Don't forget it's all about our Moms this weekend!

If you're looking for some great Mom's Day ideas for breakfast
in bed, look no further. You don't have to go too fancy, even
a pot of hot steaming coffee or tea, her favorite paper, some
fresh fruit and some warm RASPBERRY POPPY SEED MUFFINS with
butter are sure to please her. You can serve the muffins in a
basket lines with a pretty cloth napkin and have some softened
butter for the side in a saucer. Of course a great finishing
touch is a single bud vase with one of her favorite flowers and
a handmade card. Then, sit with Mom as she enjoys her treats.

QUICK BREADS - Quick Change:

Almost any Quick bread can be also used to make muffins.
Instead of making into loaves just put the batter into muffin
cups and bake at a slightly higher temperature (about 10 degrees).

Muffins freeze well, re-heat in the microwave or oven as needed.

When adding fresh fruit to muffin batter either cut back on
the recipe’s liquid or drain off excess fruit juice. Crushed
strawberries are wonderful used in muffins but will make the
batter too thin if you do not adjust for their extra juice.

Use apple juice instead of water in your muffin recipe.

Quick nut breads will almost always crack on the top of the
loaf while baking. This is normal.
