A friend of mine is having a baby in 2 weeks. I would like to make her muffins to freeze -other than banana nut and blueberry-for when the baby comes. Please suggest easy to freeze muffins and tips on how to best defrost them so they won't end up soggy. Thank you.

I especially left out blueberry muffins because the texture was really soggy after defrosting, if you have a good tip that I can avoid that with blueberry muffins I would love to learn from you. TIA. :)

Little nutmeg-scented mini muffins are rolled in cinnamon sugar to make a treat that tastes like a donut and is fast to whip up. You can substitute butter for margarine.

This is a delicious muffin. I just thaw in the container I pull them from the freezer in. Never had a problem with sogginess.

'As a child, I always loved the gooey surprise in the center of jelly-filled doughnuts,' remembers Darlene Markel from Stayton, Oregon. 'These yummy muffins offer that same sweet filling, but they're baked instead of fried.'

This recipe can be your starting point for a wide array of sweet and savory muffins, depending on what you decide to add. You can choose blueberries or Cheddar, for instance. It's up to you.

this is a basic recipe; you can add anything you have or what she likes. I never had much luck with freezing blueberry or pineapple ones. Others, I like to take out of freezer and put in fridge the night before to defrost. What a great friend you are, she will certainly appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Thank you misty will save this, looks good! I appreciate the tips too, blueberry never works for me either. Thanks for the sweet note. I have been blessed with great friends, I might as well give a little back to them when they need a little bit of help :)

Muffins that combine the wonderful texture of apples with the warm taste of pumpkin. A simple streusel topping gives them a little something extra.
