years I’ve been blogging, I can’t even count the number of times I’ve made these muffins. They are the epitome of comfort to me. My Mom made these all the time for us when we were growing up and I make them all the time now. The recipe comes from a cookbook […]

It’s Messy Baker Monday!!! Today a bunch of my blogging friends have gotten together to celebrate the new cookbook from our friend Charmian Christie.

Baked Sunday Mornings: Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins

Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins

I was just saying to someone yesterday that I often find that ugly desserts are the most delicious, and these muffins perfectly prove my point. From the outside they don’t look like much; kind of a naked cupcake with something mysterious bursting out the sides. But like a lot of things in life, it’s what’s […]

Apple Crisp Muffins

  Fun fact: the very first recipe I posted here on Planet Byn almost four years ago was for Oat & Apple Crumble Top Muffins.  There’s nothing wrong with that recipe, but there’s room in my life for more than one apple muffin! Last weekend my friend Aoife and I went apple picking at Chudleigh’s, […]

Royal Wedding Cookies + Tea & Tiaras Party

May 2, 2011 Breakfast

When you invite people over at 5am to watch the Royal Wedding, you better provide some good eats to make the visit worthwhile. Yes, I am one of those people who booked April 29th off work way back in November when Prince William & Kate’s wedding date was announced. My Mom, her friend Janet, and […]

Raspberry Jam, Scones & Mufffins

August 9, 2010 Breakfast

It’s a raspberry round-up y’all! I seem to have really missed the window for raspberries this summer – these seasonal fruits give me a little bit of stress, to be honest. When I went to the farmer’s market about a month ago, they were everywhere, but last week, not a raspberry in sight. I really […]

Oat & Apple Crumble Top Muffins

January 17, 2010 Muffins & Scones

  I thought I was going to start off with a series of Retro-blogs, but I made these muffins this morning and they are too good not to write about. If you have any Apple Crisp fans in your life (…ahem, Kristine…) they will love these muffins, which are filled with chunks of diced apple […]
