Autumn Muffins To Fall For

Easy Muffin Recipe A La Magali

Yes, don't worry, I'm working on my backsplash, so I'll be able to show you a reveal soon... But with hard work, you win muffin point (or pizza point if you're a turtle) and I have the perfect fall recipe to share with you today.

Mais oui, je travaille à ma crédence pour pouvoir bientôt vous la montrer... Mais un travail aussi intensif donne droit à de petites douceurs et j'ai aujourd'hui pour vous une recette de muffins parfaite pour l'automne.

As usual with me it's very easy, made in a few minutes and explained with very useful pictures.

Comme d'habitude, la recette est très facile, réalisée en quelques minutes et illustrée par des photos très utiles!

What you need:
  • 1 and 3/4 cups flour,
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar,
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder,
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamom,
  • 1/2 cup of dried cranberries,
  • 1 egg,
  • 3/4 cup milk,
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (if you're not using salted better, add a pinch of salt).

Ce dont vous aurez besoin:
  • 220 g de farine,
  • 125 g de sucre roux,
  • 2 cuillerées à café de levure,
  • 1/2 cuillerée à café de cannelle en poudre,
  • 1/2 tasse de cranberries séchées,
  • 1 oeuf,
  • 200 mL de lait,
  • 30 g de beurre fondu (pensez à ajouter une pincée de sel si vous n'utilisez pas de beurre salé).

What you have to do:
  • Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamom in a bowl. 
  • Add the cranberries and stir so they are coated in the dry mix (it'll prevent them from diving in the bottom of your batter later).
  • In an other bowl, combine egg, milk and butter (not to hot or your egg will cook instantly).
  • Add this to the flour mixture and stir quickly (not too long or your muffins will be dry).
  • Line a muffin tray with baking cups and pour the batter in twelve muffin cups.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in a 400°F preheated oven.

 Ce que vous devez faire:
  • Mélanger la farine, le sucre, la levure et la cannelle.
  • Ajouter les cranberries at mélanger pour qu'elles soient bien recouvertes du mélange sec.
  • Dans un autre bol, battre l'oeuf, le lait et le beuure fondu (pas trop chaud).
  • Ajouter ce mélange à la farine en une seule fois et mélanger rapidement (pas trop, sinon les muffins sont secs).
  • Mettre des petits godets dans votre moule à muffins et en remplir douze.
  • Cuire 20 à 25 minutes dans un four préchauffé à 200°C.

Now who didn't read anything because they were too busy trying to see my backsplash? Be careful, I give extra-homework to pupils who can't focus!

Alors, qui n'a rien lu parce qu'il se concentrait sur les aperçus de ma crédence dans les photos?  Ce n'est pas bien, punition!

 As you can see, the masking tape is still there, the sockets aren't back in place and there's one more coat to do... I'm off to work again after one last bite!

Comme vous pouvez le voir, ce n'est pas fini! Le scotch protecteur est toujours en place, les prises ne sont pas remises car il me reste une couche à faire. Allez, j'y retourne après une dernière bouchée.

See you soon for the reveal!

A bientôt pour de vraies photos de la crédence!

  1. Ils ont l'air délicieux... J'adore la tasse avec les prunes et la théière aussi. Ce ne serait pas de la vaisselle anglaise ?

  2. Dear Magali,

    delicious muffins, but I am to busy admiring your backsplash, that looks a lot like b...b.... Very pretty!!!! I have been focussing, you see. So I am not due for extra homework, I hope? I have really had enough for this month. Very beautiful cup by the way...
    Yours Sarah

  3. Hello Magali!!! It was my birthday on Friday, and how wonderful to have so many wonderful posts to read from my favorite Little White Cottage! I loved the wandering around the cottage posts and got all teary eyed at how lovely the fountains are, even before I saw the film of the fountains with the music, how wonderful! And I loved so much to see the wedding pictures, and to actually see your face, you are just as lovely as I imagined!!! And then, for this weekend, the back splash post! I adore bead board backsplash, so imagine my delight to see some actual bead board back splash going on in the cottage with the muffin post! I am so excited for you, if I had been able to stay in my own house I would have been putting bead board backsplash in there as well, I think it is such a wonderful cottage look and quite my favorite. I am excited to try the muffins too, I am actually making chicken pie a la Magali for dinner tonight, maybe I will make muffins tomorrow. I think this recipe sound wonderful, and I think it might be nice with some apple in it as well. I will report back if I try it with apple and let you know how that comes out. So, in summary, it's been wonderful fun at the Little White Cottage as always, and thank you for such a wonderful weekend!

  4. Oh, these look so good . . . and I love easy simple recipes:)
    I also love the name of this post . . . very clever.
    Have a great day and enjoy your muffins and tea:)

  5. Bead board and muffins!!! How great are those two things together.

  6. Magali, these will be the very next muffins I make. They are exactly the type that I like! Looking forward to seeing the backsplash!

  7. tout travail mérite.... récompense !!
    quel teinte de peinture as tu choisies ? j'hésite pour ma cuisine ...

    1. J'ai choisi le même "vert d'eau/ verre poli par la mer" pour le plan de travail que pour les murs. Cela donne un petit air cottage de bord de mer sans les clichés de la mouette en plastique qui ornait la cuisine quand j'ai acheté la maison!

  8. They look so darn good and I am so hungry right now. I tried to reach through my screen and steal one of yours.....but it just didn't work for me so now I might try these muffins in my pizza oven today. Wish me luck!

  9. Bead board! Woo Hoo! It looks so pretty and PERFECT for the cottage kitchen. Thank you for a great new recipe. I can't wait to try.

  10. These look great, perfect for a fall tea. Thanks so much for sharing at the Make it Monday Party! Hope to see you again next week.

  11. Enfin ! Après avoir tant parlé, expliqué, raconté, narré ..... toutes les aventures dans la création d'une cuisine, je me demandais, si l'envie de cuisiner avait disparu (par peur d'abimer cette magnifique pièce ?) ou bien si tout ce questionnement n'avait fait que raviver l'envie de pétrir, mélanger, cuire et ...gouter ! Merci pour cette recette que je note ds un coin de mon ordi. A bientôt

  12. Il semblerait que tu aies mis du lambris !!!
    Tes muffins sont bien sympathiques, Miaaaaaaam. Excellente soirée. Bises. Babette

  13. Those muffins look so yummie, I wish they would pop out of the computer!!! Enjoy, Marcy

  14. Oh I just love muffins...and fall tasting ones just seem to taste so much better. Even though I tried ever so hard NOT to look at your backsplash...I do see it. But I won't comment until the reveal. I'm going to try and convert your recipe to gluten free and dairy free...I'll let you know how it turns out. Looks yummy!!!

  15. Looks so yummy! What a shame, I have never cooked muffin before. I think I should try it. Thank you for sharing

    1. You should definitely try: the recipe is the easiest in the world!

  16. yOUR MUFFINS really look delish
    thanks for sharing the recipe.

  17. I LOVE cranberry muffins - and I love a brand new sparkling clean oven too !!!
    Your backsplash is going to be amazing Magali!

  18. Those muffins look delicious! Thanks for sharing your recipe with us at Make It Monday!

  19. Those cranberry muffins look so good. Love the tea cup as well. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

  20. Your muffins look delicious! I just made some pumpkin muffins the other day. Can't wait to see your backsplash!

  21. Hi Magali,

    Love your title! Your autumn muffins look delicious. Like you, I appreciate simple recipes, both for their prep time, and ingredients. Can't wait to see that backsplash!!


  22. Ah, yes, Magali. I love anything with cranberries, and your muffins look wonderful. One would go so well with the cup of tea I'm sipping as I read your lovely blog. I'll pin for baking soon. xxx ~ Nancy

    1. They are perfect with a cup of tea! Tell me how yours go when you try the recipe.

  23. I have not made muffins for such a long time. Baking in the summer always feels a bit wrong to me...unless it is a pie of some sort but bring on baking in the fall and the winter and the whole house is happy!! Thanks for a great looking recipe.

  24. Cranberry muffins and tea?! I'm there!!! Sounds yummy.
    Can't wait for that back splash.

  25. They look so good, I am jealous of your lovely clean new oven!
