Brown Sugar Muffins are a versatile accompaniment to so many meals! I especially love them served warm and paired with soups or salads. These muffins have a tender crumb and a caramel-like flavor.
Any time, any day!
Perfect anytime of the year, or any time of the day, brown sugar muffins are great with breakfast or brunch, and are a delicious snack on their own. We often serve them with soup. Potato cheese soup, carrot apple soup, vegetable soup -- you get the idea!
Makes 12 - 16
They are tender, and slightly sweet, and moist. A recipe from my close friend Robin, brown sugar muffins have become a staple at our house for decades. The recipe makes 12 really full muffins, or you can fill the muffin cups half full, and stretch the recipe to 16.
Ingredients and mixing method
Brown sugar, and butter make these muffins tender. These ingredients, plus vanilla, are also the flavor base for the muffins. When mixing, stir the ingredients just until the flour disappears. The batter will be slightly lumpy and that's OK. If you over mix the batter, you're muffins will be more tough and form peaks when baked.
Although they’re not pumpkin, brown sugar muffins remind me of fall. Try them with our recipe for Carrot Apple Soup. Or, try them with Creamy Italian Sausage, Potato & Kale Soup. They’re a great match!
