Williams Sonoma Muffin Cookbook
I rave about this Williams Sonoma Muffin Cookbook to everyone. It includes both sweet and savoury muffin recipes, with quick breads and cakes as well. I have tried out about 14 recipes so far and they have all turne out like the picture and been mega delicious. Too delicious sometimes because now my family want me to bake their favourites at least once a week.
I love the gorgeous example photo with each recipe, it's inspiring! The muffin recipes don't call for any exotic ingredients, just basic things that are always on hand and the instructions are clear. The muffins freeze really well ( I've tried orange poppyseed, choc chip, banana and walnut, cinnamon buttermilk, vanilla pear and blueberry) so I can double the muffin mix and individually freeze muffins for quick breakfasts. 35 seconds in the microwave and they taste so fresh it's almost like just baked!
All the Williams Sonoma series of cookbooks have detailed tips and instructions at the back. In the Williams Sonoma Muffins cooking book, this includes adjusting cooking times to make jumbo or mini muffins instead of standard size. There are short tips on the key ingredients (such as the difference between sweet and sour cherries and tips on buying them fresh, frozen or canned).
If you only need one muffin cookbook get the Williams Sonoma Muffin Cookbook. Once you've made a few batches of muffins using these recipes you'll be confident about making any ingredient substitutions according to your own tastes or dietary needs.
