These muffins are so good; moist, soft, light, rich in flavor. This recipe is from my Ma, it is her Sour Cream Coffee Cake that I simply poured into muffin cups so that each child could have their own “cake.” My children love these muffins, since they get one all to themselves. But here is what is making me giddy…
Have you ever seen anything like it or do I just live under a rock? My local Whole Foods uses this product for their cupcakes and I hounded the baker there until she gave me the name of their supplier. After a few calls, I found NOVACART and they said that I should sample the products before purchasing to insure I liked them. They eagerly sent a few samples and I tried and I liked. These are Paper Ovenable Muffin Trays which come in trays of 24 or 12, I sampled the 12. They are perforated in order to be separated once baked or you may even bake as many muffins, cupcakes, or quiches as you want, you will need to place them on a tray for baking though. They are free standing, do not require grease, and are so cute with that little ruffle once separated from the frame.
Just think, no more washing those nasty muffin pans. Mine look so gross from all the years of baking in them. Another product of Novacart’s that I like is their Tulip Cups.
They come in three sizes and two colors; white or brown. I like the brown. I think anything made in these is glamorous. These do require muffin pans as they are not stand alone. Boo, back to washing but they are worth it!
In a large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients until well blended. Pour 1/3 cup into a standard paper muffin liners in a muffin pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 16 minutes or until toothpick come out clean. I like to sprinkle mine with cinnamon sugar before baking. Makes about 12-14 muffins.
